Preschool dance, 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.

Open Bounce is on Friday mornings (discontinued until further notice) – Open play time in the gym with mats and a big bouncy house!

Aerial Preparation – 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, rola bola and more!

NEW 6-8yr Level 1 fabrics - This class is for students who have taken at least 2 sessions of Aerial Preparation or have tested into this level via an assessment with Super Jes. To schedule a $30 thirty minute assessment Contact Us

9-11 years aerial acrobatics – We offer session based enrollment for students hoping to perform in our student showcases throughout the school year. New student enrollments to the sessions can be made up to the 5th week of each session (call or email to enroll with a pro rated fee). We have a separate Choreography session this year for our December show.

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 as 9-11yrs.

  • *You can be sure that it is safe to return to our space! We have excellent air flow in our space Plus a new HEPA air filtration system. Our instructors are vaccinated. We follow state guidelines for mask wearing and cleanliness. Hand sanitizer and soap is available for everyone’s use.

Advancement through the levels

Our Lyra and Trapeze program is just a couple classes big. All level teens and adults are welcome, though we have mostly beginner/advanced beginner content in these. 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!
