Brighton Aerial Arts

FAQ's

Am I suitable?
Drop in classes are available for ages 16+, all genders and complete beginners (although it helps if you have a good general level of fitness). Anyone can get involved in aerial training if you're willing to put the work in and are up for a challenge!

How do I book?
All classes need to be pre booked and pre paid via the website in advance. There is a limited number of students per class in order to make sure everyone gets enough time up in the air! 


What level am I?
If you have trained aerial before and are unsure which class is suitable feel free to contact us via email. Generally speaking improvers should be able to do :straddle, hox, mermaid, gazel, amazon. Intermediates should be able to star on the bar, perform beats to sit, single leg hox & work on the top bar confidently. Advanced level should be able to perform dynamic sequences, single leg/arm work & drops (un/assisted). 

What should I bring and wear?
You will need a water bottle and yoga mat (optional) for class. It is advisable to wear fitted clothing that will not catch on the equipment. If you have sensitive skin wearing a long sleeved top and long leggings can help to minimise the equipment rubbing on the elbows, back and backs of knee's which can become sore. Some students may want to double up on their leggings. Training/grip gloves are NOT advised unless you have an open wound on your hand. We train in socks or (clean!) feet. You may wear trainers for the warm up if you choose.

 

What equipment am I using?
Classes are taught from equipment rigged on freestanding frames (max height 3.5m from top of the hoop). Each class will have 2 large A-frames and 1 small practice frame, so there will be 3 hoops available in every class. 

Can I cancel my class or course?
