Vertical Fix - Pandemic Relief

Vertical Fix has been proving circus-style classes and entertainment to the Phoenix area for the past 5 years. Our mission has always been to continuously provide a safe and inclusive environment for enthusiasts and professionals to explore the beautiful art of circus. Despite the many obstacles faced this year we continue to strive to provide a space to train, connect, learn, and grow. 

Unfortunately, we exhausted our resources in the first shelter in place. With another closure ahead of us, we are in need of support to reopen, once again.  All funds raised will go towards our fixed operating costs such as rent, utilities, insurance, etc. and of course to continue to support our instructors, who have taking a big hit financially and emotionally in this pandemic. 

Anything we raise over our goal will be put towards an emergency fund for the future (we understand this is not over any time soon) as well, as improvements to the studio to create a safer training space that reduces the risk of COVID-19. Example of these items include:
- Pulleys for ease of rigging - allowing students to bring their own apparatuses and to switch out equipment for cleaning
- Regular deep cleans of the studio including our carpet bonded foam 
- Cleaning Supplies

If you are interested in other ways to support Vertical Fix and our instructors, check out our website  We will be offering online learning opportunities, private lessons both in-person and virtual, facility rentals, gift cards, and more! 

We look forward to seeing all of you again as soon as we are able to open.  

Warmest Regards,

The Vertical Fix team
