Juggling and Circus
Friday 5:30PM - 7PM Mike Hirschbach
Juggling and circus is an introduction for beginners and more experienced jugglers, from the basic 3 ball cascade to juggling 4 and 5 objects, club variations and rings. We explore passing variations and group patterns, explore take-aways, and also look at related manipulation skills like the diablo and flower sticks. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to juggle, or get better at it, this is the class for you!
MIXED LEVEL AERIAL PERFORMANCE
WEDNESDAY 8PM - 9:30PM Guinevere Last
This class is for intermediate and advanced students who are already familiar with some basic moves on silks. It is for any student who wants to get into the nitty gritty of silks theory and technique, build a strong foundation, increase endurance in the air, and learn more complex choreography. This is for students who want to improve performance skills and those who just want a good workout. Get ready to be challenged and be creative!

WEDNESDAY 6:30PM - 8PM PLUS NEW TIMES WEDNESDAY 5PM - 6:30PM & THURSDAY 5PM - 6:30PM
An introduction to the building blocks of acrobatics; handstands, bridges and cartwheels, and leads to the beginnings of front and back handsprings. This class is a great introduction to movement, regardless of your skill level. Watch skills and fitness develop hand in hand under Kyle's instruction, assuming you’re not afraid of getting a little sweaty.
