Welcome! We are excited that you’re exploring Sky Candy! We aim to make your family’s aerial and circus experience as fun, safe, and awesome as possible! Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions, and check out the Sky Candy Families Facebook Group to connect with other families! For your benefit, some commonly asked questions can be found below.
Please note that all participants in Sky Candy classes must have a signed waiver- you can fill out a waiver for your child by clicking the red box at the bottom right of this page.
- Does my child need to have any prior experience before signing up for classes or camps?
The majority of Sky Candy youth classes at this time do not require any prior experience! Check out our Drop-ins and Series Classes, none of which require any previous experience! All Sky Camps, except for the intensive camp, do not require any previous experience, either! There are no fitness requirements to register for classes, and we welcome all youth students!
- Is there an age limit for classes?
In order to participate in camps, series classes, and drop-ins, students must be six years old. (This is an insurance requirement, so we unfortunately cannot be lenient around this). However, children younger than six are able to participate in private lessons with their parents present! Youth who are thirteen or older are invited to register for our teen class.
- What should my child wear to class or camp?
For most of our aerial and circus classes, we recommend close-fitting workout clothes and bare feet. Check out our What to Wear/Bring page for additional details and photos of our kids in action!
- When should I arrive for class?
If it is your child’s first class, please arrive fifteen minutes before class time to fill out a waiver. We start all classes at their scheduled time, so please try your best to be on time!
- Can my child practice what they’ve learned outside of class?
Some things learned in class can be practiced at home (stretching, conditioning etc.) However, we encourage youth to keep aerial tricks inside the studio under the guidance of our trained aerial coaches. If a youth wants to practice skills learned in series classes outside of class, attending youth drop-ins are a great place to do this! Older youth with more experience can attend Open Studio with teacher permission.
- What are the class sizes and lengths?
Youth classes range from one hour (drop-ins) to 75 minutes (series classes). They can have as few as one, or as many as six students.
- How much time in advance do I need to sign up for a class?
It is best to register as far in advance as possible to ensure that you have the spot you want. Some of our classes get booked up weeks in advance. You can register for all of our classes in advance through the Mindbody site. Email email@example.com if you’re having trouble registering with Mindbody!
- Do you sell gift certificates?
Yes, and you can get them here!
