Circus Fitness Classes

Cirque based fitness classes: Teen & Adult conditioning and skills classes (ages 13 and up)

Studio Seva offers a fitness based circus program to students who are looking for a fun way to get stronger in a supportive and community driven environment. This is not a professional training program; we are just having a good time while getting stronger and building a supportive, non-competitive aerial community.

Get stronger, more flexible, more confident, and have fun while learning skills and tricks on aerial circus apparatus. This is a fun alternative to fitness classes and strength training. You will build upper body, core, and leg strength as well as increase mobility in hips, legs, and shoulders. The Circus class is taught as a conditioning class, working from the ground up, and is an all levels class. Class begins with a 15 minute warm up to prepare for apparatus work (please be on time).  

The circus schedule is tentative. Please check the online schedule before coming to the studio. Pre-registration for circus class is required. All circus classes are limited in space for safety and for better class experience.

Corde Lisse (Smooth Rope)

Aerial circus apparatu that involves acrobatics on a vertical rope. Working on the rope includes a combination of climbs, wraps, Dives, and drops. The ropes are made out of soft cotton, strongly braided and woven to create a thick, smooth rope. Basic climbs, wraps, and drops are some of the main skills practiced on the rope. Grip strength and spatial body awareness are required in this art.

This apparatus is a bit more challenging and is best learned in a one-on-one setting. Private training and conditioning sessions are available upon request and by appointment only.

$35 per person/one hour session

Corde Volante (Cloud Swing)

A rope suspended from the ceiling in the shape of a "U" or "V" shape. The cloud swing is made of soft cotton rope which resembles the smooth rope (corde lisse). The cloud swing is a relatively newer apparatus in the aerial arts community, and adopts many of its skills and techniques from the static or swinging trapeze and the Aerial dance sling. You will explore inverted, standing, climbing, and swinging based skills and tricks. Drops and dives are also incorporated in the cloud swing.

This apparatus is a bit more challenging and is best learned in a one-on-one setting. Private training and conditioning sessions are available upon request and by appointment only.

trapeze.jpg

Static Dance Trapeze

The Static Dance Trapeze is an aerial apparatus consisting of a bar hung from ropes. Unlike the flying trapeze, this one generally stays in place, with the exception of spinning. Climbing, inverting, rolling and turning every which way on these apparatuses, students discover their center of gravity in many different positions. You will learn how to move with grace and ease while gaining strength and control. On the trapeze you will learn to use the bar and ropes to mount, invert, balance and transition with STRong, fluid movements.

This apparatus is a bit more challenging and is best learned in a one-on-one setting. Private training and conditioning sessions are available upon request and by appointment only.

Aerial Chinese Pole

The Aerial Chinese Pole is coated in rubber to provide more traction for circus acrobatic tricks. This is not a dance pole. Shoes should be worn on the pole to work on climbing, hooking, and basic sits. Transitions are taught slowly on this apparatus. It is a mobile pole, so movement is more challenging than a fixed pole. You will learn to invert and transition once the basic principles of this apparatus are learned and you are confident in your control of the pole.

This apparatus is a bit more challenging and is best learned in a one-on-one setting. Private training and conditioning sessions are available upon request and by appointment only.

$35 per person/one hour session

Aerial Cube

The aerial cube is a three DIMENSIONAL aerial experience. While spinning, you will move from corner to corner, side to side, and top to bottom. Grip strength is a must on this apparatus, but more importantly, spatial awareness in more than one plane. You will invert, climb, twist, and stretch to new heights, and capacities.

This apparatus is a bit more challenging and is best learned in a one-on-one setting. Private training and conditioning sessions are available upon request and by appointment only.
