Adult Courses

Courses are a great way to get plugged in with a committed group of people. Our courses can be divided into three main categories, listed below.

INTRO COURSES (Typically 4-8 weeks)
An intro course is a great way to dive into aerial at our studio. Our 4-Week course is a different apparatus each week, and provides a wonderful overview of what we offer. In our 6 or 8-week courses, you can get introduced to a particular apparatus and see if it's something you would feel comfortable on.

After taking an intro course, we first recommend repeating it! Each session is different and will allow you to continue learning. Otherwise, consider signing up for our beginning drop-in skills classes. When you are ready for the next level, your teacher will recommend you. (Level 2 students must have clean inversions.)

SKILLS COURSES (Typically 8 weeks)
Focus your grow in a particular area through skills courses. We have these for almost every apparatus and level. If you are looking to perform beyond the beginning level, start looking at Level 2 skills courses as soon as your instructor recommends that you do so.

PERFORMANCE COURSES (Typically 8 weeks)
By practicing something over and over, setting it to music, learning all the transitions, and playing with it in creative ways, you can learn something very very well! Our shows occur every Oct, Dec, Mar and May. These are a great way to be a part of our aerial family here at AerialWorks. We value the community that is built around our family-friendly, professional shows.

Currently, our beginning adult performers meet on Mondays at 6:30- 7:40pm. We alternate the apparatus. All beginners are welcome. We recommend taking at least 4 classes of any intro class first and make sure that you have enough grip strength to hold your body weight for at least 10 seconds.

SOLO and DUET COACHING TIME AVAILABLE (16 weeks minimum required to perform)
If you are interested in performing a solo or duet, please let us know. We set aside time and coaching to help you perfect your vision.

Intro-to-Aerial (4 Week Course) $85Purchase required to enroll

The perfect way to start your aerial journey. We work on a different apparatus each week: sling, fabric, trapeze and hoop, so you can get a taste for each flavor of aerial. Space is limited so make sure to sign up early!

Prerequisites: It doesn't take any strength to start aerial -- that's what we are here for, but you do have to be ready to work hard and ready to go upside-down! :)
Make sure to wear clothing that you are comfortable moving in, including leggings that covers the backs of your legs and a form-fitting shirt that will remain in-place when you flip around.

Intro Courses (8 Wks) $175Purchase required to enroll

This is a great way to learn the foundations of aerial in a small-group setting. In each course, you will get a great full-body workout as you learn skills on the aerial apparatus.

All of our apparatuses are adjustable to allow for a range of work. Skills are given in a progressive manner. You will be challenged according to your current strength-level.

Prerequisites: NONE! Come join us!

Beginning Performance (8 Week Course) $175Purchase required to enroll

Each session, we alternate between trapeze, hoop and sling to give our beginning adults a chance to put learn a group piece. Perform in one of our shows at the end of the 8 weeks!

Prerequisite: Must have at least 4 weeks of aerial experience and be able to hold your body weight in your hands (perform a straight or bent arm hold for a least 10 seconds). Must commit to the performance in the show at the end of the 8-weeks. (Typically on a Friday night 6pm & 8pm).

Level 2 Performance & Skills Courses $195Purchase required to enroll

Typically over 8-weeks, we create unique choreography using the skills that were learned in the previous skills session.

Prerequisite: Be at an intermediate level in the selected apparatus. Must have taken a skills course or have instructor approval to join.

Level 3 Performance & Skills Courses $195Purchase required to enroll

The price goes up as our advanced courses typically have only 3-4 participants who are getting specialized and individualized instruction.
Our advanced courses are for students with a large vocabulary already established and have a high degree of aerial strength established.

Prerequisites: Instructor approval. Note that you must take the skills course in the session prior to enroll in the performance course. (Or do catch-up private lessons.)

8 Week Duo Course $175Purchase required to enroll

A rare opportunity to take a duo course from a visiting guest instructor. Heather Adams loves duo work and has been exploring and performing with duo work for many years. No partner necessary. Come learn how to work with different people, basing and flying on various apparatuses.

**Special Discount** 4-Week Intro-to-Aerial $35Purchase required to enroll

Come take a discounted course as one of our teachers-in-training gets some practice teaching. Join us for the beginning aerial course and bring a friend! Should be a fun time.
No prior experience required. For older teens and adults.
