Youth & Tween Aerial Arts
 

General Info
 

Aerial Arts of Rochester offers Memberships for our Youth Programming. You can start at any time providing there is an available space. All NEW students must start with Youth Introduction to Aerial as this will allow them to become comfortable working with aerial apparatuses and go over safety. Each level and apparatus will have movements they need to complete before advancing. We will keep track of the progress with skill charts. Although our programs are not competitive, the use of skill charts and the requirements of accomplishing specific moves is so that we can keep children safe. Aerial Arts is very individualized and our memberships will allow them to advance at their own pace. When they are ready to move up, simply contact us so that we can switch them into the appropriate class. Children are also welcome to change into a different type of class - in other words if they are in fabrics, they can switch to metals. If you wish to cancel your membership, simply provide the studio with 2 weeks written cancellation notice. The studio has performance opportunities available 2 times a year, however they are optional.
