For aerial training 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 training, 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. We would also recommend removing any exposed jewelry prior to arrival at the studio. Feel free to bring any grip products you may like. Don't forget something to drink!
What should I wear? Do I need to bring anything to my session?
We currently accept students ten years of age and older for private lessons. Younger students may be accommodated on a case by case basis. Please email us for more details. Parents must accompany all minors in order to sign waivers on their behalf! If a parent or guardian cannot attend the studio in person, the waiver may be printed and signed prior to the class with pre-approval from studio management.
Are there any age restrictions?
You are required to sign our waiver to participate in any activities at Aerial Dragonfly Movement Studio. Any individual who refuses to sign a waiver will not be allowed to participate in sessions. For minors, please be aware that only a legal parent or guardian must sign on behalf of their own child. If a parent is not present, we can not legally allow the child to take part in an event or session.
Will I need to sign a waiver?
We do have an affiliate program with Vertical Art Dance so students can receive a 5% discount on equipment using our code, "aerialdragonfly-affiliate". Additionally, we request that students purchase a Rescue 8 (for Silks) or Hollow Blocks (for Hammocks) to facilitate ease of rigging for our staff. We typically recommend between 12-15 yards of fabric for aerial silks, or 7-8 yards for aerial hammocks. Please contact us at email@example.com with any rigging questions. We would be happy to advise you!
Where can I purchase my own equipment?
If you are more than 15 minutes late to your session, you will not be admitted nor will you receive a refund. If you anticipate that you will be a few minutes late to your session, please notify us via email, or contacting your instructor directly.
What if I am late to my session?
All purchases, including 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.
When does my purchase expire?
Aerial Dragonfly Movement Studio reserves the right to request a doctor's note from individuals with any current injuries or conditions that may be detrimental to their health and safety in an aerial class. Individuals may be prohibited from participating if they have any major injuries or conditions listed below:
Hernia or spinal injuires
Rotator cuff injuries
Any limitations affecting balance
Physical handicaps resulting in inability to utilize arms/legs
Pregnancy beyond the 1st trimester
Any recent surgery must be cleared by a doctor
Any recent Botox procedures (no aerial until cleared by a doctor)
Sessions 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 a session equal in value.
If the student fails to cancel/reschedule their session within 24 hours or misses their session for any reason, please note that we will not offer any refunds, as it is the responsibility of the student to manage their own registration and arrive at their session, as scheduled. All purchases are non-refundable and non-transferable. No refunds, partial refunds, credits or exchanges will be offered for any reason.
Students are able to reschedule their own appointments through our online scheduler up to 24 hours prior to the scheduled session time. Our online scheduler can be accessed by logging in to the student's account or by following the links in the confirmation email for the appointment. If, for any reason, the student is unable to reschedule their own appointment, please email us at minimum 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of the appointment. Appointments will not be rescheduled and refunds will not be provided if the request is submitted outside these parameters.
