What should I wear for class?
Close fitting, comfortable clothing that allows full range of motion is required for all classes. It is recommended that your clothing cover the armpits, knees and waist, as the apparatus can rub and leave burn marks in these areas.
Clothing with zippers, rivets, velcro or metal parts of any kind are strictly prohibited, as they can damage the apparatus. Loose fitting shirts/pants, clothing with buttons or ties are not recommended as they can get caught and/or torn on the apparatus.
Please remove all jewelry before attending class.
Do I need to bring anything to class?
Please bring a water bottle and a small towel to wipe away sweat. And… stay hydrated!
Are there any gym RULES?
Yes, please be sure to register for classes ahead of time as we do not accept walk-ins. Remember to fill out our online waiver before you arrive for class. You’ll find this in your account when you register for classes or it will be emailed to you.
When you arrive for class, please check in at the front desk or with an Elevated Aerials instructor.
Be sure to warm up and stretch properly before training. It is important to listen to your own body. Do not push yourself past your personal limits and risk injury. Progress will come with safe and responsible practice. On the same token, be sure to bring a water bottle and STAY HYDRATED!

Please exhibit good personal hygiene out of respect for the apparatus and your fellow students. Bring a small towel to wipe any excess perspiration that may occur during class time.
Please no food or gum in the aerial area.
Absolutely no drug or alcohol use prior to aerial activity.
Please do not videotape the instructors or your fellow students without permission. If you need to remember a trick, drop or wrap, you may take a video of yourself after you have properly learned the skill.
Are there age restrictions?
We teach ages 12 and up. With doctor approval – You’re never too old to try aerials!
What if I’m not strong enough?
That’s why you come to aerial class! Currently we offer Cirque-it Fitness classes that focus on strengthening the muscles needed for aerial acrobatics. This class is tailored to fit ANY skill level and NO experience is necessary! Click here to register.
Are there any rules for OPEN GYM?
All General Rules apply at Open Gym! Please warm up properly, share the equipment, keep a mat under your apparatus at all times, be respectful and stay hydrated!
Open Gym is for our students to work on the skills they’ve learned in class. If you are not currently attending classes at Elevated Aerials, you must call/email ahead of time to get approval to participate in open gym. If approved, an Elevated Aerials staff member will meet with you during the first 10 minutes of open gym to go over policies and test your skill level.
Instructors are NOT at open gym to teach. If you are unsure of a skill, please wait and ask in class later. You are only allowed to use equipment that you have been trained on by an instructor, and only at heights for which you have been approved.
Please, no student coaching. Students may not teach other students any trick, drop or wrap during open gym. Please refrain from teaching yourself new skills from YouTube or any other video. This can be extremely dangerous. If you are interested in learning a specific trick in a video, you may email it to us at email@example.com and we will evaluate whether or not it is appropriate for your skill level. You may then schedule a private lesson or we may be able to teach it in a future class.
Pictures and videos are permitted and encouraged! However, please be respectful of your fellow aerial buddies, as they may not want to be the background star of your video… If others are in your view point, please ask permission, move the camera for a different angle, or just wait until they’re no longer in view.
Don’t forget to have fun and tag us on Facebook and Instagram! @elevatedaerials513
I have aerial experience but… what level am I?
We do skill tests during the first 10 minutes of Open Gym. If you’d like to test your skills, please register for one of our Open Gyms here. Please notify the instructor on duty that this is your first visit with us and that you would like to see what level you are at. After we assess your skill level we will help you get set up for classes that would best suit your needs.
I do not have any experience… any classes for beginners?
Yes! We have tons of classes for new students. Currently we offer three Intro to Aerials classes. These are the perfect classes to come and give aerials a try! The classes are meant for complete beginners, learning the basics while working low to the ground. We teach three separate apparatuses at Elevated Aerials: Silks, Sling & Lyra. We highly suggest giving them all a try. Intro classes are a great way to start your aerial journey! For a full list of classes offered and to register please click here.
Are men allowed to take aerial classes?
Yessss!! We love teaching ALL genders… aerials is not just for women. We encourage everyone to give it a try!
