“Classes at Esh have completely energized me, and taught my body things that were previously unfathomable. The technical ability, as well as the unassailable charm and excellent silk-side manner of the instructors make classes at Esh Circus Arts inspiring, exhilarating,and completely the highlight of my week.”


“Esh instructors are patient and encouraging, and keep me motivated. Their demonstrations and explanations are clear, easy to follow and shown at appropriate levels of difficulty without overwhelming.”


“Being on the silks combines the exhilaration of flying with a one-of-a-kind workout. Thanks to Esh, I have grown in both proficiency and confidence from this graceful and unique art. They are not only inspiring performers, but also passionate and patient instructors. Everyone there is incredibly motivating, and I look forward to my classes all week long!”


“I am continually impressed with the sheer volume and depth of information that the instructors have and their eagerness to share that knowledge with their students.”


“Anyone who asks me what I do for exercise and doesn’t call me a weirdo gets recommended to Esh right away.”


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.
