Absolutely! We enjoy teaching students of all skill levels, experience levels, and coordination levels. Yes, we realize you may not have been a dancer or gymnast or olympian prior to taking our class. 🙂

All of our “Intro to Aerial” classes are beginner friendly. We start learning about the aerial sling by showing you how to sit in the loop of the sling; It is a lot like sitting in a chair or on a swing. Then we show you ways to pose elegantly while you are sitting. We teach skills through progressions, and you are never forced to do a skill you are not comfortable with executing. Each apparatus is hanging above a soft mat, and you will not be asked to climb up the fabric until you are ready. If you are still nervous about trying aerial, email or call us so we can talk you into trying a class. We love beginners, and we can’t wait to get you in the air.

We aren’t going to tell you aerial is easy, but it is worth the effort!

Yes! Aerial is artistic, so we want all our aerialists to have an opportunity to perform for an audience.

At Aerial Joy we like to call our show a student showcase since most people think of recitals as being exclusively for children. We want all of our students performing-adults and youth.

More information will be shared with you about our next student showcase in class and through emails. The cost per aerialist will be shared by email, and costume fees range from $90- $275.

Yes, we do! A drop-in class is $30.

Aerialists
Tight fitting clothes are the best. Cover up! The fabric loves to eat clothes and burn skin when exposed.
  • Cover up your arm pits, midriffs, and the backs of the knees

  • Leotards are encouraged so you aren’t worried about your shirt flying over your head while you are inverted

  • Freshen up your feet and armpits before class

  • Remove all rings, watches, long artificial nails, and anything that could create holes in the fabric

  • Put your hair up. Hair should be pulled up away from the face, put in a ponytail, or a bun.

  • T-shirts and Leggings will do the job

Dancer and Acrobats
Ages 3-5

  • Wear a leotard and tight-fitting pants, leggings, or tights.
  • Wear leather or canvas ballet shoes.
  • Wear your hair up and out of your face and in a bun.
  • Bring a non-glass water bottle.
Ages 6+

  • Wear a leotard and tight-fitting pants, leggings, or tights.
  • Wear canvas or leather lyrical shoes. The dance shoe only covers the toe and ball of the foot; The heel of the foot is exposed.
  • Wear your hair in a bun with hair smoothed back (flyaways are smoothed down) and away from the face.
  • Bring a non-glass water bottle.
