The Circus Lab is an experimental space designed to encourage creativity and forward thinking in the circus arts. Our goal is to instruct students in fundamental circus skills while allowing for 'play' on the equipment and encouraging their individual styles and interests in movement. Classes are taught in an all-around format: students develop a wide range of circus skills while gaining strength, hand-eye coordination and flexibility as they progress. Disciplines taught include trapeze, aerial silks, tumbling, trampoline, unicycle, aerial hoop, juggling, and partner acrobatics, and more.
