Aerial Arts of Rochester is co-owned by aerial partners and husband/wife team, Jennifer and William D’Ovidio.
Since Opening in 2010, the school has blossomed into a community sharing a passion and respect for all things circus.
Aerial Arts is a safe place where creativity can flourish. Providing an encouraging and supportive environment where students can grow at their own pace is how we approach our training. We believe that everyone can and should fly if they so desire. We will help you on your journey from the ground, up - literally!
Although a recreational school, we have the skills to develop athletes and artists who wish to pursue careers in the industry. We are primarily an alternative fitness facility, however we are also a performance arts venue, where both youth and adults have the opportunity to perform in showcases and themed productions.
Currently Aerial Arts of Rochester offers introductory workshops, session courses, specialty workshops and camps in addition to children’s birthday parties, school field trips and team building opportunities.
We are also home to the The UP! State Cirque Performance Troupe that is available for hire in the WNY region. AAOR has a team of instructors all with impressive lists of accomplishments and unique talents that they bring to the school. We continually seek out opportunities to help us grow as aerialists and instructors.
