Circus Classes

Not sure where to start? Aerial Silks, AcroYoga, Aerial Yoga, and Tumbling are all great beginner-friendly classes to start with! All of our aerial classes are capped off at either 5 or 6 students. This small size limit allows us to work with each student individually, and at their own skill level. We have classes for all ages, fitness levels, and body types!

Aerial Silks

These are our most popular classes for new students. Our instructors work individually with each student and adapt to their level of strength and comfort. In this class, you will learn many movements in the silks, and in doing so, increase your upper body strength. But you'll be having so much fun, it won't feel like you're working out! We work over an 8-inch crash mat at all times, and all beginner moves are done low down to the ground. The core goals for this class are to be safe, and have fun!

The classes labelled as "Beginner Silks" are exclusively for beginners, while the class labelled as "Aerial Silks" are open to all levels, including first-timers through advanced students. Classes labelled "Int/Adv Silks", "Intermediate Silks", or "Adv Silks" are exclusively for intermediate or advanced students who have begun working on drops, and have trained at NOCA before. If you have significant previous aerial experience from another studio, give us a call before signing up.

Beginner and mixed level classes are open to ages 14+, but the majority of our students are college aged and older. Intermediate and Advanced classes are open to ages 15+.

AcroYoga

AcroYoga is a form of partner acrobatics that is fun and accessible for anyone! It combines elements of yoga, acrobatics, and thai massage. No experience is required, and you don't need to come with a partner. We work in groups of three: A base, a flyer, and a spotter. We make sure that everyone gets the opportunity to try all three of these positions with each move, and we usually shuffle the groups up randomly throughout the class. This class involves physical contact, so good personal hygeine is a requirement. Open to ages 15+.

Aerial Yoga

Aerial Yoga is a relatively new approach to a traditional yoga practice. We use a the fabric to support the weight of our bodies, helping us achieve various postures with more depth, ease and excitement. By relieving 20-80% of body weight, the hammock allows students to rapidly increase their flexibility while improving balance and core strength. In doing so, students are able to reach more advanced yoga poses if desired, like inversions, offering improvements in health and vitality. In addition, the silks are used as wraps on our bodies that gently massage. No aerial experience is required. Open to ages 14+.

Lyra

Lyra, also known as "Aerial Hoop" is a large steel ring resembling a hula-hoop, suspended from the ceiling, on which aerialists can perform. This class requires you to be able to consistently perform an inversion on the silks from off the ground before taking Lyra. Talk to your silks instructor about this if you're not sure if you're ready. Open to ages 14+.

It's intended primarily for beginners, but accomodations can be made for intermediate/advanced tumbling students. For beginners, this class starts with exercises to help you achieve or perfect your handstands, cartwheels, and round offs. As students progress, the class covers back handsprings, back tucks, walk-overs, aerials, and much more! This class uses the spring floor, fiberglass rod floor, tumbling track, and foam pit. Open to ages 15+. This class is brought to you by a partnership with Appalachian Tumbling and Gymnastics.

Aerial For Kids

Aerial Silks are a great way for students to increase strength and dexterity while having tons fun! They will get to climb, spin, hand upsidedown, and noodle around in the silks, all while learning new skills. We work over an 8-inch crash mat at all times. The core goals for this class are to be safe, and have fun!

Open to ages 7-14. We prepare a customized lesson plan for every class that we teach based on who is signed up. Because of this, it is a strict requirement that all kids are paid and signed up for their class online at least 12 hours before this class. We unfortunately cannot take walk-ins, or last minute signups in the kids class. Parents of children under 12 must remain present throughout the class.
