“[I] managed to do a back-tuck while being spotted by Javen . . .  It was totally a rush! I didn’t even realize I landed on my feet until like a minute after. It was like “woah, I really just did that” ~ Ryan C.

“I attempted the foot web after refusing it for two years of beginner’s classes due to fear. I finally “did” it and I was glad I overcame that fear. It was an important milestone for me as a 52 year old with no background in the gymnastic sports…” ~ Joel L.

The Actors Gymnasium was originally founded to provide performers with the multi-disciplinary training they wanted and needed to make more exciting theatre, including aerial acrobatics, stilt-walking, juggling, hand-balancing, puppetry, stage combat. Now, the adult classes cater to both individuals looking for unique ways to stay physical and learn new skills, as well as performers looking to hone their technique.

Adult classes include but are not limited to: Aerial Arts, Circus Arts, Circus Fitness, Contortion, Gymnastics, Parkour/Free Running and Stage Combat.

Students who are looking to take their circus training and theatrical skills to the next level or audition into a multi-year circus program may be interested in the Professional Circus Training Program.
