Open Practice Time

ALERT: Practice time is ONLY for students who are on Private Track, in Performance Prep (after the first class meeting), Intermediate I students practicing for advancement or an Intermediate II level student or higher! If you match one of these descriptions, continue reading ;)

Intermediate I students who have been through units 1-4 one time are eligible for practice time to work on class material, conditioning and workshop material that has been taught at AerialCLT by inside or outside instructors.

Before enrolling in Practice Time, please read the below Guidelines for Harmonious Living very carefully. If any of these guidelines are broken, you will no longer be allowed to attend Practice Time. We feel Practice Time is earned and is a privilege. After all, we are trusting you to keep yourself safe and respect the liability that AerialCLT assumes for you! Please respect the studio to the fullest and if you have any questions, just ask! We want to encourage growth and creativity but we must make safety a priority at all times.

Guidelines for Harmonious Living:

  • NO peer teaching - If you do not remember how to execute a move, you need to ask your instructor during a class. Do NOT ask your friend. Do NOT ask the teacher hosting Practice Time. Practice Time is not educational time, It is strictly for practice.
  • Work ONLY on moves you have learned at AerialCLT from an AerialCLT instructor.
  • If you can not remember how to do a skill, do not try to review and reteach yourself from class videos. (This is just as bad as learning from YouTube or Instagram)
  • Always work over a panel mat or crash mat. No exceptions.
  • NO peer teaching
  • You must attend at least 1 regularly scheduled aerial class per week if you are attending practice time. In order to be safe practicing alone, you must continue your aerial education in at least 1 class a week in the apparatus that you will be practicing on.
  • Creativity is encouraged, HOWEVER do not try to teach yourself moves from YouTube or any other source. This is unsafe and if you do this, you will no longer be permitted to attend practice time.
  • Please do not play amplified music. This can be distracting to other classes. Bring ear buds if you are working on a piece. We recommend investing in some nice blue tooth ear buds!
  • NO peer teaching
  • Must be 18 years and up unless in performance prep.
  • If you have or witness an accident in practice time, an instructor from the nearest class must be notified immediately.
  • Oh yeah, and did we mention - NO peer teaching?

Do you have workshop material you have learned that you want to practice?

If you are an Intermediate II level student or higher in the apparatus you are training, you may practice material learned in workshops.
If you are a student in performance prep classes and you want to add something you learned from a workshop into your choreography, please send a video to your instructor for approval.
If you are a private track student and your instructor is comfortable working with you on something you learned in a workshop, you may practice it in practice time.
