In April 2016, Aloft successfully purchased a 109 year old Church in the heart of one of Chicago's most vibrant neighborhoods, Logan Square. After 4 months of renovations and rigging we opened our doors almost a year to the day from going under-contract on the building.
With rigging points up to 40 ft and 6 distinct training spaces totaling 6000 square feet of workspace, Aloft is the regions premiere circus learning and training center. Our studios feature 16 adjustable height rigging points, a tramp wall, spring floor, tight-wire rigging, Chinese poles, a fully functioning kitchen, gardens and outside relaxation areas all make this studio a circus artist's dream come true.
Aloft strives to provide the highest quality training with a focus on safety and excellent technique. Some of our trainers are world-class performers who make Aloft their home base when not on a contract, and others are professionals who have made coaching their art form, guiding beginners through the steps towards making gravity irrelevant!
