In June 2018 we opened our Leeds City Centre base located at Studio 2, Cross York Street Studios, LS2 7EE.

The space is fully equipped with a purpose built aerial rig and vinyl dance floor. We are lucky to boast a light and airy studio with a cosy waiting area and space to stretch out before and after class.

The names of those who helped us to build our studio are proudly displayed on our wall! Take a look next time you visit!


We are lucky to have lots of lovely friends across Leeds! We teach classes regularly at Yorkshire Dance, Open Source Arts and other partner venues across the City of Leeds.

In 2016 Leeds Aerial Arts joined forces with Vertical Fitness society at the University of Leeds to offer classes in Aerial Hoop and Silks to their student members. If you are a student in Leeds be sure to contact them to get involved!


Our professional and experienced instructors are always on hand to help you to reach your goals.
