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.
Please note that we do not offer make-up classes for missed days in courses. If you have a more sporadic schedule, etc, we recommend purchasing a punch card and attending drop-in classes instead. If you would like to convert a punch card into a course, the cost is $25 and we are happy to do this for you. This allows you to make up classes in that course.

INTRO COURSES (Typically 4-6 weeks)
An intro course is a great way to dive into aerial at our studio. You can get introduced to a particular apparatus and see if it's something you would feel comfortable on. After taking an intro course, consider signing up for our beginning drop-in skills classes.

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 the aerial family here at AerialWorks. We value the community that is built around our family-friendly, professional shows.

SKILLS COURSES (Typically 8 weeks)
Typically skills courses are the prerequisites for getting into the upper-level performance courses. It is helpful to work on skills for a session prior to putting together a piece of choreography and the skills courses allow you to focus on that.

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 (6-Wks) $135Purchase 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!

Skills Courses $175Purchase required to enroll

Take your aerial skill set to the next level with these courses. Click to see the variety of courses offered. Note that many come before performance courses, and you must take the skills course in order to get into the performance course.

Beginning Sling Performance (8 Week Course) $160Purchase required to enroll

Sling can be the most versatile apparatus to perform on. It lends itself to a very dancy style and we take advantage by applying different dance styles each new session. Come find out what's next for sling class!

Prerequisite: Must have at least 4 weeks of aerial experience plus instructor approval. 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.)

Duet or Solo Performance $360Purchase required to enroll

A very special time to work on a piece uniquely designed for you! These slots fill fast, so let us know if you are interested in starting a solo or duet track. We require each piece to be in progress for a minimum of 2 8-Week Sessions. This means either (1) you sign up for two 8-week sessions, or (2) you already have a piece done, you audition it and sign up for one 8-week session in order to perfect your piece with one of our coaches. Some of our solos go to competitions around the country -- let us know if you are interested in this and we will connect you in the right time slot.

We expect all solo/duet performers to be at a high level of work, you must have experience on their apparatus of choice, and continue to take regular classes outside of your solo/duet coaching time.

Student Photoshoot $65Purchase required to enroll

Each hour is shared with 2-3 other students. You will take turns on the apparatus, giving each other ideas as well a our photographers giving input as to what to do. You are welcome to participate even if you are new to an apparatus. (But you must have at least 4 classes of aerial under your belt to participate in general.) This is a great way to mark this time in your aerial journey. Many of our students enjoy comparing where they were at each photoshoot, watching their progress.

Wear your make-up and wear whatever you'd like! Keep in mind you will have a white background. Bright colors or crazy costumes are welcome, but it's totally up to you! You will have time to change clothes during the photoshoot, so bring some options!

Photos will be e-mailed to you in the weeks following the photoshoot. You can expect to get ~5 digital photos that are print-ready for you to do whatever you want with.
