Student policies as of August 2012
Clothing - We ask that you come to class in comfortable but snug fit clothing. Wear something that covers the back of your knees and insides of your armpits and elbows. Please do not apply lotion before or during class. No rings, dangling earrings, or jewelry should be worn during class. Shoes are not to be worn during class. When entering and exiting the facility please take extra precaution to not step on the mats with shoes
Class Attendance - All students must attend the first day of either Trapeze 1 or the Silks/Hammock classes. If you miss the first day of these classes you must wait to the start of the next month to begin taking classes or schedule a private lesson prior to the second week of class. Kids and Fitness classes may be started at any time.
Open Gym - Open gym is available to all current students. Students must be enrolled in a regular class and must attend this class at least once a month. Open gym is a time to practice skills that you have already been taught. This is not a time to teach yourself new skills or to learn from other students.
Referral - For each referral you provide (the new student pays for a 1 month of classes) you will receive a voucher for 1 free hour of open gym. You may receive up to two open gym vouchers per month for referrals and the vouchers must be used within 2 months of date of issue.
Children and Guest - Guests are welcome to come and observe class. However, we cannot allow children of students less than 12 years old to be present during a class. The instructor has the right to ask any guest seen as a distraction to the students to leave the facility.
Safety - We aim to make your experience with the aerial arts fun and enjoyable, however your safety is paramount. Students are required to have a mat under them each time their feet leave the ground. If an instructor sees a student acting any way the instructor sees as un-safe the student will be asked to stop or even leave the facility. This may include (but not limited to) such things as acting goofy, trying skills beyond the student’s current ability, or working beyond the instructors perceived point of student exhaustion.
Class Progression - The Trapeze 1, Silks Knot, over 40, and Aerial Fitness classes are open to any new student. To be eligible for a higher-level class, students must be able to perform the fitness test listed for each class. Discuss with your instructor the class progress you are interested in.
The nature of aerial performance is challenging. A mastering of the skills is required to move forward to the next level. To progress to the next level of classes a student must have their instructors permission. A fitness evaluation is developed for each level to allow the students to demonstrate they have mastered the skills.
