We CAN swing from a trapeze and climb silks and do hand stands (we might just need some help learning the basics and getting our - ahem - more mature bodies used to the movements). The Sellam Circus School in Biddeford is just the place to learn.
The closure of Circus Maine is a real bummer. But there are still places to learn aerial silks, trapeze, and the art of handbalancing with Apparatus Dance Theater, Sellam Circus School, and The Circus Haus.
Circus Maine offers several classes for grownups: adult fitness, intro aerial fabric, tumbling, hand balancing, Chinese pole, mime, clowning, and wall trampoline.
