Frequently Asked Questions

Your kid's safety and happiness are most important to us in our aerial classes. Here are answers to frequently asked questions about the Performance Team. Have additional questions - contact us at or 605-215-1505.


My kid has prior experience with aerial - will they be able to attend?

We offer opportunities to perform to all performance team students, regardless of skill level. We welcome higher-level; students the opportunity to try out and be a part of the team. Group pieces and solos will be selected based on skill level and work ethic.


Are costumes provided, or how are these handled?

Specific costumes will be selected for group pieces. We try to keep costume costs affordable, as these are not included in the monthly registration fee. All solo performance costumes must be selected and purchased independently. 


How do you ensure my kid is safe?

All of our aerial rig points were created specifically to be safe are sturdy. We have worked with certified riggers to evaluate the space, and frequently inspect and upgrade equipment. We have crash mats under each apparatus and foam flooring to keep your child safe. Safety is a number one priority in our studio across all of our classes.


What should my kid wear to class?

We recommend wearing a full length shirt and leggings that go past the need with no zippers. This will prevent chaffing and maximize comfort. No jewelry other then stud earrings are permitted on on the fabrics.
