Please note: We don’t allow Drop-ins in our Series classes. But we do offer a few Aerial Drop-in Classes on the weekends! You can get more information on our Drop-ins here.
Night Flight offers adult (ages 16 and up) Series classes in aerial & circus arts in Portland, OR. Our Series classes are the perfect learning environment for students of all levels, from beginner to advanced. Aerial Series technique classes include silks (tissu), static trapeze, lyra (hoop), rope and straps. 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 technique classes in stretching, contortion and handstands (hand balancing). Each Series class covers a specific set curriculum. Class size is limited, so register early.
How to Sign-up
Just pick a class that’s right for your level and a day/time that works for you (that you can stick with it for the entire length of the Series) and visit our Online Registration. It’s just like signing up for a college class. Payment actually reserves your spot in our Series classes, so you will need to pay in full to know your spot is secure. Attending Series classes twice a week will make a HUGE difference in progress. We highly recommend this option. Please note: We only accept cash (exact change) or check at our studio.

Series vs Drop-ins
While drop-ins are a great way to try aerial to see if it is a good fit for you, we strongly believe Series classes are the best way to learn. The biggest benefit of Series classes is that they taught in a progressive learning style with the same group of students. The group learns new material over the course of entire Series and skills build on top of each other. Since Drop-in classes allow new students to participate all the time, teachers need to cover basic foundational aerial techniques again and again. Which keeps the Drop-in classes from progressing in the same way as the Series classes. Having Series tightly structured and keeping students in their appropriate groups allows for challenging and fun classes.
Instructor Approval to Advance
Levels Instructor approval is required to advance levels. While everyone can sign up online for our Beginning Aerial Series, instructor permission is required for students wishing to advance to a new level. Here are the steps to advance:
- Master the prerequisites for the next Series level
- Check in with your current Night Flight instructors about your progress
- Email us at email@example.com, we will confirm with your instructors
- If you are granted permission, the more advanced Series classes in our online registration system will be ‘unlocked’ and you can sign-up

- No one is allowed on the equipment without an instructor’s supervision.
- Students are not allowed in class if they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If they do they will be asked to leave.
- Students can only work on material the teacher is covering in classes. If a student wants to work on other material they must get instructor permission.
