We offer small-group circus arts lessons for children and adults by the session. Our current sessions are all sold out. You can also book individually scheduled private lessons and semi-private lessons in different aspects of circus arts. Private lessons or performance coaching in static trapeze, silks, lyra, acrobatics, wire or sling are always an option. They start at $75/hour lesson for one person. The price goes up for more than one person. Private lesson registration links here. Email us to set one up.

To foster an individualized learning environment and to ensure maximum safety, we do not allow more than 10 students in our session classes. No drop-ins are allowed to our session classes. We build a personal, supportive community and help students set goals, build strength slowly and safely, and guide them to achieving their full potential no matter what skill level they start at. Our caring approach fosters confidence, teamwork, self-expression and creativity.

For the session classes we do not accept students younger than 7, though we do book private lessons for a younger child. To make sure our classes are a good fit for you or your child, you must have the permission of directors Melinda and Sacha Pavlata to join our classes. Please give us a call at 781 893 2491 or email us to discuss the possibilities.

Our ongoing class sessions for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays for the January - June 2017 session are sold out. If you would like to be on the wait list for future classes, please send an email.

If you would like to add your child to the wait list for our 2017 Summer program, please send an email. We will be registering students for our 1/2 day sessions in July in late March.


Here’s Moody Street Circus’ daughter and teen teacher Zoe on tumblr. Visit Zoe’s page for a view of what the studio looks like.

Circus Arts Sessions are led by Moody Street Circus Studio Directors Sacha & Melinda Pavlata. The Pavlatas come from circus families that go back for over 6 generations. They have performed all over the world -- with the Flying Wallenda family on the high wire, in the Big Apple Circus, Circus Flora, the Pickle Family Circus and countless European Circuses. From early childhood on they have entertained audiences in the ring with world-class acrobatics, worked with horses, on high wire, unicycles, trampoline, static trapeze, aerial hoop, clowning and much more. Sacha Pavlata was featured in the major motion pictures Big Top Pee Wee and Annie and was part of the award-winning 7 - person pyramid in the Wallenda troupe that won a silver clown at the prestigious Monte Carlo Circus Festival.

Our students range in age from 7 to (in the case of some private students) 67. We teach low wire, mini trampoline, unicyle, rola bola, rolling globe, hula hoop, aerial fabric, aerial hoop, aerial sling, static trapeze, juggling, acrobatics, pyramids and partnering, and more. We have coached professional figure skaters on how to build a fusion aerial act, helped actors learn circus skills for special parts, and enriched the lives of many children with the beauty and challenge of circus arts.

Happy Circusing!
