About

Street Light Circus is a collaboration of artists that seek to build and promote a thriving circus scene in Washington, D.C. We hope to make circus accessible, as a mobile and evolving art form that stokes conversation, interaction and inclusion. Circus is a way to harness not just the skill and talent of a community, but the unique character that makes someplace feel like 'home.' 

Founders

DANI PIERCE STEUBER approaches every project with a vision and draws her subjects to life, thriving off of the creative energy of dancers, musicians, circus performers and other artists, framing each character in the light of their own vision. Her informed eye and playful direction deliver extraordinary feats from the lens to her viewers.

Aboard food trucks, in kitchens, on the streets, on stage and from his home in Northeast, Christian has acquired a well-traveled palate -- for D.C.'s culinary, artistic and editorial delights -- without ever having to leave city bounds.
