Policies & Procedures
What to Wear
Wondering what to wear to your aerial arts classes? Here is what we recommend so you can have fun and stay safe.
- Close-fitting clothing, such as yoga or dancewear, is best for aerial arts classes. Baggy clothing can get caught in the silks.
- You'll want to protect your midsection, so wear either a shirt that can be tucked in or a leotard or unitard.
- We recommend bringing an additional long sleeve shirt or crop top to protect the underarms.
- To protect the backs of your knees wear leggings, yoga pants, or footless dance tights.
- Avoid any jewelry, zippers, buckles, and baggy clothing as they may get caught or cause damage to the apparatuses.
- Please avoid using lotion, oils, or heavy perfumes prior to class.
Our Safety Standards
At Lux Performance Arts, we take safety very seriously. We do everything we can to provide a quality, fun, and safe learning environment.
- All rigging points, apparatuses, rigging materials and hardware are inspected regularly by qualified instructors and certified riggers.
- During training, we will warn students of potential risks and how to avoid them.
- An instructor will always be present during class or open training to assist when needed.
- In the event of an injury, first aid will be administered immediately and further medical attention will be called upon if necessary. If the injured is a minor, the parent/guardian will be notified immediately.
- All students are required to complete a liability waiver. If the student is a minor, it must be signed by the parent/guardian.
- Students must use caution and follow instructions for their own safety, and that of others.
- Students must come to class prepared to work without being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
- Follow the directions of your medical provider regarding any limitations in activity, and communicate any important information to your instructor.
Open Training Policies
Aerial arts students who wish to practice what they have learned in class are encouraged to come during open practice sessions. We have also developed several studio policies to help keep you safe.
- Students may not teach other students.
- Students may only practice what they have been taught by an aerial arts instructor.
- Classes are limited to 6 students, so it is important to sign up as soon as your class is available.
- Please arrive on time to class. If there is a a need to change, get water, or speak with staff plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early.
- Multi-class passes expire in 4 weeks.
- Due to limited class space, group class cancellations must be made at least 12 hours prior to the scheduled start time.
- Late cancellations will be charged.
- If you miss your regular lesson but cancelled 12 or more hours prior, or if you know you are going to miss your usual class (due to vacation, etc), you are welcome to make it up in another class as long as there is an opening and it is appropriate for your skill level. If you are unsure of which class is appropriate for you, please contact us and we will be glad to help!
