How do children benefit from taking aerial classes?
By practicing aerial disciplines, young students can develop multi-genre skills. In addition to improving their spatial orientation, fine and gross motor skills, balance, strength and flexibility they also develop life skills such as teamwork, focus, trust and responsibility. What sets circus apart from other sport activities is that circus is not competitive and has an artistic, creative aspect. Another important aspect of practicing circus disciplines, which affects all areas of life, is the need of overcome fears. This is not something that you can take for granted when you are practicing circus arts!
Our Instructors Lift You Up
The relationship between student and teacher is at the heart of any learning experience. At Agora, instructors will push you while making you feel like you can overcome any challenge. Our instructors strive to give you the focused instruction you need in order to help you reach your goals. Many younger Agora students find mentors in their instructors, and adults find the opportunity to make a new friend.
Safety Is Our Priority
No one wants to worry about their safety when they’re trying to have fun. That’s why at Agora we have maintained the ratio of students to teachers low, so that instructors can keep an eye on all students just in case. We also have invested in professional rigging and thorough matting for our space. Fostering a culture of safety at Agora has helped us remain accident-free ever since we opened our studio!
Choose & Feel Accomplished
Our studio has one of the most comprehensive class offerings in the area, so you can choose what interests and fits you best! We offer classes for a variety of levels and types of aerial, as well as seasonal workshops for specialties we don’t offer regularly. Our curriculum is designed to help you see constant progress in your ability while allowing for individual flexibility. Agora aims to help its students not only do aerial, but to do it well.
Everybody Is Welcome
More than an aerial studio Agora is a fun-loving community. As new students take classes and participate in our showcases they form relationships with other students and our staff. We pride ourselves in creating an environment where everyone can feel welcomed and supported, both in their aerial skill development and beyond.
