FAQ

WHEN DOES MY CLASS/CLASS PACKAGE EXPIRE?

All classes, class packages or private lessons expire 4 months from the date of purchase. No refunds or exceptions will be made for purchases not utilized within 4 months.

CAN I COME TO THE INTERMEDIATE CLASSES?

The Intermediate classes are open to certain students only. If you are a beginner, you must complete beginner curriculum before moving up to the Intermediate 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 level classes. You must schedule a private lesson and test out of all required curriculum before attending any Intermediate level classes.

WHAT DO I WEAR/BRING TO CLASS?

For Aerial Silks, Aerial Hammock, Aerial Yoga, Lyra 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!

WHAT IF I AM NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO DO AERIAL/POLE?

Anyone can do Aerial or Pole! You do not currently need to have upper body or core strength to take any of our classes! Our classes are designed with individualized instruction in mind and are completely achievable for anyone, regardless of current fitness level. 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 Functional Strength Training or Aerial Conditioning classes, or consider private lessons to build strength and endurance!
