about us

Expression arts is a center for the development of creative performers. We take a holistic approach to circus arts instruction by fostering physical abilities such as strength and flexibility as well as creative abilities such as musicality and choreographing. We believe in listening to our bodies and working with them to achieve feats of athletic art. 

Expression arts is separated into several programs or tracks so you can decide what is the best fit for you. Our Complete Training Program will provide a thorough development of skills from aerial silk to professional development to choreography to contortion. The Circus Performance - Gig Track exposes students to the world of professional circus gigging and the Circus Performance - Troupe Track track exposes students to the world of performing in a circus troupe to prep for careers like Cirque Du Soleil!
