Frequently Asked Questions

am i strong enough to take an aerial class?

Yup! We will have you start in one of the Aerial Basics Class to learn the basics and you will move up at your own pace. You can take more than one class a week if you want to breeze through or try ABC Trap first as opposed to ABC Silks if you are worried about your upper body strength.

i'm old - can i take a class?

Yup! We have students of all ages, bodies, and abilities.

i'm new - where should i start?

We require all people new to aerial to start in either the ABC (Aerial Basics Class) for Silks or Trapeze. If you are interested in Silks, take ABC Silks. If you are interested in Trapeze, Lyra, or Sling take ABC Trapeze. You do not need to take ABC if you wish to register for any of the drop in classes (handstands, stretching)

i'm not new - where should i start?

If you have previous aerial experience check out the level pre-reqs on the classes page and reach out to aloftmakeups@gmail.com with the level that you think is appropriate as well as any recent training videos. You will need approval before you can register on VAMP. We may suggest a lower level first so you can become familiar with our curriculum, but you can change levels anytime as long as there are spaces in class. 

i'm from out of town - can i drop in?

Yes, we'd love to have you take a class or private while you are in town. If you email minimum a week ahead of time with recent training videos of your experience, and the date/time of the class you wish to take, you can attend a class at the drop in rate of $43 if there is space.

what's the deal with open gym?

Typically open gyms are 2 hours on Thursday through Sunday. You have to be at or above Advanced Beginning level in the apparatus you will be training. You must be either an adult student currently in a session class, an adult student taking consistent private lessons, or have explicit instructor permission. If you are looking to join open gym from out of town, email aloftmakeups@gmail.com with videos of your experience. You do not need to bring your own equipment.
