I love this place; I want to live here! I could sleep on the trapeze!"
Stella Hu, birthday girl
In our belly dance and circus arts studio, we help students build technical skills, artistry, grace and strength in circus arts and belly dance. Heart, humor and community spirit are at the core of our teaching.

Our small-group circus classes are by season session ONLY,
no drop ins. All of our circus arts classes for the session are sold out, please email if you'd like to be added to the wait list.
