Rules / Safety Guidelines


At Circus Warehouse, we strive for a safe and enjoyable workout environment and pride ourselves on our warm and generous acrobatic and aerial community. The Warehouse is a professional space and does have some constraints appropriate to the level of individual concentration and safety concerns needed for the serious athletic practitioners who train with us.

Workouts are NOT a facility rental & are scheduled at Circus Warehouse’s discretion. Times are subject to change and are not guaranteed. Please check in with the office if you are not sure about the best times for point availability. Workouts are not for commercial use or teaching. The Warehouse does not specifically rent points for workouts. If you are needing to book a rehearsal, please contact the office. You may share a workout card with your workout partner. If you are confident to work out on your own, you can pay the daily fee or buy a workout card and work around what is happening at the Warehouse.

Workout Hours

Work out hours are Monday thru Thursday, 10:00 am to 9:00 pm, Friday, 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, Saturday & Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm (subject to change without notice for shows, events and private parties). If you have a 10, 20 or 30 class card, you may workout during school hours subject to space availability. You may also purchase a single workout, or a 5, 10 or 20 workout card. You can generally just come to the Warehouse, and check in with the office or front desk for payment and availability of space. Best times are mornings and late afternoons. Worst time to find a point is 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm, when many classes are running, but there is sometimes floor space. We will always do our best to squeeze you in.I f you are not sure or you are making your first voyage to Long Island City, please call the office before you come.
