Editorial Review of Aloft Loft

Wish you could fly? Aloft Aerial Dance's personal home base is the premiere aerial arts training facility in the Midwest. Open to circus-arts enthusiasts of all levels, Aloft Loft provides training and resources for advanced artists as well as beginners who long for a taste of the magic.

The lofty gym is a versatile practice and performance space featuring adjustable and quick rigging points, static rigging points, two vertical dance walls (one for bouldering and one for harness/rappelling work), ground work space and a circus/aerial library and resource center. Approved intermediate, advanced and professional aerialists, acrobats, clowns and performers can use the Aloft Loft as their personal training center for a monthly membership fee of $150.

Or sign up for classes on a month-to-month basis (fees run $75-$175). Take your pick from a lineup that ranges from introductory courses and conditioning to Spanish Web and an intriguing combo called "Ropes, Harnesses and Bungees!" Most weekday classes take place in the evenings after 6 p.m. Some classes require prerequisite beginner courses, and all students are required to pay a $30 annual membership fee.

For those just testing the waters, Aloft Loft offers a variety of fun workshops like Four Days of Hula Hooping with Aussie champ Lizzy Gifford ($125) and Two-Day Beginning Trapeze ($65). Give it a shot...according to the regulars, learn to fly once and you'll never look down again.
