See this handy chart to learn the multiples ways to start taking classes.
- What kind of classes are available?
We have two kinds of classes:
Series Classes: These classes are 4, 6, or 8 weeks in duration and are purchased at the beginning of the allotted time frame of the class.
Curriculum Classes: These classes are taught on an on-going basis, allowing students to work through the curriculum on a single apparatus with a coach at their own pace. We encourage weekly attendance for steady progress and increased strength. Students pay for curriculum classes using class cards, which can be purchased by visiting our Payment Page.
- How much do classes cost?
Curriculum classes are paid for with class cards, which you can buy online, here. Prices of series classes are determined by the number of weeks in the series (4, 6, or 8) and can also be bought online.

- What qualifications do the teachers have? OR What about safety?
All of our teachers / coaches have taken aerial teacher training courses and have practical experience teaching. Our assistant teachers are under the supervision of lead teachers, who have taken multiple teacher training courses.
Our curriculum is developed to move students from less advanced skills to more advanced skills, gaining body awareness and strength. The emphasis on skills progression prioritizes student safety and health.
All students work with a mat under them.
- What if I am not strong enough / don’t have aerial experience / have two left feet / etc.?
We believe everyone can experience the benefits and joys of aerials and circus arts. Our studio commits to making circus arts accessible to everyone. We will work with you at your current level of fitness and help you safely build skills and strength.
