Frequently Asked Questions
Aerial Dance is an offshoot of both Modern Dance and Aerial Arts in which dancers/artists "Take To The Sky" with the use of aerial apparatuses (e.g., Aerial Fabrics aka Silks, Aerial Hoop, Trapeze, Aerial Sling, Aerial Net, and Aerial Rope just to name a few).
You have probably heard of Cirque du Soleil, right? Or maybe you've even been lucky enough to attend a show! Aerial Dance has Cirque to thank for helping to bolster its ever-growing popularity by blending the circus, dance, and theater & performance worlds into one with their awe-inspiring and spectacular productions.
Now, Aerial Dance is popping up all over the place from TV Commercials (Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt, Residence Inn by Marriott) to the Grammys (Pink WOWS w/ her Aerial choreography), in Movies (Zookeeper) and even on Broadway (Pippin, Wicked).
So c'mon...what are you waiting for?!? Take To The Sky with us!!
We offer classes to anyone from ages 8 to 108!
2. Is there an age requirement to take aerial classes?
4. What should I wear to class?
Nope! No experience is necessary because our aerials program is progressive in nature, meaning that we start small and gradually build UP! You will build strength, agility, stamina, grace, and balance with each and every class. All you NEED is the desire to succeed and a continued commitment to your aerial training, and you'll be well on your way to becoming an aerial all-star athlete/dancer/Supah Star before you know it!

Please email or call us to schedule your session. You'll be well on your way to making your dreams of running away and joining the circus come true!! ;)

We recommend form-fitting leggings or training pants that cover the backs of your knees (e.g., yoga pants) with a leotard or bodysuit underneath and a form-fitting t-shirt over top for the additional protection it provides. If not form-fitting, then t-shirts must be long enough to tuck in.
Necklaces, rings, watches, and bracelets must be removed before class so as not to snag or get caught in the fabrics.
All hair that is long enough to swing in front of the face must be secured.
