How much are classes?

Classes range from $7-$24, depending on the class. For a detailed list of pricing and classes offered please visit www.swift-movement.com/aerials

What should I wear for class?

Close fitting, comfortable clothing that allows full range of motion is required for all classes. Loose fitting shirts/pants or clothing with buttons and/or ties can get caught and torn on the apparatus. 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. Please remove all jewelry before attending class.

Do I need to bring anything to class?

Please bring a water bottle and small towel to wipe away sweat. And… stay hydrated!

Are there any gym RULES?

Yes, please sign into your mindbody account when you arrive to check in.

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. 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! We offer a variety of conditioning classes such as Aerial Fit Express, Aerial Fit and Flexibility, as well as our Beginner Aerial Workshops that focus on strengthening the muscles needed for aerial acrobatics. All of these classes can be tailored to fit any skill level and no aerial experience is necessary.

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!

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.

If you are not attending classes at Elevated Aerials, you must call ahead to get approval to participate in open gym. If approved, either Brittany or Jessi will meet with you during the first 10 minutes of open gym to go over policies and test your skill level.

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 info@elevated-aerials.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.
