Circus Building Entertainment at The Alley’s Studio 300 Anniversary Party

A big part of our mission is to grow the professional aerial circus community, and offer new performers and aspiring performers the opportunity to learn the business of performing while getting a foot in the door. The Alley contacted us because they wanted aerial and circus entertainment for their 1-year anniversary party, and they wanted something different from aerial silks which they had already featured at the last event. We called on several of the students in our Choreography classes for this event, and invented a new apparatus specifically to fit their theme! New Apparatus: For this event the Alley wanted Ambient Aerial Hoop, and something else different. We designed an invented apparatus that we’re calling the Wonderson Cagelier…multiple aerial hoops rigged in the shape of a cage. Invented apparatuses require much testing and practice to go live, so our founders Jordan and Clayton did the prep work and performed 4 solo and duo sets on the Cagelier. New Performers: Once an aspiring performer has successfully performed in one of our student showcases, we offer the opportunity to be part of professional gigs for those with the desire. Before a new performer gets up in the air at a gig, […]

NEW: Handstands and Acro Balance Classes

Handstand and Acro Balance are fundamental circus arts skills. They compliment aerial training perfectly, are a great workout and a lot of fun. Acro Balance Training: Jordan and Clayton were the first teachers to bring acro balance to Charleston in 2006. Acro is a fun way to get up in the air. The basics start with learning how to support another person’s weight in a counterbalance and then progress towards learning how to support each other off the ground. No partner is required and no previous experience is necessary.   Handstand Training: One of the most iconic images of strength, grace and balance is the one armed handstand. To get there, we all have to start with finding good form, body awareness, and shoulder flexibility in the basic handstand. While the road to a perfect handstand may be humbling, the reward is more than worth it. We have floors covered with 2″ foam for those concerned with falling. No experience required.   Sign up for these classes in Novemebr Classes begin Sunday, November 3rd. 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM (1 hour 15 minutes) Register Online This class is for anyone interested in developing the skills to balance their own or […]
