Take a class with us!
FALL 2021 CLASS UPDATE:
We are returning to session classes! We are going to continue smaller class sizes, social distancing, and masking for all students and staff. We are currently running short sessions, with the option to sign up for the session with a discount or individual drop-in classes at $35 per class.
Drop-in options through 10/2 are available to register now, and drop-in classes for Fall Session 2 will be open to register starting 10/1. For session classes, a make-up class is not guranteed but we will try to accomodate where there is availability in the same session.
If you are new to Xelias or to aerial arts, we recommend starting with a Mixed Apparatus class. Some new students prefer to get familiar with circus by taking a private lesson first but it is not required at this point.
A non-refundable $25 registration fee is due once per academic year (per family) and covers the administrative costs of all registrations for the year. This is due in September and will be paid at the studio.
We are extremely committed to safety in all ways. All students and staff are wearing masks, we have increased our ventilation, reduced our class sizes, and are continuing to social distance.
ONLINE REGISTRATION GUIDELINES
Small group registration is online, at this link. Please note that if you cancel your registration within 24 hours or miss class without notice, you will be charged for your class. If you are sick or have been exposed to COVID this will not apply. If you have to make a last-minute change to your registration, please email email@example.com and we will get back to you!
Classes marked as intermediate/advanced have prerequisites and you need to confirm with a coach before registering, unless you have been taking that level class with us previously. Please confirm age guidelines for youth classes!
Fall Session classes are viewable on Acuity in Fall Session Teen/Adult and Fall Session Youth Classes tabs. Wire and Contortion are in separate tabs. Please email us with any questions!
Private lessons are available to register via email. Privates are a great way to begin aerial, to develop more skills or work on a particular goal, or to polish an existing act for more advanced students. Rates are $100 for 50 minutes and an additional $35 for each additional student. Email firstname.lastname@example.org about available times.
How do classes work?
Students begin with a warm up, then are placed in a smaller group to match their skill level. We typically rotate through 2-3 different apparatuses and end with core conditioning exercises as a full class. Instructors use hands-on spotting methods to ensure student safety and technique. Some classes are single-apparatus and would not include rotations.
What types of apparatuses?
Students learn a progression of skills at their own pace. We always include both vertical apparatuses (tissu, rope) and nonvertical (trapeze, lyra, hammock, etc). We believe that cross-training on multiple apparatuses builds strong technique - for example, learning to safely invert on trapeze makes learning skills on tissu or rope safer and more attainable.
Xelias Reserves the right to merge or cancel registrations. We will only contact you regarding your registration if there is an issue. There is a yearly registration fee of $25.00 per family that is required, due in September. The fee will not be pro-rated.
