At the Brookline Teen Center... Aerial Silks Classes on Fridays!

In these classes, students will learn the basics of moving in the air!  Students gain strength and flexibility, grace, and correct alignment while twisting, turning, climbing and controlled dropping on the aerial silks.  Students will learn positions and moves close to the ground, and then move higher with more advanced skills, as ability advances. Classes begin with warm-up and stretching, then move to the air, building on past lessons.  Students will likely learn to trust their new found strength and agility that will help them to gain confidence; maybe not only in the air!

Please email after submitting an application!

The Circus Up Community Troupe, Kirkos, founded in 2020, is a team of youth circus artists who perform bold and uplifting shows in the greater Boston area. In the tradition of "social circus," the Troupe practices and performs together for the purpose of celebrating what it looks like to courageously learn, play, and create together. Troupe members (ages 8-18) are always learning new skills through Circus Up classes and demonstrate what's possible when we work hard, stay curious about each other's differences, and leverage each other's unique strengths. The Troupe works hard to increase access to circus arts and address social issues while crafting collaborative circus acts that surprise, baffle, and delight. You can find them performing for local organizations and at a wide variety of community events. 


Movement Arts Creation Studio (MACS) has joined in a partnership with Circus Up!

Support from MACS starting in 2021 will underwrite studio rental for Kirkos to train and rehearse at the Commonwealth Circus Center. Thank you MACS!!!
