Adult Courses

Session Courses are a great way to get plugged in with a committed group of people. By committing to a course, you are committing to seeing yourself grow as an aerialist. It takes a least once/week for 4-6 weeks to see your body change. All the better if you can come more often! Commit to progress and growth by signing up for session courses. You can also get on a monthly plan and automatically be enrolled in these courses with our most dedicated regulars.

INTRO COURSES
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. As soon as you feel comfortable and cozy, let an instructor know that you would like to join a performance course! Those courses are designed around interest, and are set to the needs of the group. When you are ready to transition into the performing track, we will help you find the best fit for your first or hundredth performance.

PERFORMANCE COURSES
We believe that through choreography, you can learn skills. 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. Not every course performs.

SOLO and DUET COACHING TIME AVAILABLE:
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) $75Purchase 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.

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. Recently, we've been playing with combining various dance styles with the sling. Come find out what's next for sling class!

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.
