Class Policies

What to Wear/Bring

Fitted workout-type clothing that you can move in. Leotard or a shirt that will stay tucked in is recommended. For most aerial classes you will want the back of your knees to be covered.


No metal or hard plastic of any kind. No fitbits, apple watches, buttons, zippers, snaps, grommets, velcro, or other accessories or embellishments that could snag the equipment.


Jewelry besides small, non-dangly earrings must be removed before class. If it is permanent and at risk of snag on the equipment it must be taped over.


Please make sure hair that is long enough to swing in front of the face is pinned back from the face and around the neck 


Drop Off/Pick Up

Kinetic Tapestry assumes responsibility for supervision of a minor child between the ages of 5 and 18 upon their entrance into the matted studio at the time their class begins. 


When minor children are waiting for parents for pick-up, they will wait in the interior waiting area only. The Aerial Studio is unable to assume responsibility  for monitoring/supervising minor children outside of the studio


Parents of a minor taking a Private Lesson need to remain present in the lobby area. This is not necessary for minors enrolled in a group class. 


In The Studio

Remove shoes before walking on the red mat


No gum, food or drink is allowed on the matted floor.  Water in sealed containers is permitted in the cubby area.


WEAR SHOES if you go to the restroom (through the shop.)


Respect the Instructor by listening to and following instructions the first time.


Treat the other students in your class with kindness and respect.


Make wise and safe choices when you are on the equipment.


Use only equipment you are expressly given instruction to by your instructor and only when you have

permission to use it.


Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late will be asked to observe the class


Any injuries, no matter how minor, must be reported to your instructor.


Potential students may observe class once and with instructor permission.


We ask parents and guests to remain in the lobby during classes. You may observe on the screen or through the open door. 



Liability Waiver

Prior to participating in a Kinetic Tapestry class or workshop all students must create an account through our website, read, agree to and sign our electronic Liability Waiver.


Any students under eighteen years of age must have a parent/guardian create an account, read, agree to and sign our  electronic Liability waiver on behalf of the student prior to participation in any Kinetic Tapestry class or workshop.



Class Advancement- Progressions

All classes at Kinetic Tapestry are based on a level progression system to ensure proper comprehension and safety.  Each level involves many different skills that are fundamental to the ability to safely learn the next level and the students must master these skills with good form before advancing to the next level.  A student will be allowed to take a class as many times as necessary to master the complete skill set, and will not be allowed to progress to a higher level until the instructor grants permission. Instructor decisions are final. ​


Aerial Fitness, Teen/Adult Intro to Aerial, Youth Intro to Aerial, Youth Circus, Kids Circus, Kids Aerial, Tumbling/Acro, Juggling/Equilibristics are entry level classes. All other classes have clear prerequisites that can be found in our class descriptions. 


Make Up Policy

We allow one make up class per session. Make ups may be done in another class of an apparatus and level the student is cleared for or an aerial fitness class. 


Make ups require advanced instructor approval and are provided there is room in the class.  


Drop In Policy

Drop- Ins are only allowed for students level 3 and up and with advanced written instructor permission.


Rate: $30 for 90 minute classes and $25 for 60 minute classes. Students must create an account on the website and sign an electronic waiver through the website prior to the class.
