Workshops 2022

We have brought back our monthly series of workshops to help everyone get in more circus. And we would love to hear what you want to train in so we can bring you the workshops you want the most. The Last Carnival is partnering with Climb Lawrence for a monthly aerial silks workshop.

There are 7 foundational moves in aerial silks. In this workshop we will begin to cover those on the ground and in the air and find some fun poses and movements along the way. Aerial Silks is a fun way to get your fitness in, while challenging your mind at the same time as we learn how to create knots safely around our bodies. This workshop is for all levels.
Progressions will be given for intermediate and advanced students.
Sign ups for this event are through Climb Lawrence, where the workshops will be held.

There will class sessions running month to month for now. 

Please be registered at least a week prior to your class to make sure you will be able to participate in the session. Current students’ class spots will be held from month to month. Please let us know if you do not plan to continue classes so we can open that spot for other students. Just a reminder that to have a make up class you must give us at least 24 hours notice that you will be missing class so that we may contact students on the waitlists to try to fill that spot. If you cannot attend regularly, consider signing up as a drop-in student.

In-Person Training Options :

If you don’t see a class option on our calendar, it is most likely available in private lessons. Currently we offer weekly classes in aerial silks, hammock, fly fitness, aerial hoop, trapeze, and aerial yoga. Those classes are appropraite for teen & adult students. Wanting to get your kids interested in alternative forms of fitness? Circus arts is great for kids who don’t fit into the traditional sports mold to find a way to stay active, have fun, build confidence, and socialize with other kids. We offer mixed circus arts classes (carny class) for kids ages 6-12 and have a teen class for ages 12-17, as well.
