Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do parties?

Yes we do parties! Click on PARTIES above. 

 

Is there an age or weight limit?

There is no weight limit, but we do require students to be at least 4 years old.

Anyone under 18 years of age must arrive to their first class with a parent or guardian to sign a waiver.

 

What should I wear and bring to class?

We recommend bringing a water bottle and wearing close-fitting workout clothes for class. If you forget your water bottle, we have official ADPC ones for sale. Do not apply lotion or oils prior to class. Absolutely no jewelry or shoes are allowed on the apparatus, and we recommend you leave your jewelry safely at home, as ADPC is not responsible for lost valuables. We have cubbies in which students may store their belongings while in class.

 

What are the class sizes?

Our maximum class size for all aerial classes is 6 people. Class time is spent both trying out the

moves yourself and watching others so that you are able to observe form and technique.

 

What is your refund policy?

Except in the most extenuating of circumstances, we cannot offer refunds for any of our classes. In cases where students have given us sufficient notice (24 hours +), we can offer an account credit for the amount paid that can be applied to future classes.

 

How far in advance should I sign up for class?

It is best to register as far in advance as possible, to ensure that you have the spot you want. Some of our classes get booked up a week in advance. Class registration closes 1 hour before class.

Pre-registration is required to attend a class.

Pre-registration is easy. You can sign up online or message, call, email, or text us at

(850) 630-9229 or aerialdancepc@gmail.com

 

Where can I practice after I take a class?

We offer “Open Studio” classes where students can practice the moves they have learned in class, supervised by an instructor. These classes are included for free with all of our class packages, or they can be purchased per session. Pre-Registration is required. Open Studio is intended to be a forum for students to practice only what they have learned in class; not a free-for-all where they can attempt skills they have seen on YouTube. Open Studio attendees who attempt moves not taught by Aerial Dance PC or who attempt to teach other students new moves will be asked to leave the session.

 

What are the risks of Aerial Dance?

Aerial Dance is a potentially dangerous activity involving acrobatic work at various heights. The most common injuries are overuse injuries of shoulders and back, pulled muscles, bruises,  fabric-burns, and dizziness/nausea (from upside-down or spinning). Possible risks include but are not limited to sprains, broken bones, paralysis or death. Students agree to

participate at their own risk.

 

What safety measures do you take?

Aerial Dance PC takes your safety very seriously. Our Trainers has been through a rigorous aerial arts teacher certification at either the New England Center for Circus Arts Nimble Arts or Circus Arts Institute . All of our trainers are CPR certified and have completed an Aerial Dance Teacher Certification Programs that focuses on instruction and spotting techniques.

All of our aerial equipment is rated at a minimum of 2,500 lbs. and is regularly inspected and maintained to ensure it is clean

and in good repair. 

 

Who should NOT practice aerial?

People who are currently or have previously experienced the following conditions should NOT practice Aerial: glaucoma, heart disease or heart conditions of any kind, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, high/low blood pressure, neck/spinal problems, or any pressure-related issues.

Studio Rules

​The following guidelines have been put into effect by Aerial Dance PC (ADPC) in order to protect the safety of its students and instructors. ADPC asks that you read and respectfully adhere to all studio policies. Students who disobey these policies may be asked to leave class, and frequent violators may be banned from the studio.

​​Every student is required to sign a liability waiver prior to the start of class.

​​​​Please do not walk on mats or equipment while wearing shoes, and do not wear any jewelry on the apparatus.

 

​ADPC insists on a mastery of basic skills before progression to skills requiring more strength, endurance, and understanding. Students must strictly adhere to the level progression and may not learn or practice skills above their skill level (as judged by the instructor). Students must be able to execute a pose or sequence with strength, control, and proper body positioning before progressing to a more difficult skill.

​​

 

No drops are allowed without the express permission and direct supervision of an instructor qualified to safely guide the student through the drop.

 

Students must obtain instructor approval before practicing skills that were not taught to them by Aerial Dance PC, and this may only be done during a private lesson.

 

Students are not allowed, under any circumstances, to teach anyone else any movement, pose, sequence, or skill. This is known as skill-trading or skill-sharing, and is strictly prohibited.

 

Students are not allowed to practice anything they have not learned at ADPC. If a student wants to learn a skill that they have seen online, they can email a link to aerialdancepc@gmail.com and request that their instructor teach the skill during class or in a private lesson. The instructor will evaluate whether the skill is appropriate for the student’s level, and will teach it accordingly. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LEARN TRICKS FROM YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK, OR ANY OTHER SOURCE!

 

Our studio has strict rules against self-rigging. Students who wish to rig their own apparatus must show proof of proper insurance and rigging for the protection of the studio.
