Learn Circus Arts

Learning the circus arts not only builds strength, but also confidence and the list of benefits is virtually endless. We like to think of our classes as a unique way to get fit while having fun.  As for our company members, they are not only our top notch performers, but also highly qualified coaches in the circus arts.  Many members of our company have trained at prestigious professional circus schools while others have competed and ranked highly in both national and international competitions.  Our home studio is at the Mobtown Ballroom located in Baltimore City.  Please visit their website for class offerings www.mobtownballroom.com

"Before discovering aerials, there weren't many fitness outlets that I really enjoyed. Now, I train with Kelly Jo every week and am dedicated to practicing because I love it so much – I can actually do pull-ups! Aerial-dance is extremely satisfying because you can challenge yourself through physical and mental goals that you never felt were possible; and be artistic at the same time. Kelly Jo is a great and inspiring trainer that helps me push my boundaries every day! "--Dani Baer
