Introduction to Aerials

This is a single class workshop for brand new beginners that introduces students to the basics on Aerial Fabric, Static Trapeze, and Lyra.

Open Practice

Open practice allows for current students to get more practice time on the equipment. This is a supervised open practice and does not have an instructor leading the class. Students must be currently enrolled in a course to participate in open practice. This is designed for students to practice what they are learning in class and is not appropriate for learning new material.
