At Gravity Aerial Arts we work hard to cultivate an environment where everyone feels welcome!   We believe that the transfer of knowledge is best done by creating a community environment to learn and teach in.  

Our instructors are always learning new aerial skills, and the studio hosts workshops with guest instructors from across the world!  We work with the Denver circus community and the community at large to bring in new perspective and skills to our area and share these skills with students from all over.

Learning aerial circus arts is a fun way to exercise, express oneself, and get up on stage!   We strive to provide students with lots of performance opportunities.  We produce bi-annual student recitals for all of our students, and smaller in-house student showcases are in the works!  All skill levels are welcome to perform in our student recitals, as long as they have been participating in classes (or private lessons with one of our instructors) for at least two months prior to the show date announcement.

Safety is our primary concern when we are teaching new skills, and we always provide a safe progression into new and more challenging ones.  Aerial dance inherently involves a level of risk, but we work to make sure our classes are as safe as possible.  Our instructors use carefully considered teaching and spotting techniques.  Classes begin with a good warm-up to help avoid pulling/tearing muscles.  The studio is outfitted with skill cushions (mats) and the studio and instructors are insured!
