Adults FAQs (12)
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. There are no refunds once a booking is made through bookeo.
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.
Yes, we also do bespoke workshops for different groups of 6 or more. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to start organising a workshop.

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 email@example.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.
