In ancient Rome, a circus was a building, a public equipped space for chariot racing, shows and other spectacles of the Classical period - modelled on the Circus Maximus. Today, a circus is a traveling company of performers that may include acrobats, clowns, trained animals, and other novelty acts.


A circus is usually a travelling show that includes acrobats, animal trainers, clowns and other novelty acts. However, there are circuses today with a permanent venue that do not travel, and some circuses do not have animal acts. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circus_(performing_art) [Jun 2004]
