Hello Esh community! We are reopening for adult circus training on Monday July 20th!
The City of Somerville is beginning Phase 3 of the economic reopening on Monday July 20th. Under Phase 3, Esh can offer adult recreational programming! Sign up here for small group classes and individual practice time July 20th – July 26th. We will be extending the in-person schedule beyond July 26th soon, so please check back!
We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to the studio and spending some time upside down! We know that we cannot fully eliminate the risk of COVID-19 from our studio, and that the danger from this pandemic is still present. We have worked hard to reduce the risk to our staff and students as much as possible, and to make Esh as safe as it can be. In circus we often talk about risk mitigation. Our goal in responding to COVID-19 is to take as many harm reduction and risk mitigation measures as we can, communicate clearly about these new policies and procedures, and support the members of our staff and community in making the best choices for themselves about when is the best time to return to circus. We invite you to review our COVID-19 Response Plan, and to reach out to us at email@example.com with any questions about returning to circus in person.
As we enter Phase 3, we are continuing to offer online classes. Esh coaches will continue to teach flexibility, contortion, handstands, juggling, ballet barre, dance, and some conditioning classes online for quite a while, so you can continue with online circus if that is the right choice for you! Our community is greater than our physical space and we love seeing our students in the virtual classroom.
For those returning to in-person classes: Many things about our day-to-day operations at Esh will be different than they were before, but our commitment to offering world-class circus instruction in a welcoming space remains. We are excited to welcome you back and learn together how we can teach and learn circus in our new circumstances.
As always, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Ellen, Roger, and the team at Esh
