We’re open!

Hello Esh community!

We are open for adult and youth programming both in-person and online! Please visit the Schedule & Registration Page for class schedules and sign-up information for in-person and online classes. You can also schedule private lessons by submitting a private lesson request form.

Many things about our day-to-day operations at Esh are different than they were before, but our commitment to world-class circus instruction in a welcoming space remains. We are excited to welcome you back and learn together in our new circumstances.

We know that we cannot fully eliminate the risk of COVID-19, and that the danger posed by this pandemic is still present. Our goal in responding to COVID-19 is to take as many harm reduction and risk mitigation measures as we can, communicate clearly about our policies and procedures, and support the members of our staff and community in making the best choices for themselves about returning to circus. We invite you to review our COVID-19 Response Plan, and to reach out to us at info@eshcircusarts.com with any questions.

All the best,
Ellen, Roger, and the team at Esh

I visited Esh for my first trapeze/hoop class last night, and it is amazing. In an hour and a half I learned a knee hang, a sit, and three tricks. If you’ve been thinking about trying an aerials class I highly recommend Esh. The instruction and customer service are top-notch!

I have been taking aerial silks classes at Esh since 2010, and it has been one of the most rewarding activities I’ve done. Every teacher I’ve had there has been capable, careful, adaptable, funny, and encouraging. The whole Esh community is incredibly supportive and inspiring.

Aerial acrobatics are mentally engaging, creatively freeing, and a fantastic way to trick yourself into going to the gym every week! On top of that, the whole Esh community is incredibly supportive and inspiring. I recommend Esh to people of all ages, backgrounds, and body types with no hesitation.
