WHAT STUDENTS SAY



Shipra Shukla'Every time I train with Elena on the static trapeze she helps me advance my skills with her commitment to the highest standards. She teaches me to execute every move with technical precision, beauty, and safety. I never thought I’d be posing like a gazelle or hanging upside down from one leg in my 40s.'
 

- Shipra Shukla

 











Patrick Wood'After my first aerial conditioning class, I never looked back. At Circus Center I'm learning to use my athletic and artistic sides to create beautiful things! Swinging Trapeze makes me feel alive in a way nothing else can, and I hope to make it my career one day.'

- Patrick Wood
