What time should I arrive?
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your class starts. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your class you may not be admitted as you would miss the warm up. If you arrive early, you can visit our CUBE café|bar for delicious food and drink, free Wi-fi and gallery spaces for you to browse. Please note our CUBE café|bar is not open on Mondays.
Is there car parking at Déda?
Chapel Street Car park is located directly opposite Déda. This 500-space multi-storey is reasonably priced, with evening parking for just £1.40 (parking charges apply to disabled badge holders)
Please note that there are parking restrictions on the street outside Déda and cars parked on the street may be towed.
What should I wear to a class?
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 at all times. 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. The classes are all done in bare feet.
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.
Will Aerial class get me fit?
Static Aerial or Fixed Point Ropes and Silks courses 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!
Tutors will always deliver a comprehensive warm up and cool down before and after every activity.
If you feel tired or fatigued at any time during the activity you must tell the tutor and follow their advice.
Are there risks associated with Aerial classes?
All physical activity carries an amount of risk so all classes at Déda including Aerial are assessed, then guidelines and procedures are put in place to minimise that risk. Our experienced Aerial tutors will ensure all participants have all movements explained and demonstrated before they try anything themselves and wherever possible tried at ground level before using the equipment.
Participants are only to perform moves that have been demonstrated and agreed with the tutor and are advised to hold on to the equipment at all times unless advised to do otherwise by the tutor in charge of the activity.
There will be crash mats under all equipment and gym mats around the area where the activity is taking place.
How high off the floor will I be?
Between 1 and 4 metres, dependent on experience and ability. This will be assessed by your tutor.
Do I have to be fit and healthy to take part?
To safely take part in a Static Aerial or Fixed-Point Ropes and Silks course, you must be in good health, without injury and have a good level of upper body strength. You must not take part in these classes if you are pregnant.
When doing these classes, you must take good care of your hands and feet and take proper care of any calluses and blisters that may develop over the course. Please speak to your tutor at the beginning or during the activity if you develop either of these.
