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.

Our aerial classes are designed to meet your child where they are in their physical ability and emotional maturity. We have several intro level classes which teach basic skills on different combinations of Silks, Sling, Trapeze, & Lyra, in addition to other ground-based skills such as tumbling and juggling. We further split these two classes into three age ranges: our Aerial Beginnings class is for 5-7 years old, 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:

  • Aerial Beginnings
  • Silks 1 for Youth
  • Sling 1 for Youth
  • 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 2/3 for Teens
  • Silks and Sling 3 for Teens
  • Trapeze and Lyra 2 for Youth

We also have Intro to Aerials drop-in classes every week, for both Youth and for Teens, and Guided Youth Practice Time which lets youth and teen students practice their skills learned in class under the supervision of one of our instructors.

Next summer, we have two programming options for your children: both all-day and half-day Sky Camps. Sky Camps run M-F and half day camps have both morning and afternoon options. 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. Sky Camps 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.
