ITHACA, N.Y. — Circus Culture has been bringing their gravity-defying youth performance on tour.

As part of a two-week camp, performers spend one week putting together a show and the next week performing. On Wednesday, they stopped by the Ithaca Children’s Garden to perform their space-themed show, “Falling Up.”

There is one more free show at 10:30 a.m. Friday in Dewitt Park in Ithaca.

Circus Culture is Ithaca’s circus school, with workshops and activities for all ages and abilities. There are classes in acrobatics, aerials, tumbling, juggling, unicycling, handstands and more, according to their fall schedule. They also offer parties and camps.

Take a look at some of the exciting moments from the performance Wednesday at Ithaca Children’s Garden:
