Bowties and Blue

Aerialist duo based in Queens, NY.

We have a researched-backed, holistic approach to circus; performing sustainably at the highest levels and moving the soul of our audience

Our Classes

We offer private classes in aerial training, where all levels are welcome. We train both recreational and professional artists in straps, pole, handstands, silks, conditioning, mobility, and more. If you’re a total beginner, then we offer basic classes to help you find the confidence you need to get to know your body.

We are committed to best practices of coaching, inspiring students to reach their highest potential without injury.

Our Mission

We are committed to a more just world, and donate 10% of all our proceeds to organizations that promote justice in the circus arts.
