Junior & Kids Aerial Classes in Stockport

Details on what to wear, how to book and general terms and conditions for our junior and kids aerial classes:

Booking: Sessions are strictly limited numbers to allow great ratio of teacher to student. Classes must be paid for in advance before the new term starts.

1 – Email kidsandjuniors@blushdance.com with your childs name, age and which day/time class you are looking to book.

2 – Call 07809613742 if we are unavailable please leave us a voice message.

If your child is unable to attend a class he/she has booked please email us at kidsandjuniors@blushdance.com. There are no refunds for the children’s term. If there is a session your child misses we offer catch up classes during the same term.

If we do not have space available in the class when booking we will add your child to our waiting list and if we receive a cancellation we will let you know we have a space.

Costs & Prices: Classes run consecutively in terms of 4, 5 and 6 weeks. We run alongside Stockport school term dates and close during bank holidays and school holidays.

We offer memberships or you can pay termly.

During the session: We appreciate it is only an hour and you enjoy watching your child in class, however the children respond better to teachers when they are left without parents. Please can you refrain from staying for the whole class to watch. You are welcome to collect 15 mins from the end of class to watch/take pictures of what your child has been learning.

Arriving: Please can you ensure you arrive 10 mins before class starts so your child can start with the other children for warm up and general class introductions. If your child is new to our classes you will be asked to complete a new starter form, therefore please arrive with enough time to find us and fill out our health and safety form.

What to wear: Aerial work can be tough on hands, feet, ankles, backs of knees and hips. We recommend protecting these areas by wearing tight fitting clothes which will not get caught in the equipment. Leotards, swim suits under leggings are ideal, as are T-shirts and leggings. We ask that your child brings a hoodie or long sleeved top incase moves which use arms are taught. We also ask that you do not send your children with bare legs or waists. Doubling up layers on legs, such as two pairs of leggings can be useful to cushion the feeling of the hoops and silks on the body. Over time it is something we get used to, and most children do not worry about this feeling half as much as we do, however, it can affect some more than others, therefore we offer this advice to help you support your childs experience in learning aerial arts.

We work in bare feet for warm ups and hair must be tied back and off the face to avoid it getting caught in the equipment. No jewellery is allowed at all for health and safety reasons.

Levels/Abilities: Our classes are split into ages. Youngest classes are 4-6 year olds. We have a separate class for older children and teens.

Syllabus. At our classes children learn our foundation aerial hoop and silks moves. Once they have learnt our foundation routines and moves, and completed level 1 of our syllabus, they are  recommended to work on our harder level of moves and complex tricks & routines.
