Sky Candy | Kids Out and About Austin

Sky Candy

Sky Candy is East Austin's own aerial arts studio, featuring classes, parties, camps, workshops, shows, and more for kids and adults of all ages, abilities and aspirations.

This summer, we have two programming options for your children: all-day Sky Camps and more focused morning or afternoon Summer Intensives. In our Sky Camps, attendees will get to learn skills on all four of our main aerial apparatuses: Silks, Trapeze, Sling, & Lyra, as well as other circus disciplines like juggling and tumbling. In our Summer Intensives, students can choose between Silks & Sling or Trapeze & Lyra and between morning and afternoon sessions. Both Sky Camps and Summer Intensives welcome students of all levels, including beginner. On the first day, groups will be split out by age and skill level to ensure everyone gets the most engaging experience.

Our aerial classes are designed to meet your child where they are in their physical ability and emotional maturity. We have two intro level classes which teach basic skills on either Aerial Silks and Sling or Trapeze and Lyra, in addition to other ground-based skills such as tumbling and juggling. We further split these two classes into two age ranges: our "for Youth" classes are for those in 1st-6th grade and our "for Teens" classes are for those in 7th-12th grades. These intro level classes are meant to be taken multiple times and sometimes even for multiple years as students learn to develop their motor skills and comfort in a class environment. These intro classes are:

  • Silks and Sling 1 for Youth
  • Silks and Sling 1 for Teens
  • Trapeze and Lyra 1 for Youth
  • Trapeze and Lyra 1 for Teens

For students who have successfully completed the curriculum in Lvl 1 classes and are deemed emotionally ready, we have further classes for more in-depth exploration. These classes are:

  • Silks and Sling 2 for Youth
  • Silks and Sling 2 for Teens
  • Silks and Sling 3 for Teens
  • Trapeze and Lyra 2 for Youth
  • Trapeze and Lyra - Mixed Level for Teens

We also have two drop-in classes every week: Aerial Yoga for Youth and Aerial Fit for Youth, both appropriate for all levels and for students in 1st-6th grade.
