Welcome to Aloft

Located in a church built in 1908 in Chicago's beautiful Logan Square Neighborhood, Aloft features 6000 square feet of studio space, making it the third largest in America. Aloft provides adult neophytes (and kids, too) the opportunity to explore aerial and circus disciplines in safe, challenging, and fun classes, as well as professional performers with a training facility that meets their technical, developmental, and creative needs. Classes at Aloft will challenge you mentally, physically, and emotionally, but as you see your confidence, muscle tone, and flexibility grow, you’ll realize you’re getting a workout like you couldn’t get anywhere else! The training you’ll get at Aloft is personalized and intensive. In our small classes you’ll be in the air more than on the ground, quickly developing strength, confidence, and independence.

our values

To encourage a brave space for taking risks and challenging ourselves and others to be their best selves and supporting each person’s circus journey. This includes supporting our LGBTQIA+, Trans, and BIPOC community members and youth.

To nurture badassery by developing confidence and strength, both physical and emotional 

To be purveyors of fine circus by producing circus performances that highlight the risk and vulnerability that makes this artform vital at all of its levels of participation and enjoyment
