Our Philosophy

Community Through Circus! Here at Skytopia, we believe every body should and can have a lifetime of movement and flying. Our classes are designed to suit the abilities of anyone who walks in our door in a fun, encouraging and challenging way. Skytopia is a circus fitness school teaching in 3 locations. We love to make our students laugh while they sweat. Aerial arts can be daunting and we're here to make each and every one of our students smile along the climb up!

sierra camille

Owner and Teacher

Sierra asked to take dance classes at an age so young, she doesn't remember it happening. When she found circus arts in college, she knew she had stepped into her new home. Learning to climb silks, flip over the trapeze and get her body upside-down was a truly empowering and life changing experience. 

Gaining the necessary strength to become graceful in the air took Sierra years. Helping others to find and build this strength is joyous for her. Sierra is thrilled to build a community through Skytopia. You can check out her performance work here.

As a young adult, it was difficult to find a community of other movers, but with the rise of aerial dance and circus arts Carolina has found her folks!
