During your 10 week beginner class you will learn the fundamentals and basic skills on your new apparatus!

Our professional, nurturing team have all been trained under Aerial Artistry®'s exceptional instructor training program, to ensure a consistently outstanding learning experience for all students.

No aerial, gymnastics or dance experience is necessary at all, as a beginner student in our programs.

The only requirements to start are:

  • Ability to hang straight and hold your body weight from a bar

  • Ability to hold a strong "plank" position on the floor

  • Willingness to try new things with a group of awesome, new people!

Aerials will increase strength, fitness, flexibility and fun in your life - guaranteed!

Beginner - Prep 1

Students work their way through these classes over one x 10 week term.

If you are joining in Term 1 or 3 you will move from Beginner to Level 1. If you join in Term 2 or 4 you will move into Prep as these are our Showcase Terms! So we will be prepping you for your first aerial showcase as we continue you on with skill learning. (Showcases are not compulsory, but are a lot of fun!)

Level 1-5

Students will be in each level for a total of two terms, unless advised otherwise by their instructor.

New, progressive skills are learnt throughout each term as your strength and aerial awareness increases!

Weeks 5-10 of Terms 2 & 4 are focused more specifically on learning a routine for the upcoming showcase.

Intermediate Recreational & Advanced Recreational 

Now you're a master at all aerial fundamentals, plus you've got some awesome skills up your sleeve/leotard and a tonne of aerial experience... So it's onwards and upwards (pun intended!) to our Inter. & Adv. Recreational classes!

Intermediate Recreational: for students that have successfully and competently completed Level 5 (or as advised by an instructor).

Our Intermediate Recreational classes are designed for those that have participated in aerials as a hobby at a high level, for a number of years but are more than happy to keep enjoying the journey in their one class a week. 

We understand that once you've reached this level some skills become quite hard and even scary! Our focus is for you  to keep enjoying your aerial journey with us, for years to come! You will continue to learn new skills and moves, however the degree of difficulty won't increase at such a swift rate, and you should be able to keep progressing even if you're only training once or twice a week.

Advanced Recreational: 

Prerequisites for our Advanced Recreational class include:

  • Straight arm aerial inverts

  • Proficient in all basic aerial fundamentals  

  • Competency in demonstrating aerial awareness, strength and control through difficult skills

  • Ability to work on both right and left side when learning new skills & pathways

  • Committed to working on and progressing class specific skills a minimum of once a week, outside of class times (either at open training, private lessons or on home rigs if applicable) in order to keep up with the pace of the class

  • Desire to be trained at a higher level, pushed that extra mile and work harder to achieve more advanced skills!

Our recreational classes will spend time:

  • Learning new skills at an intermediate &/or advanced level

  • Perfecting harder/old skills that have a high reversibility rate

  • Creating new sequences and pathways out of old moves

  • All rec. classes will still be spending a portion of showcase terms learning their routines for our bi-annual showcases!

**Please note that Aerial Artistry® accepts no responsibility for acting as an agent and/or pursuing professional performance work for students**

The coaches are incredible and genuinely care about helping you build the strength and confidence to smash your goals!

Whether you've done aerials for years or didn't know what it was until you googled it, Aerial Artistry® is so welcoming no matter your level!
