I don't workout. Can I take an aerial class?
Most likely, the answer is YES! Our intro level series and classes are designed for total beginners and our teachers have years of experience working with newbies. That being said, if you have any health issues or injuries, are pregnant, or very overweight, you may want to check with your doctor before coming to aerial class.
What should I wear to aerial classes?
We recommend tight-fitting clothes (like yoga pants and leotard or tight-fitting shirt) that cover the back of your knees and your armpits. You might be going upside down, so make sure your shirt won't go upside with you! We require bare feet for most of our classes, but you are welcome to wear socks during warm-up. And please make sure to remove all jewelry, watches, and zippers before getting on our equipment so you don't damage it.
My child is interested in aerial. Where can he/she start?
We have a great kid program at High Expectations! If your child has never tried aerial before, we have a kid class that will be perfect for them. And if you have a more experienced child, we offer an ongoing series for pre-teens and teens. Check our schedule.
Is aerial safe?
Just like any physical activity, aerial arts comes with a certain degree of risk. However, we take a very proactive approach to ensuring that risk is minimized as much as possible. We purchase equipment from reputable vendors, we inspect our equipment on regular basis (you can always ask to see our equipment and inspection logs!), we utilize mats, and we train our teachers to use spotting techniques and progressions to safely work with students in the air. We also post our safety rules on our wall, require teachers to be certified in first aid and CPR, and have weekly teacher training sessions to make sure our instructors are always growing and learning.
Can I just show up for a class or series?
While you do allow drop-ins, classes and series often fill up, so we encourage you to sign-up and pay in advance to reserve your spot. You can find us on the MindBody mobile app or you can find our schedule here.
