At The Circus Project, classes cover everything from cardio workouts to developing circus skills. In aerial yoga and fitness classes, students use acrobatic instruments to condition their minds and bodies in new ways, much like doing pushups on a flying carpet. Those tools are put to a more dedicated use in adult and kids' aerial classes, in which students hone the skills needed for live performance. Such techniques must be mastered if students are ever to join The Circus Project company, which performs new works in Portland and beyond.
Founded by Jenn Cohen, who lends more than 20 years' experience as a circus teacher and performer to her role as artistic director, The Circus Project empowers homeless and at-risk youth and young adults with the transformative power of circus performance. Beyond that enduring mission, the nonprofit company's current efforts include classes for children and adults of all experience levels and walks of life—including a separate track for aspiring professional performers.
After several years of suffering through classes filled with tweens, or missing sessions because of rigid scheduling, Evie Graham started her own dance studio. At Vega Dance Lab, everyone from people who have never strapped on groove shoes to seasoned students aged 16 and older can school their left feet or untalented dancing bears in nine dances on a drop-in basis. Shuffle-savvy instructors school pupils in proper ballet technique, burlesque-inspired choreography, and hip-hop cabaret, where dancers perform hip-hop moves with a cabaret-inspired flair.
Teachers also integrate dance into intensive workouts such as Cardio Funk, an exercise regimen set to hip-hop music, or Tease & Tone, a session divided between 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of dance. Lessons kick off six days a week in Vega Dance Lab’s spacious, graffiti-decorated warehouse where students can test their latest moves by dancing out of the way of oncoming forklifts.
