Figuring out where to start
So you are interested in aerial and circus arts but you don’t know where to start. Night Flight offers both adult (ages 16+) Series and Drop-in classes. Series classes include trapeze, silks, lyra, sling, straps, stretching, contortion, handstands and more. Our teachers are dedicated to offering fun and challenging classes with personalized attention. Aerial and circus training develops strength, control, flexibility and fluidity of movement and it is a great way to get in shape.
Although, our primary focus is Series classes since we believe that this is the very best learning environment for our students, we do offer weekend Drop-in classes. If you are on the fence about aerial classes, we recommend trying one of our Saturday and Sunday Drop-ins before committing to a Series. This is a great way to get a taste of aerial and check out our studio. Please note: We don’t allow Drop-ins in our Series classes. Our Drop-in classes focus primarily on silks and trapeze.
Learning aerial is challenging and we are more than happy to work at each student’s level. We don’t expect any of our new students to be crazy ex-gymnasts. All it takes is an willingness to learn! We are excited to share our love of aerial and our wonderful Night Flight community with you!
Our Series classes run for approximately 7 weeks. Each Series class covers a specific set curriculum. Our Series classes range from beginning classes to advanced. New students interested in our Aerial Series classes who have no previous aerial training are required to start with Beginning Aerial 1. Night Flight also offers Series classes in stretching, contortion, handstands and more. Class size is limited, so register early.

Stuff you should know for your first day
Students are not allowed into class more than 15 minutes after class starts. The warm-up is part of the class and for safety reasons, we can’t allow students on the equipment without a proper warm up. Arrive early so we can get the paper work out of the way.
Wear form-fitting clothes. We suggest a pair of tights/leggings and form fitting shorts or fitted yoga pants that aren’t too loose around the ankle and a form fitting tank, workout top, or leotard. Clothes that are too baggy can get caught on the equipment and may drive you crazy. NO ZIPPERS or jewelry on the equipment. We suggest leaving all your jewelry at home where it’s safe. Bring water or a water bottle to class. You will be so much happier if you do.
