Adult Aerial Classes

Adult Aerial Classes

Our aerial arts gyms feature adult aerial classes for those who are just starting and those who have experience. We teach aerial silks, dance trapeze, lyra (hoop), sling (hammock), straps, rope, cyr wheel, aerial partnering, and more! We have apparatus specific, and mixed apparatus classes at various levels. All our adult specific classes are run in 8 week session blocks (see our reasoning for this, below! PS – you’ll get more out of it!). We have a North Denver location and a Centennial location! 

We are proud to be the only aerial studio in Denver that is Safety Recognized by the American Circus Educator’s (ACE), Safety Program. Read more about our focus on safety here.

Adult Aerial Beginner?

If you are brand new or have limited experience, please start in any of our level 1 aerial classes. These are geared towards beginners. You do not need any experience or level of fitness/flexibility to join! We work with all ages and all bodies. Aerial is for every-body! Generally, students stay in level 1 for a few sessions while they build up strength and endurance that is necessary for level 2. We have a variety of level 1 options including silks only, lyra only, and mixed apparatus. In the mixed apparatus classes you’ll learn silks, trapeze, lyra, and sling.

Have Experience?

We offer a variety of intermediate and advanced adult aerial classes (levels 2, 3, and 4). These include solo apparatuses classes in:

We also offer mixed apparatus (2 specialties) and multi-apparatus course (4 apparatuses). We are also the only aerial arts gym in Denver offering cyr wheel! We also offer non-trick based and fitness classes including contortion, aerial yoga (anti-gravity yoga), and aerial Pilates depending on coach availability. Finally, if you are interested in performing, we have an Adult only Performance Company for our Intermediate/Advanced (level 2+) students. See level prerequisites here.

Why 8 week sessions?

We teach in a progressive manner where student’s learn more, and quicker, with a group of peers! Drop in classes are difficult to maintain an appropriate curriculum that is new and challenging for everyone as there can be different people in class every week with this policy. Drop in classes? Adults are welcome to do our Saturday drop in silks class (all ages, mixed level), but being with a group of peers in a session is highly recommended if you’re interested in more quickly developing skills due to the consistency of class size and participants. Late registration in the session is available. Email us for pro-rate/availability. We also have classes for Youth, Pre-Teen, Teen, and Aerial Dance Camps.
