Sparkling Stars(Ages 2.5-4) & Fairy & Dragon Flying School (Ages 5-7)

The perfect invitation to our exclusive to pre-aerials & movement fun! A perfect sparkly class for our youngest budding aerialists. Both Sparkling Stars and Fairy & Dragon Flying School are pre-aerial classes which focus on gaining the flexibility, line, spatial awareness, and conditioning to safely fly through the air. Children will be inspired and find magical moments while preparing for our aerial program.

Classes will be filled with delightful dance and gymnastics based training exercises, games, and more. Sparkling Stars requires a parent in the room or participation in the class.

Intro to Aerials (Ages 8-11, 12+)

"When your kiddo is ready to take flight!" This class is designed for students to master the foundational techniques and knowledge of silks and lyra while also taking time to build the strength and flexibility needed to progress in the aerial arts. Students will work on the necessary fundamentals of each apparatus and learn many beautiful movements and tricks along the way. This class is offered both during the summer and during our season. All children who are beginners to aerials must take this class before entering any other aerial classes.

Silks & Lyra (Ages 8-11, 12+)

"Ready for the next steps in Aerials!" After Intro to Aerials, it's time to journey into deeper studies in the air. Working with both Silks & Lyra, students will continue their learning from Intro to Aerials and work on aerial conditioning, various climbs and descents and progressions for inverting, entry and exits into the apparatus and so much more. Students are placed in appropriate class by faculty. 2 hour classes are reserved for intermediate to advanced aerialists who are performing in Alice in Wonderland or by permission of faculty only.

Mixed Apparatus (Ages 12+ or by instructor permission)

"Ready for an advanced class to take your Star to new heights?" This class will explore apparatuses such as Static Trapeze, Corde Lisse, Spanish Web, and Aerial Curtain! This is a great addition for any children who want to get a jump on learning new skills. It's also a wonderful way to train for our Alice in Wonderland annual production!
