FAQ


What do I wear to class?

For Aerial Silks, Lyra Trapeze and Acro classes please wear comfortable form fitting clothing that covers your armpits, the backs of your knees and doesn’t ride up on your belly when you hang upside down. This will help you avoid getting silk burn. Yoga pants, leggings, leotards, unitards, spandex, etc are ideal. For Pole classes, leggings or shorts and a tank top or t shirt are appropriate. Avoid clothes with zippers or buttons that can cause damage to or catch on the equipment. Feel free to bring any grip products you may like. Don’t forget water!

Can I come to the Intermediate/Advanced classes?

The Intermediate/Advanced classes are open to certain students only. If you are a beginner, you must complete beginner curriculum before moving up to the Intermediate/Advanced classes. If you are looking for a challenge or feel like you are not moving quickly enough through our beginner curriculum, please think about scheduling private lessons. They are a great way to advance quickly and get stronger!

We welcome out of town aerialists and aerialists from other studios! Please email info@aerialdragonfly.com if you are looking to test into our Intermediate/Advanced or Silks Drops classes. You must schedule a private lesson and test out of all required curriculum before attending any Intermediate/Advanced classes.

What if I am not strong enough to do aerial/pole?

Anyone can do Aerial or Pole! You do not need to have upper body or core strength to take any of our classes! Our classes are designed with individualized instruction in mind. We focus on correct form and technique as well as in-class conditioning, so our students progress safely and injury free! If you feel like you need a supplemental strength building class in addition to your regular aerial or pole classes, check out our Aerial Conditioning class or consider private lessons to build strength and endurance!

Classes are canceled when the Department of Transportation issues a “state of emergency”  or there is “severe storm warning” (ie; tornado, blizzard,etc.). Since this is considered an “Act of Nature” and is not controlled by Aerial Dragonfly Movement Studio, we will not issue refunds. We will however, issue a credit that may be used for any walk in class of your choice.
