Enrollment Policies:
Registration will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and must be paid in full or a agreed-upon deposit to secure a spot in class.

Current registration, waiver and emergency contact information must be complete before attending the first class.

Refunds will only be issued for medical reasons or at the owners’ discretion.

Most classes will be taught in sessions; classes that are suitable for drop-in will be noted as such (check during week of for availability). Private lessons can be scheduled but require a 24-hr notice to cancel.

Make up classes will be available on a limited basis.  To maintain a small class size, this will be by permission of your instructor.

Classes are small! Enrollment is limited to 6 per class in most classes. A class may be cancelled if enrollment is less than 2 and a prorated refund will be issued.


What to wear:
Comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement. For aerials and other classes that involve being upside down, a leotard or a shirt that is secure when tucked in are recommended.  Class will be either in bare feet or clean socks. For aerial silks- it is recommended that fitted pants that cover the back of knees and a shirt that covers the armpits are worn. No jewelry or bare midriffs and long hair must be secured.

What to bring
Water.
A post-class snack (please note that no food is allowed in the gym area).
Do not bring valuables to class as we cannot be responsible for them.


Class Policies:
Students of all ages should be ready, willing and able to follow direction of their instructors.
Safety will always be first priority in class.
No students under the influence of alcohol or drugs (including prescription drugs) that impede good decision making will be allowed to participate in class.
Since many classes build upon skills from the prior classes, it is important to come to class on a regular basis.  The warm up is essential to safe performance in class and as a result, instructors may choose not to admit students that are more than 15 minutes late.
Please do not come to class if you are sick or have any other communicable condition that is a hazard to your instructor or other students.  We will try to work with you to reschedule classes instead.



Children’s Classes

Parents of children under 12 should stay in the space during the class.
We cannot be responsible for watching children before or after their scheduled classes.
We believe that circus is for everyone but if your child is disrupting the learning environment, we will communicate with you about potential solutions.  If a child threatens the safety of others, they will be removed from class.

Photo/ Video Policy
Please use courtesy when taking photos or video in the studio.  You should have your instructor’s permission as well as any other students in the studio.  Do not put photos or video of others on the internet or social media without their permission.


*Parents, guardians and guests
 Only registered students are allowed in the main studio space. MAS offers an opportunity to watch classes from the lounge area. Please help us keep   the area neat and reasonably quiet.

​*Monkey Aerial Arts believes that circus is for everyone and will not discriminate based on race, creed, gender, sexual orientation. We will also make reasonable and safe attempts to accommodate special needs persons in classes.
