Youth & Teen Program

Youth Circus Sessions

Headed by the wonderful Laura Haley, Aerial Arts will offer recurring sessions of weekly classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Silks, Lyra, Static Trapeze (post COVID), Contortion, and Ground Circus Arts for students ages 6-16. Our youth staff is experienced, energized and ready to lead the next generation of circus fanatics.

Students have the opportunity to take multiple classes per week, according to their specific scheduling needs, allowing them to learn and work on a number of circus disciplines from silks & lyra to handstands and contortion.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering a more limited program at this time, in order to follow all necessary safety precautions and guidelines.

Classes will be organized by age (if your child’s skill level is well beyond their age, you will be asked to complete certain skills, by your instructor, in order to be moved up to the correct level).

Youth Private Circus Classes

Our minimum age for participation in regularly scheduled classes is 16. For students under age 16, we do offer the option of Private Class instruction in 30-minute and 1-hour sessions according to instructor and space availability. If you would like to set something up for young students, please email the office below. Visit this page for more details about Private Class instruction.

All students under age 18 will need a signed waiver by a legal parent/guardian before being able to take class. This waiver is valid for the current calendar year and will need to be replaced each subsequent year.

If you would like the waiver in advance, please email the office, and we can send over a PDF copy that you can print out and bring along when you arrive for your first class.
