AERIAL CLASSES

All Aerial classes require Intro to Aerial Silks/Sling or Intro to Lyra as a prerequisite. You only need to take an intro class once, though you’re welcome to take it as many times as you’d like, before entering Silks 1, Aerial Sling/Hammock 1, or Lyra 1. Unless otherwise noted, all Coil classes have a minimum age of 14.

 

FOR ALL AERIAL APPARATUS CLASSES (Aerial Silks): 1) Long hair should be tied back,  2) No clothing with zippers, 3) Absolutely no jewelry should be worn on the hands, wrists or feet during class. These precautions are both for your safety and to prevent tears in our aerial silks.  Note that we reserve the right to refuse to allow a student to participate in class if they are not willing to adhere to these safety precautions.
