Aerial Arts NYC

Aerial Arts NYC is one of Manhattan’s top training grounds for the aerial and circus arts, and has been for for nearly 9 years. 

Located in Chelsea in a newly renovated, 3,000-square-foot location, AANYC offers 4-week recurring sessions of weekly classes in Silks, Lyra, Static Trapeze (post COVID), Contortion, and Ground Circus Arts for students ages 6-16. Students have the opportunity to take multiple classes per week, according to their specific scheduling needs, allowing them to learn and work on a number of circus disciplines from silks and lyra to handstands and contortion. Classes are organized by age; if a child’s skill level is well beyond their age, they will be asked to complete certain skills in order to be moved up to the correct level. The youth staff is experienced, energized, and ready to lead the next generation of circus fanatics.

Class Levels:

  • Big Tops: 6-9 years
  • Ring Leaders: 10-13 years
  • Main Attractions: 14-16 years

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, Aerial Arts is offering a more limited program at this time, in order to follow all necessary safety precautions and guidelines. Workshops will be capped at 5 students, with a required minimum of 3 students signed into a workshop in order to run. Please visit the website for a full schedule and more information.
