Each class is designed to provide the necessary tools for advancement. Students train at their designated level until they can perform the skills and sequences necessary to move up. Our pre-beginners and beginners start at Mini’s, Level 1 and 2. Every student progresses at their own pace and we encourage a team work environment at all times. Our instructors understand the many factors considered for advancement. Age, focus, strength, coordination, endurance, and previous training in like sports such as dance or gymnastics. We work hard to provide a classes that are filled with fun and education that adheres to our policy of safety first. Our awareness of fun, fitness and fundamentals is what empowers our students to advance safely. Patience will help you understand your young aerialist. Aerial Arts is both challenging and rewarding.  We recommend advancement only when the student is physically and emotionally ready to meet the demands of the next level.
