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.
