Hooping is a circus-inspired fitness class combining an adult-sized hula hoop, simple “tricks” and creative body movement, plus playlists to put you in the mood to DANCE! Even if you “don’t dance” or “couldn’t hula hoop as a kid,” you will dominate that hoop and floor space in your own way by the end of class. As practice makes progress, I will give you new moves and combos to work into your vocabulary. Be prepared to laugh and sweat your way to dance floor stardom. All levels are welcome!
Build hand-eye coordination, self-confidence, and teamwork skills in a low-pressure juggling class. Whether you’re a first-time juggler or looking to improve your skill set, this is a perfect place to get started.
It may look like an over-sized yo-yo, but this beautiful 4,000-year-old art form is much more than that. Learning the basics is simple, but the possibilities are endless.
A mesmerizing off-shoot of traditional juggling, contact juggling uses a single crystal ball rolled across the hands, arms, and whole body in unbelievable ways.
Cyr Wheel lessons are available as a private or semi-private lesson (up to 3 people). Cyr Wheel (roue Cyr) is one of the hottest circus acts right now. Standing in a custom-built steel ring, you will learn to balance, waltz, spin, and manipulate the wheel through various drills and exercises. As progression is an individual experience, new moves and drills will be introduced on an individual level. This means you can share a lesson with a friend but do not have to be able to do the same tricks! Barefeet or lightweight acrobatic shoes are recommended for this class. Kristen Leophard is the first professionally trained Cyr artist in Middle Tennessee, debuting her Cyr act at the Nashville Sideshow Fringe Festival in August 2014 after graduating from the New England Center for Circus Arts in May 2014.
