Classes

Seaside Circus, located in Gloucester, Ma offers professional level classes in static trapeze and aerial silks, for all ages and all experience levels.  Beginners are welcome, as are experienced aerialists looking to hone their craft.  Classes are small, so everyone has the chance to work on their own apparatus.  Instruction is always tailored to the needs and abilities of each student.

 

Workshops in choreography, aerial act creation, aerial hammock, dance trapeze, acting for aerialists (and aerial work for actors), as well as a variety of other specialty topics, are also offered periodically.  

 

Can’t find a class that fits your schedule? 

Consider taking a private lesson at a time that works for you.  Or if you’ve got at least three students interested in participating - a class of your choice can be created based on what you want to work on.  Email us for details on all of these options.
