Think “circus” and you may think of clowns, trapeze, and people twisting like pretzels. But the big tent of “circus arts” covers many disciplines that make for exciting, athletic, and creative ways to get fit and develop new skills. Kinetic Arts Center, on the corner of Seventh and Brush streets in West Oakland, offers adult fitness classes (as well as kids’ classes and performance programs) such as Rope & Tissue, Aerial Hoop, Contortion & Flexibility, Pole Fit & Play—and of course, Trapeze and Clowning. The instructors come to Kinetic Arts with stellar credentials and inspire all ages and ability levels. If you can’t stand the gym, then run away to Kinetic Arts.
