To safely take part in an aerial class, you must be in good health, without injury and have a good level of upper body strength. You must not take part in aerial classes if you are pregnant.
When doing aerial classes, you must take good care of your hands and take proper care of any calluses that may develop over the course. Please speak to your tutor if you have any concerns.
Aerial classes will increase strength, stamina and flexibility as well as giving an all-round workout; especially working core and upper body muscles.
Within a few weeks you'll develop strength and muscles you never knew you had!
These classes are all done in bare feet.
You are advised to wear close fitting dance-style clothing – leggings, leotards etc. T-shirts and tight tracksuit bottoms are also suitable but your top/t-shirt must be long enough to stay tucked in when you go upside down.
Please avoid clothing with zips or button fastenings which can get caught in the equipment.
It is really important that the backs of the knees are covered.
All jewellery must be removed and any body piercings (especially those around the midriff) must be removed or taped. Long hair must be tied back safely.
2 meters maximum - there will be crash mats underneath each piece of equipment.
If guidelines are followed properly, aerial classes are no more dangerous than any other physical activity.
Our experienced tutors will ensure all participants are safe and have time to perfect moves at ground level before using the rigged equipment. There will also be crash mats under all equipment.
To ensure participants have sufficient time on each piece of equipment, we have limited our class capacities to 8 for each course.
We want everyone who takes part to be comfortable, safe and have as much attention from the tutor as possible; therefore we will not be allowing any spectators into the studio when classes are taking place.
