Unless you’ve already been doing a lot of training in another sport, expect this to take about a year – we all need to work on our strength and flexibility.

You feel much stronger and you’re actually able to bring your arms up straight by your ears! You are now comfortable on the apparatus and are ready to start more dynamic moves and sequencing skills.

SKILLED

This is for confident and competent aerialist who know their stuff, you’ve been training for about 2 to 3 years. These classes will improve your technique and help you find your own creative voice in the air. You’re now ready to start linking sequences and ready to push yourself even more and start linking dynamic skills.

Adults Classes

If you’ve ever wanted to fly, well this is your chance!

Aerial dance helps develop a strong core and overall body tone by learning different combinations of moves and athleticism while in the air. Don’t think you are strong enough? Not to worry- most people can’t climb or do a pull up when they first begin!

We offer a safe and fun environment for you to learn something new and work on skills you never knew you could do. Just come to the centre to try it out, watch others do it, or come talk to us and we’ll be happy to answer all your questions. We’re confident we can tempt you into this wonderful aerial dance community!

You should wear clothes which are comfortable and reasonably tight fitted. Leggings, joggers, t-shirts and jumpers are perfect. We don’t allow zips on clothes as they can damage our equipment. Please check your clothes for zips before attending class, especially on layers which you cannot take off such as zips on the back of leggings or joggers.

You should bring along some water to class as it is a very physical class so you will need to stay hydrated. Bring layers as the space can be cool in winter. To accommodate the height requirement we are located in a huge warehouse and it is good to stay warm during teachers demonstrations.

Workshops and Drop-In classes must be paid for in advance. Your fee secures your space, and as such we keep it for you: we do not give it to someone else. If you don’t show for a class or workshop due to illness/travel/other plans, the full-fee is forfeit.

A text is appreciated to let us know if you’re going to be late. We will ask you to do a warm up when you arrive if you have missed the warm up, to make sure you are ready to go into the air.

All classes and terms must be paid for in advance. This can be done by paying online through Bookeo, or by dropping in cash in the centre in advance. We keep our classes small, with a max ratio of 1 tutor to 9 students. Because of this we cannot facilitate swapping classes around. Similarly, if you miss a week, we cannot give you a swap class the week you’re back.

No. Beginners Aerial classes are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels and you don’t need to have any previous experience in anything before attending. It is of course helpful if you have this background as some skills transfer over to the air well but aerial is a form in itself and will be taught in a beginners class to suit the absolute beginner.

For children the term is Sept – Dec , Jan – easter holidays , end of easter holidays to June. Then Summer camps will start for 3-5weeks depends on demand.

Your child can start at any time of the term if there is space and a reduced payment will be agreed. If there is no space we will put you on a waiting list for the next term. If that class is full next term and if we have enough children on a waiting list ( at least 9) we will start a new class the next term. So tell your friends.

We take children from 4, but usually suggest they have started school first as aerial does carry some instruction, so some level of attention skills are necessary.

We do kids parties for up to 25 children age 4+. The focus is on an ‘activity party’. Children get to try out all the apparatus and do more fun based activities such as harness and free mat diving. To arrange a party please email info@irishaerialcreationcentre.com

We have 1 unisex changing area that children can get changed in and we do have a no shoes policy in the aerial training space , no food policy in the aerial training space – so children can eat food in the waiting area or in the changing room. We are not beside any shops so best to take snacks and water with you.
