Aerial Classes

Session classes start and end on a particular date, and students attend their class once a week at a regularly set time. Students enroll in one or many session classes.

Intro Chinese Pole $128Purchase required to enroll

In this class we'll work on the fundamentals of Chinese Pole--a variety of climbs, sits, and poses, introducing more dynamic and strength based skills as students are ready. Class will end with learning how to use the pole for strengthening and conditioning. Chinese Pole is a challenging, but extremely rewarding apparatus! Students will want to wear clothes that will cover their armpits and midriff. Please bring clean, soft soled athletic shoes such as Feiyue martial arts shoes or adidas wrestling shoes.

Pre-requisites: Students must be able to complete 1 pull up without assistance. Prior aerial or acrobatic experience will be extremely helpful.
