FAQ

What is Aerial Dance?

Aerial Dance is a circus art most notably seen in Cirque Du Soleil. From apparatuses that hang from the ceiling, aerialists perform beautiful climbs, wraps and other amazing acts while suspended from the air.

Is aerial safe? 

Aerial is a high risk activity, all students should thoroughly read risks involved with aerial.

We take safety very serious at SRB Aerial Arts, all equipment is rated 2500lbs + and 8 inch crash mats are used.  Students should never practice aerial without a mat or without supervision. We teach students aerial safety and proper technique to safely execute moves. Teachers are highly qualified, certified and trained to safely spot students. With all safety precautions in mind, students should always be aware of body during practice and should stop if they are injured, tired, dizzy or unable to continue. Common minor injuries caused by aerial are skin abrasions, fabric burns, bruising, pinching, pulled or strained muscles. Other injuries could include and are not limited to sprains, separations, fractures, broken bones, head injuries, full or partial paralysis or fatality. Students agree to participate at their own risk. 

Is there a weight limit?

NO, our equipment is rated 2500+ lbs. 

What should I wear?

Tight fitting clothes are suggested for all aerial classes. For silks classes and suspended apparatus classes you should wear clothing to prevent abrasions - leggings or tights that cover down to the back of the knees and shirts that cover the torso. In pole we suggest you wear shorts and a sports bra.

Is this aerial yoga?

We do not offer aerial yoga. Aerial dance classes are very different from aerial yoga. Aerial yoga has a much lower risk factor.

How many people can attend class?

We allow 6 people per group class. Private parties are available for groups of 6+

Do you host private parties?

Yes! Parties must be booked in advance and depend on availability. The further in advance you book the better! Please contact us for more info - srbaerialarts@gmail.com / 850-867-3608. A down payment may be required to book.

I have taken aerial before, do I have to take Intro to Aerial?

We can evaluate students prior to attending class. Students from other aerial studios may contact owner prior to attending classes for approval to waive beginner aerial class requirement. 

How far in advance should I book?

It is suggested that you book as far in advance as possible, classes can fill quickly. Reserve your spot by booking online, calling, messaging or emailing us.

How do I move up in class level?

Student must meet a specific criteria to level up in an apparatus. We believe that proper strength and technique is extremely important to safely execute inversion moves, wraps, drops and certain poses. Student must be invited to higher level class prior to attending it.

How often do I need to come to get better faster?

Everyone learns at their own pace but for beginners eager to learn fast, we suggest you come as often as possible. We have unlimited memberships and multi-class packages. Like anything else the more you do it the better you will get.
