Class Info & Policies
All of our classes, except for AirFIT, run on a session by session basis or month to month with our autopay system. Our normal sessions are 12-14 weeks long, except for our summer flex session.
Fall Session 2017: August 14th- November 18th, 2017
Winter Session 2017/2018: November 20th- March 3rd, 2018
Spring Session 2018: March 5th – June 2nd, 2018
Summer Session 2018: June 4th-August 11th, 2018
Auto Pay System: This option allows you to pay month to month with a credit card on file. With autopay, you are automatically enrolled in your class each session until you tell us you would like to drop. Iluminar requires a written, 30 day, drop notification via email or a drop form at the studio. It must be a written notification, so we have proof of your drop. Telling your teacher does not justify giving a drop notice. Auto pay clients are financially committed to the entire session they are enrolled in. You are eligible to drop 30 days before the end of the current session if you do not want to continue in the next session.
Pay in Full: You can also pay for the session in full if you wish to not put a credit card on file. You can pay with a credit card, cash or check with this option. You are automatically dropped at the end of each session and will have to re-enroll for the next session.
Only students are allowed in the studio space for classes. All parents and siblings must hang out in the viewing room or sibling play room during the class time.
Students must wait in the viewing room and will be called in by their instructor when class is beginning. Students are not allowed to hang out in the studio space if they are early to class.
Do not wear any kind of lotion, cream, or oil of any sort on any part of your body the day of or the night before class. Chemicals and oils in these lotions damage and ruin the equipment and cause it to be un-safe to use. Iluminar reserves the right to sit a student out for class if they are covered in lotion!
Wear tight fitting clothes that will cover the torso, backs of the knees and armpit areas. Leotard, tights and a tight fitting shirt that covers the armpits is best. Tights should go a bit down past their knees to cover the back side but should not cover their feet. Men can wear long athletic shorts or pants and we recommend biker shorts underneath, as the majority of our work is upside down! Please avoid baggy clothes as this will get caught in the fabric and ropes. Do not wear any clothing that has zippers, buckles, buttons or anything else sharp that can tear our fabric. Jeans are not allowed.
No jewelry is allowed during class, including earrings. These can get caught in the silk and can rip the fabric, so please take off everything before class.
A cuts, scrapes or any open wounds must be covered with a band-aid and with athletic tape before class time to prevent the wound from reopening and getting blood on any equipment. Athletic tape is required as a band-aid will come right off after a few minutes of climbing on the equipment.
Hair must be worn up to maintain a safe working environment for class. You need to see clearly when hanging upside down
All students will need to fill out a liability waiver form for Iluminar Aerial before the start of class to be able to participate.
WASH hands before class time, and if needed, your feet too to keep the equipment clean! If needed, we will instruct children and adults to wash their hands and feet before class.
Please maintain your personal hygiene. Aerial arts is a very close contact art form and maintaining good personal hygiene is essential in a positive work environment and courteous to other class mates.
No flash photography during class time is allowed. Photos without flash is acceptable.
You are allowed to make-up any missed classes you miss during a session, as long as they are all made up during the current session. For instance, if you miss a spring class, you cannot make it up during the summer session. There is no limit to how many classes you can make-up, you just must make them up during the current session. However, it is subject to what classes have room in them for make-ups. You also must schedule your make-ups in advance so we can properly plan for enough teachers to be present in the class. Please email or call 24 hours before your desired make-up class to reserve your spot. We reserve the right to send a student out of class if we are over our student:teacher ratio for safety.
We require a 30 day written drop notice (email or drop form) to drop from a class if you are on the autopay system. Please fill out the form at the studio and turn it in to your instructor if you wish to drop.
We do not offer any refunds for classes. If for any reason, you need to cancel you or your child’s class during a session, a credit in the amount that has not been used will be issued to you for any future classes.
“No Obligation” Trial Classes
We do not offer free trials for our classes, we do offer a “no obligation” trial. If you end up not liking the class, then you do not have to pay for it. If you do like the class and would like to enroll in the class after the trial, then the cost of the trial class will be included in your first payment.
These “no obligation” trials are only offered in AirKids and Teen/Adult Air Essentials classes. There are no trials allowed in AirFIT or any adult technique classes. Students can “try” the class out only by paying a drop-in fee.
Drop In Classes
We do allow drop-ins for all our AirFIT, and dance technique classes as well as our aerial technique classes for levels 1-3 at the drop in rate for any experienced aerialists.
AirFIT Punch Cards
Our AirFIT, aerial fitness class for ages 12+ runs on a punch card system. You can choose between a 12, 8 or 4 class punch card. The more punches you buy at a time, the cheaper the end up being per class. Your punches expire one year after purchase.
12 class card-$144
8 class card- $112
4 class card- $64
Drop-In Price: $20
