Cirque Indy was established in 2012 by Mary Brumbaugh. Eager to meet the demand for fun, safe and quality aerial silks and aerial fitness instruction, Cirque Indy moved to a new facility in November of 2013. Cirque Indy provides group classes and private instruction in various disciplines, including aerial silk, rope, static trapeze, aerial hoop, flexibility, acrobatics, general fitness and yoga to students in the Indianapolis area.
Come join the circus! Students at Cirque Indy discover their potential. You can expect to learn fantastic aerial skills while also building an amazingly strong body, self-confidence, communication skills, and of course, friendships. Prepare to be a part of something wholly new and love doing it!
Our mission is to provide high quality aerial instruction at the beginner and intermediate levels in a safe, supportive, and fun environment and to promote community and collaboration in the movement arts among athletes and artists and across disciplines.
