We are more than doubling our square footage and adding on another 1,600 square feet of studio space! This means 4 new movement spaces as well as expanding our aerial space another 400 sqft past the teal curtains to allow for two separate classes to run in the main area! We are also remolding a designated stage, backstage, and greenroom space to allow for shows and events!
With the strong support of our local community we are fundraising for to upgrade the studio. Our new space will give us the opportunity to expand kids' after-school programming, improve our overall accessibility, and offer even more events, classes, and activities to all.

Expansion? What all does that mean?
So glad you asked! There is SO much that goes into turning a warehouse into a Circus School.
With safety being a top priority we will extend the carpet bonded flooring throughout the aerial/acro space.
For the movement spaces we will be installing a shock absorbing foam sub-floor with a beautiful laminate hardwood finish to ensure the space is not only beautiful, but comfortable for long term use on dancers bodies.
We will be redesigning the space to include a performance stage complete with a huge backstage and greenrooms to accommodate any size group.
A designated 10' x 10' equipment room right off the studio floor for easy storage and management of all our studio equipment, props, and apparatus.
Two professional 45mm poles for independent training and practice
Four rentable private studio spaces for practices, consultations, photo/video recording, or any number of additional uses.
Expansion of our loft studio by 200 sqft for a total of 650 sqft of beautiful hardwood flooring
Installation of a 50 foot LED translucent wall
Electrical work to install additional outlets and lighting
and so much painting and scrubbing and more.
