Can I do Circus?

Aerial Silks | Ages 14+

Aerial Silks (or Aerial fabrics/tissue) are one of the most well-recognized Circus apparatus in the world. Each class uses large Tricot Nylon fabrics suspended from the ceiling in two strips to allow students to wrap, climb, lock, and drop in elegant and artistic movements. Here at WCS, we’ve developed a curriculum accessible to raw beginners with minimal fitness backgrounds which enables our students to develop strength, flexibility, and body awareness. These courses bring students through a series of movements that build on each other for future combination flows. We focus on fundamentals initially and move on to new technical skills and tricks. As students gain proficiency in Silks, they are allowed to advance through the Intermediate and Advanced classes with instructor approval.

Prerequisites:

  • Intro/beginner – No Prerequisites
  • Novice – Understanding of the basics
  • Intermediate – Instructor Approval

Mixed Aerials | Ages 14+

(Formerly All-Around Circus)

Mixed Aerials is a sample class. It allows you to dive right in and experience all the different disciplines we offer at WCS. It makes a fantastic first class if you’re new to the Circus experience, but also keeps our seasoned veterans engaged as they cross-train on each apparatus. The Intro to Mixed Aerials class gives you not just an idea of what a discipline is but lays the foundations for taking a Beginner level course in that class. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, chances are this class will tell you and you’ll have a blast finding out. Mixed Aerials covers Aerial Straight Silks, Aerial Hammock, Lyra, Trapeze, and Inversions. The class covers a skill or two per day and provides the opportunity build a good base in each.

Acro Yoga | Ages 14+

Acro Yoga is partnered acrobatics that incorporates balance and geometry to create breathtaking movements and poses.

Classes consist of learning poses, postures, and transitions for both basing and flying. Students will get the chance to try out both roles to better understand the dynamics of movement with another person. We focus on fundamentals initially and move on to new technical hand-to-hand, tosses, catches, multi-person moves, and advanced Adagio techniques. As students gain proficiency in class, they are allowed to advance through the Intermediate and Advanced classes with instructor approval.
