“Fantastic! She was an attentive instructor and was able to clearly explain and assist everyone on each move, even though there were at least 20 people in the workshop. We did a variety of stretches and worked on handstands with partners. All in all, a really great workshop that built confidence and trust…”

“Chloe is a passionate and talented teacher. She has an excellent understanding of movement and the human body, and she used her knowledge to help me regain range of motion and flexibility in my back when I was recovering from an injury. From there, she helped me take tumbling and handbalancing to the next level! Chloe’s classes are intuitive, informative, inspiring, and fun!”

SteveCircus student, age 27

“Classes with Chloe are fun, enthusiastic, and energetic. As a personal trainer, Coach Chloe is inventive and muscle-specific.

I hate exercising, but circus-izing with Chloe puts me in a good mood. Her sunny disposition gives our class a team spirit. She is one loving, caring, and joyful teacher and circus performer who transmits her love and spirit as well as the glamor of her circus craft.

I am old enough to be Chloe’s grandmother, yet she always welcomes me to class and makes me feel good about what my aging body can do. Best of all, she has always made me feel included, even in a class in which i am, by far, the oldest.”
