About our facility

Our location on The Hill offers the best of an industrial space, set within a welcoming residential and destination neighborhood. St. Louis Aerial Collective is within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Our historic building was originally a stable housing the mules and ponies who worked in the clay mines that supplied the brick factories that helped build St. Louis. The masonry building was reinforced with steel beams when the original hayloft was removed, creating the high ceilings and the structural support that make our location an ideal circus and performance space.

Our studio is available for private parties, photoshoots and as a performance venue. Please email us for inquiries.
