About Our Circus Arts

Welcome to The Bird's Nest Circus Arts

The Bird’s Nest is a community space dedicated to creative play, movement, and connection. Located just outside of the growing Larkinville District of Buffalo, this facility is the first in our region to offer classes in Circus Arts that are accessible for everyone regardless of body type, age, income, or ability. From acrobatics, aerial arts, hooping, strength & flexibility training, to dance, The Bird’s Nest aims to create a safe space that promotes health through non-conventional ways of moving and collaboration.

“Several of my students have expressed finding the gym and classes to be a sanctuary where they forget about their stress for a while and can focus on something rewarding for themselves. In a nutshell, aerial hoop class is about letting yourself learn to become strong, beautiful, and confident. It’s about allowing yourself to struggle with challenges, and giving yourself permission to break your own ceiling.”

“Silks has given me a level of self confidence in my body and physical abilities that i hadn’t had before, and a wonderful sense of camaraderie with amazing supportive people who i am so very happy to call my friends.”
