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.
For anyone who's ever watched performers gracefully climb and swing and dangle and dance on an aerial hoop or silks and thought, "holy wow, that looks amazing, I want to do it but I could never..." I say: Yes. You can. You must.
