What do I wear / bring to class? We recommend wearing snug-fitting clothing that covers under your arms and the backs of your knees. Leggings, leotards, snug-fitting tees that are long enough to be tucked-in, and tights all work well. Leg warmers or tall socks are helpful to protect your feet in some instances when working on the lyra and trapeze. Clean feet and hands are much appreciated. Please do not apply strong perfume or scented body products immediately before class. Please no long nails, zippers, or anything metal or sharp that could damage our equipment. In general, jewelry is not recommended (small stud earings are OK). Long hair should be tied back in a bun or braid. Any broken skin, including scabs, must be covered completely with fresh bandage. Aerial can be quite a workout, so try to not eat two hours prior to class and make sure to bring a bottle of water. We provide dry rosin in class, but if you’re planning to play for many weeks, you may want your own spray or dry. Rosin can usually be found at sporting good stores like Dicks or Dunhams. What are the class rules? Please download, read and talk with your child about our rules for safe play prior to coming to class.
