STARTING POINTS


INTRO TO HANDSTAND

A strong, stable handstand is the foundation of circus acrobatics, and a whole-body skill that anyone can learn! In our entry-level Intro to Handstand class, you'll be introduced to the three pillars of handstand—lighter, thinner, more alive—and practice the basic handstand form.

INTRO TO ACROBATICS

Get started with Intro to Acrobatics, our entry-level introduction to the foundations of the ancient Chinese acrobatics tradition. Specially created for new students, in this 90-minute class you’ll condition, stretch, and learn the basics of handstands and tumbling, including forward and backward rolls, cartwheels, and round-offs.

CHINESE POLE

Find your inner climber in our Chinese Pole classes. In this entry-level class you'll build strength, dexterity, and endurance as you learn to climb, slide, and hold poses on the acrobatic pole.

People of any age and fitness level can start any of the above classes at any time. Session enrollment is encouraged.

Round out and accelerate your training with one of our Conditioning classes like Acro Conditioning and a flexibility class like Stretching. Purchase our New Student Pack, try all three and save!

EJ-Headshot-Option-2WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

 


"I’ve done Flying Trapeze, hand-balancing, teeterboard, trampoline, tumbling, and parkour. The Circus Center instructors are people you can learn anything from. They're smart, professional, calm, encouraging, and I trust them with my safety every week. These days we even perform together."
