Preschool Gym - come tumble and FLY! – For ages 2.5 – 5 years. The first goal of this class is to encourage these students to work with the instructor without the help of their parents. This may take time, but that's okay! Activities include listening games, obstacle course, hanging on apparatuses, cooperative games, and meditation time.

Aerial Prep – For ages 5-8 years. This class is for motor learning and development through the lens of Circus arts! Includes personal and social well being, obstacle course, tumbling, dance, yoga, aerial sling, lyra and silks, juggling, hula hooping, rolla bola and more!

9-11 years aerial acrobatics – We offer classes in aerial silks, sling, trapeze, and lyra. New student session based enrollment can be done through the 2nd week of a session. New students may drop in through the 4th week of a session. After that, students need to do a $30 thirty minute assessment to be placed into the appropriate class. All students should begin in the Intro Level of any discipline unless having done an assessment.

Chinese Pole - Unlike the dancer pole, This one is thick and coated in rubber. Participants learn to climb and flip and support one another. Students should wear jeans, tennis shoes or specialty shoes, and bring long sleeves!

T(w)EENS – Aerial acrobatic classes are for socializing, athletic conditioning, learning new skills and sharpening old, and getting creative. It is a FUN way to maintain fitness, psycho-emotional well being and healthy relationships. Teens may also join adult classes! Same session format option as 9-11yrs.

Advancement through the levels

Our Lyra and Trapeze program is just a couple classes big. We now offer intro-L1 and L2 Lyra! They are great for cross training and broadening skill base and content knowledge! We highly recommend fabrics students attend.

Our Fabrics program is extensive because we have the height. That's right!
