Circus Sampler

Learn Basics and a fun combo on Aerial Sling, Lyra, Trapeze, and Silks. Each class will be taught on a different apparatus. Get to know them all and then focus on your favorite!!

Sling Skills Level 1

Aerial sling is kind of the gate-way apparatus to aerial dance. It is a low hanging hammock type set-up that is comfortable, safe and doesn't require the same amount of strength or coordination that aerial silks does. In this class we will explore connections to the floor traveling upwards and building up that core and arm strength needed for the other apparatuses. The sling is a great combination of the trapeze and fabric- so two times the fun!

Aerial Silks Skills Level 2

These classes will build onto the aerial vocabulary we learned in Level 1. We'll focus expanding on fundamental moves, and building strength for inverts in the air. We'll also learn our first flips in the silks.

Dance Trapeze Skills Level 1

Explore the world of the horizontal apparatus with us in this fun class! Don't think of the flying trapeze where you release the bar to be caught mid-air. Dance trapeze stays close to the ground and is rigged from a single point for spinning. With the metal bar for support it is a great beginner apparatus. The ropes offer a variety of transitions and beautiful poses. The trapeze becomes a dance partner as you learn to flip and fly.

Mobility & Flexibility Class

In this much needed class we'll focus on creating more mobility in our joints while also working on active flexibility training for a specific goal. Each week the goal will change, options include: Splits, Straddle, Back and Shoulders, Pike, and Hip Extension. Active Flexibility allows you to build strength at your end range movement, increase control, and safely learn how to use your muscles to go deeper into a stretch.

Lyra Skills Level 1

The Lyrical Hoop is a great place to start your circus journey. Learn basic mounts, create shapes, learn aerial terminology and technique without the constriction of fabric.

Circus Circuit

For Lunchtime we'll have a traditional circuit training with a circus flair! This class combines a circuit style workout with circus strength and endurance exercises. Appropriate for all fitness levels and all fitness participants!

The Circus Arts are a beautiful, creative, and challenging art form that builds unparalleled upper body and core strength, kinesthetic awareness, coordination, and confidence.
