Beyond Beginners Aerial Circus Session

Beyond Beginners Aerial Circus Session


Beyond Beginners Aerial Circus Arts for our continuing adult students or by special permission is a 7-week Session. It runs Thursdays from 7 - 8:20 p.m. from 11/1 - 12/20 with no class on Thanksgiving. Session-only registration, no make ups or drop ins.

Instructor: Melinda Pavlata, with Sacha Pavlata and Zoë Heywood. Limited space is available.

Please be on time to class. You can arrive 10 minutes early. Warm up is very important for injury prevention in aerials.

This class is geared to beginner aerialists with some experience and will continue to focus on building strength in the foundational skills of aerial arts. Students will practice tricks and transitions with an eye toward grace and clean technique in the air. Students will be able to learn and practice basics on all the aerial equipment in the studio: from aerial fabric to static trapeze. Conditioning exercises will be provided for homework.

What to wear: Ideally, footless leggings that cover the backs of the knees and a leotard. If you wear a tank top, make sure it is form fitting. Loose clothing is distracting and can therefore be dangerous when you go upside-down. Leggings are to cover the backs of the knees in order to prevent chaffing. Long hair should be pulled back, toe nails clipped to protect the aerial fabrics and no jewelry is allowed on the equipment. Bring your own water bottle if you can. We do have filtered drinking water at our little sink to refill.
