Frequently Asked Questions

Is aerial silks dangerous?
It's understandable that you might be doubtful that 2 pieces of material can hold your body weight but our Aerial Silks are rated to 3 tonnes so unless you weigh more than a small SUV car, you won't be able to break our Silks! Our Silks are also on pulley systems so if you get accidentally all caught up in a trick that you can't get yourself out of, we can easily use the pulley to help lower you down to the big squishy crash mats under your Silk.
It is best to wear full length leggings and something not too loose on the top for Silks. Due to the material of the Silks, cotton clothing will give you the best grip instead of lycra or shiny based materials. We also have a strict no shoes, zips or jewellery policy on our Silks as these things can very easily tear the Silks. Jewellery is in danger of being torn off you if it gets caught up in a wrap so it's best to leave all jewellery (especially rings, bracelets and big earrings) at home.
Usually there's no need to book in for an assessment with us to determine which of our levels would be suited to your skill set from another studio. We think it's way better if you come try out a casual class with us so you can meet the other students, get a feel for our instructors style and experience the atmosphere at the studio. Because after all, if you don't like any of that stuff, it doesn't really matter which level of ours is best for you! Feel free to contact us to have a chat about your previous training experience so we can make some suggestions of which casual class to try with us.
We do require a $50 deposit to hold a spot in all of our courses and the remaining amount needs to be paid in full before the end of week 1 of your course. You can go on a payment plan but please be aware that payment plans incur a weekly $5 fee for every week past the due date that you are still paying it off.
