During Circus Arts Fitness classes, professionals lead students in a warm-up before dividing them into stations, each of which corresponds to a different apparatus. They teach techniques on the trapeze and tightwire that enhance muscular strength and coordination, as well as juggling, Spanish web, and balance-board skills. A low teacher-to-student ratio ensures safety and personal attention as pupils flip and swing at their chosen paces.
Circus Arts Institute
For more than 20 years, Carrie Heller's life has been a balancing act between honing her circus talents and helping others. Today, the licensed clinical social worker, a founding member of the American Youth Circus Organization, blends therapy methods with big-top techniques at the Circus Arts Institute, benefiting children and adults alike with mind-and body benefiting acrobatics that send students swinging, twirling, and laughing through the air.
Carrie and her team of instructors acquaint students with circus performance fundamentals using the trapeze, tight wire, Spanish web, and juggling balls. They bolster core and upper-body strength during Circus Arts Fitness workouts, which have been featured on CNN for their exciting approach to toning. For students with special needs, such as sensory challenges or ADD, they host Circus Arts Therapy classes. These sessions channel playful and positive energy as small groups learn to navigate circus equipment, enhancing their confidence, social skills, and physical coordination in a much more natural way than going on a handstand speed date.
