The Actors Gymnasium offers a comprehensive series of courses in physical theatre and circus arts designed for students of all ages and skill levels.
In addition to offering classes year-round, we also have a nine month professional circus training program for artists looking to advance their career, a summer intensive program for teens and adults, private lessons, and summer and winter kids camps.
Our regular classes are typically divided into 16 week terms. Though we encourage students to save money and guarantee a spot in class by registering in advance for a full term, pro-rated registration is available for most of the session on a rolling basis. We also offer financial aid.
Our popular adult classes cater to both individuals looking for unique ways to stay active and learn new skills, as well as performers who want to build to strength and skills needed to make more exciting theatre, including aerial acrobatics, stilt-walking, juggling, hand-balancing, puppetry, stage combat and more.
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.
If you’re interested in trying out a class, we offer $30 drop ins for our adult classes.
“The Actors Gym family is an incredibly welcoming organization that builds friendships, bridges barriers, and forms amazing bonds.”
Kids Classes (3rd Grade and Over)
We offer a variety of classes that not only teach various circus, aerial, and performing arts skills including juggling, unicycling, stilt-walking, tight-wire, aerial silks, lyra, trapeze, and Spanish web; but also teach children how to take risks, explore their imagination and creativity, build their strength and self confidence, and develop discipline and focus.
Each class typically concludes with Parent Observation Week where family and friends can come see all of the new skills the students have learned.
Students seeking performance opportunities can audition to participate in one of our two annual youth circuses or to become a member of the acclaimed Actors Gymnasium Teen Ensemble.

“I don’t think my daughter would be the fearless, confident, athletic girl she is today without her years of training and experience at The Actors Gymnasium. Could there be a better self-esteem booster than learning how to fly?” – Peggy N.
Early Childhood Classes (Pre-K through 2nd Grade)
Our early childhood development classes benefit kids ages 2-7. These classes help children explore their body’s capacity for movement, promote early social-emotional growth, socialization and physical development such as gross motor skills by fostering a foundation of life-long physical movement through highly interactive hands-on explorations, small group activities and facilitated engagement by parents.
Help prepare your child for the transition to Kindergarten and other structured classroom settings.

“I have been taking Imaginastics and Circus Arts for over three years. I love being active, making new friends, and learning new fun tricks each week. Ever since my mom signed me up for Imaginastics when I was in Kendergarten [sic], I get excited every week to go to class. Practicing balancing on the ball and on the silks has been so fun!” – Keira W.
