Ring the doorbell and one of the instructors will buzz you through! Then head to Unit 34 which is in the third section of the building.
Free parking is available at the Business Centre.

What should I wear/bring to class?

✔ Close fitting, stretchy bottoms that cover the backs of your knees. Leggings are always a great option.
✔ A top that covers your midriff - something that will stay in place if you hang upside down!
✔ Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
✖ Shoes are to be left at the studio door and bare feet during class is recommended.
✖ You will need to remove all jewellery and clothing with zips must be avoided to prevent damaging the apparatus.

Do I need to be strong or flexible to join?

We get this question ALL the time and the answer is absolutely not! Whilst it will certainly help to have some strength or flexibility, it is certainly not a requirement. The beginner classes are designed for those with no experience and will guide you through the basic skills when you first start as well as body conditioning exercises. The classes may be challenging but you will notice your strength and confidence improve week by week. We have created a 3 week Intro to Aerial course so you can learn the basics of each aerial discipline, check it out here:

What can I expect in my first class?

Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your very first class so that you can meet your instructor and fill out a participation form.
Your class will start with a warm-up to increase your heart rate and get your joints moving through a range of motions. This will be followed by apparatus-specific conditioning exercises to develop your strength and prep your body for the skills you will be learning. You will then be taught how to get on and off the hoop, or basic climbs and knots on silks, followed by some simple moves. There is usually the opportunity to take some pictures near the end of the session. The class will then finish with a cool down stretch that focuses on loosening all those upper body muscles which have been working hard!

I have done some aerial classes before, which level should I join?

As a guideline, for aerial silks if you can climb and footlock in the air join Level 2. If you can also invert comfortably from a climb then join Level 3! On hoop, if you can straddle mount join level 2 and if you can single knee hang and chin up from sitting then join level 3. If you are uncertain which class is best for you then don't hesitate to drop us a message with any questions!

Do you offer kids classes?

Yes we run term-time courses for juniors ages 8-16. More information can be found on our junior aerial page:
