Sahara Storm Studio and Circus Arts' top trainer and nutrition consultant Krista Gray ringmasters a boisterous saturnalia of workout courses, melding fitness basics with mischievous flair in a safe, supportive environment. Basic adult classes limberly span the gamut from the beautiful twirling staves, fans, and flames of Flowology's Poi moves to the studio's seductive specialty, Tribal Fusion Belly Dance. Premium classes for adults (listed in purple) include the high-flying Aerial Performance Skill and Object Manipulation class, where students twist and climb ever higher on suspended silks, hoops, and the acrobatic pole, honing strength, grace, and windsock impressions.
Children's classes keep young limbs limber in flashy circus-themed classes, with openings for any graduate of crawling college. Basic kids' classes include Big Top Tots, an adult-child class for ages walking to 3 that returns in August, and an adolescent-level Flowology course for ages 8 and older that develops the coordination necessary for growing bodies to make pencils stick firmly into classroom ceilings.
