Morgan was a highly effective, incredibly fun instructor. I have been practicing with a different studio for years and have never had more fun in an intro class. I would HIGHLY recommend this studio. The staff up front is undeniably friendly and the process for getting in with them is super easy. Great experience!


What a great workout. It was a blast. My ladies and I went in with no real expectations other than bonding time. The atmosphere was very welcoming. Lot’s of sparkles. Very inclusive. Learned some pretty sexy moves. And I am sooooo sore. All in all a great workout and a great day!


All the teachers are wonderful and they make it really fun for the kids!


This was my first time and I completely enjoyed the experience. This was a birthday gift to myself. I am egar to return to master the techniques I learned. Instructor was great. Did not feel intimidated and felt her encouragement along the way.


An amazing, fun, friendly place that will put a smile on your face, give you an incredible workout, some new friends and have a blast! The instructors are the best! They accommodate all levels, enjoyable to be around and super supportive. Everything is positive at SOUL! Your mood will go through the roof after class and your confidence will grow more each class. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


Flynn Cross and the entire faculty and staff at SOUL Aerial and Performing Arts Center foster a dedicated learning environment built on professionalism and inclusion. Each student is not only valued and respected for their contribution to cirque arts, but is also mentored to be a serious student and true performer. There are few opportunities for kids today to both follow their passions and blossom into young adults, SOUL does exactly that!


Wow! What an amazing experience! Today was my first class at SOUL Aerial and Performing Arts Studio. I have already signed up for more classes! I decided to begin with Intro to Aerials, having no experience. From the check in at the studio I was warmly welcomed and invited to hang out with the rest of my classmates before the class began. Many of the fellow students were returning either having taken other classes or just getting into this one. Everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic! The instructor, Chantel, was absolutely lovely in every way. She was warm and friendly and after getting us warmed up taught us some basic aerial moves to where I felt like I had been there for awhile. An hour went by so quickly as we were constantly learning and practicing and engaging with the equipment and each other. I highly recommend this class and the entire studio to anyone looking to begin aerial arts or just something new and fun. Thank you Chantel and everyone at SOUL!


Just finished a class here that was so much fun. The owner Flynn was an awesome instructor.


The space felt clean and comfortable, and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Everyone there was welcoming and kind. Great experience.


Great studio! First time at Soul Aerial. All the staff/instructors were friendly and welcoming. Felt right at home as soon as walked through the door. I took the belly dance class Tues night with Madame Onca. She is such a good instructor, gave great feed back and one on one help when needed. I will be purchasing a multi class package so I can enjoy more belly dance!!


I took my first pole class here and absolutely loved it. The instructor was so encouraging and really took the time to help everyone out individually while still managing to teach a few different tricks. Everyone in the studio was kind and supportive. They provided you with all the equipment and techniques you need to succeed. I cannot wait for my next class!!


I have been a member at Soul for just over a year now, taking adult classes twice a week, and was a dancer for years growing up. I can confidently say that Soul is THE best studio I have stepped foot in. You immediately feel the warmth and quite literally- the soul, that Flynn has put into her studio. It translates into the type of clientele/regulars that are attracted to the studio. The people I've met here are now some of my best friends, and what I once was so nervous to join in on, now keeps me going through a tough work week. If you are considering taking a class here- do it. You will be welcomed by the most friendly group around. Flynn is SO responsive to our needs (be it billing, cancellations, inclement weather updates) I often wonder how she manages it all. The instructors are all so welcoming, talented, diverse in skill, and helpful. I've progressed in my pole journey more than I thought possible. So thankful I've found Soul!


I took an Intro to Aerials class with Chante. Chante put us all at ease as soon as we entered the studio. She interactively showed us each move, making us feel confident and safe. I can’t wait to take another class with her!


I took silks and Lyra classes at soul for two years. The instructors are amazing and everyone is extremely nice, respectful and professional. I would highly recommend anyone of any level to take classes here!


I went into the intro class with zero experience. I was surprised at how much I could learn in an hour. This is a very positive environment, there is no body judgement, you leave feeling confident and empowered! Please try it at least once!


I love Soul! Flynn is absolutely amazing with the kids. My daughter has been coming here a couple years now and she loves it so much! I was able to watch the way Flynn works with the students today for parent observation week and I’ve never seen someone work so well with a group of young kids. I also take classes and I love Ryan, Luna and Gabriella! Everyone I’ve met here is super supportive and kind.


AMAZING is an understatement! Chante was absolutely FABULOUS! This was my sister and I's first class and we didn't know what to expect. But as soon as we opened the front door, we were immediately greeted and felt at home. The lady at the front desk gathered our information and gave us a tour of the building and made us feel at ease. During our class, we were blessed with a super interactive and 'teaching' teacher. She took the time to come around and work the room working with everyone thoroughly. 11/10 recommend!


Our active, always climbing and jumping son expressed interest in dance, specifically ballet. We thought maybe an aerial class would be fun for him also, which brought us to SOUL. Ms. Flynn took the time to talk to him and hear what he wanted to do, and suggested just thr right classes for him. He is thriving and having so much fun! We can’t believe everything he has learned in two months. Flynn focuses on safety first in a very structured setting which is so important. We are very happy!


My partner and I loved our Intro to Aerial Silks class. Chante was incredibly friendly, helpful, and made us feel totally comfortable. Would definitely recommend!


Fantastic place! My family’s favorite place to be. It’s happy and welcoming. A perfect place to have fun, exercise, get physically and mentally challenged, build confidence and make new friends. The adult and kids classes are amazing with phenomenal instructors. Lots of variety offered. I love the adult silks, hoop and pole classes. My teen daughter LOVES her silks and hoop class and is always challenged and learning amazing new skills and more importantly, self confidence. My tween daughter is super happy with her hip hop class and silks class and is also building more self-esteem each week in her fabulous and supportive classes. We’re always happier after being at Soul. We welcome new friends in our classes and build each other up and cheer each other on.. Highly recommend!


10/10 recommend! I had an amazing time at my intro pole class. I felt welcomed and confident throughout the whole hour. I will definitely be coming back for more classes!


It was my first class of this type ever, and it was amazing! Hannah and Morgan were both great with pacing and explaining how it worked. Everyone was really excited and it was a judgement free zone!
