Welcome to Aerial Arts & Acro!

The Aerial Arts & Acro program provides a safe and fun learning environment for every child that walks through the door! Our instructors will teach young artists and athletes how to safely perform athletic feats in the air as well as fostering an atmosphere that encourages growth both inside and outside of the gym. 

Why Aerial & Acro? 

Aerial and Acro is an ever-growing art form thanks to the popularity of companies such as Cirque du Soleil as well as the rapidly growing community of aerialists on social media. Aerial combines athleticism, strength, flexibility, and artistry and gives both children and adults an unmatchable confidence! Learn how to climb, wrap, flip and twist in a unique and fun environment that you won't find anywhere else!

What to wear?

We recommend fitted clothing (sleeves, high waisted leggings or pants, pulled back hair).

No jewelry or zippers.

Avoid lotion prior to class.
