Big Changes!
Goodbye first Madison Circus Space! You have served us so well!

Goodbye first Madison Circus Space! You have served us so well!

Swing State Aerial is making some big changes this year! In addition to bringing on two new teachers and Stephanie starting to teach as well, saying a fond goodbye to Karen as she focuses on other elements of circus work (aerialists with prior training can still take cloud swing lessons from her!), we are also going to be moving around a lot in the coming year. 

As many of our students and followers are aware, Madison Circus Space, our class location and home base, is a part of the big redevelopment project on the 2100 Winnebago Block. MCS is rebuilding in a slightly different location, along with CoHo Madison's cooperative housing and arts space. We are so excited for a bigger, custom-built MCS!! If you are excited too, please help out the MCS Capital Campaign with a donation or pledge (there's a big matching campaign on as well - right now you double your dollars!)

In the meantime, as the current buildings come down over the summer, we will be relocating in a number of ways. Firstly, MCS will have a temporary space (still to be finalized, but likely a location not far away just off Milwaukee Street), Swing State is looking for other spaces that can host us, and we are planning on a purchase of a portable aerial rig for outdoor classes and practice time. 

Mackenzie is also attending an aerial retreat with Paper Doll Militia in May, which will put silks classes on hold for a few weeks!

Swing State Aerial will have very limited room for beginning or new students until late May or June this year, but look for new sessions from us this summer when we've gotten settled in new places and new routines!  In the meantime, please contact us if you'd like to be on a waitlist for a first chance at spots in classes that open up this summer. 

Happy flying, and have an excellent spring!

New Beginner Silks Series Starting November 5 AND New Trapeze Classes!!

A new introductory 6-week small-group session for beginning silks will start on November 5, 2017. Classes will meet on Sundays from 1-2 pm running through December 17, 2017. (No class on Nov. 26).

This class series will address fundamental silks skills of climbing, locks, and balances. You don't need to be strong or fit to start!  Small-group classes will move at the pace of the students and focus on developing technique and strength as we go. (But you will get a picture of yourself looking badass during every class if you want one!)

In even bigger news, Swing State Aerial will soon be offering private lessons and small group classes in dance trapeze! We are excited to welcome our friend Isis to Swing State Aerial. Isis is an incredibly strong and beautiful aerialist, with in-depth knowledge of the mechanics of human bodies and an inclusive approach to teaching. Trapeze classes will begin sometime around the new year - please email us if you'd like to get on a waiting list!

Email us or fill out our registration form to sign up - space is limited to 6 students at maximum, so don't wait!

We can't wait to fly with you!

New Year's Resolutions are almost here!

Losing weight and getting fit are two of the most common resolutions! Are they yours? What about getting over a fear of heights? Being more creative? Being a badass? Making new friends? Connecting to a new community? Trying something new? Trying something scary? Just getting more active? 

Swing State Aerial can help you with any of these, and more!  Just email us or use our Contact Us form to inquire about the most fun you'll ever have while working out!
