Terms & Policies
Momentum Aerial is a safe space for all. Please treat everyone at our studio with respect. There is no discrimination on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, disability, mental status, gender identity, political opinion, or body image.
Students may not use equipment without the supervision and immediate approval of an instructor.
Students must always have mats underneath themselves to while using any aerial apparatus. Enveloping mats are required for any inversions (pole & trapeze may be excluded, follow the direction of your instructor).
Students must warmup and cool down before and after each class.
Students are not permitted to teach other students in class or during open gyms. If you have a question, please ask your instructor. Do not ask other students in open gym to teach you a skill; practice only what you know.
Silks students may not wear any jewelry, zippers, snaps, abrasive fabrics, sequins, rhinestones, or other sharp objects on their person while on the silks. Do not chew gum in class. Students need to have reasonably trim nails to use the silks.
Please help us keep the equipment hygienic for all. We request that students come to class with clean bodies. If a student comes to class with unreasonably body odor or stinky feet, the instructor may ask the student to sit out.
If you are sick, please stay home. If you are coughing or sneezing, or showing visible signs of illness, please do not come to class. Talk with your teacher about doing a makeup class instead.
Students desiring to film or take pictures must have consent of everyone in the room. Be respectful of your fellow students when thinking about posting to social media. Ask for consent first!
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before class time. Students who arrive 10 minutes after class time may be asked to observe class for that session.
If a class is going on in the aerial studio, please keep side conversations to a minimum and at low volume. Be aware of your impact on other student’s abilities to focus.
Students may not come to class impaired in any way. Students under the influence of drugs or alcohol, mental distress, or physical injury may be asked to leave or watch class instead of participate.
In the event that a student misses a class, we ask that they let their instructor know in advance. In the event that a student misses multiple classes, the student may need to withdraw from the session, or schedule private make ups with their instructor. Missed classes can be made up by attending:
A class of the same level, or a level below
Open Gym, Aerial Conditioning, Flexibility, Aerial Yoga or Progressive Ballet Technique
For students on a membership, classes can only be made up during the semester of enrollment. For example, if you purchase a once a week pass for the Spring Semester, you may not roll over credit for missed classes in the Summer Semester.
Via scheduling a private lesson ($60/1hr) with an instructor if more than one class in a row as been missed
Punch Cards are valid for one year after purchase, Punch Cards are a great option if you aren’t able to attend a weekly class regularly, or for students interested in our Open Gym and Aerial Conditioning programs. You may use a punch card to pay for another student, so it is a fun way to treat a friend to an aerial class!
Memberships are a fantastic option because they are a better value than a punch card, and they include 5 free Open Gym/ Aerial Conditioning/Flexibility/Progressive Ballet Technique classes included. They encourage you to commit to the semester, which means you will get more out of your classes. Memberships are only valid for the semester of purchase. Memberships cannot be put on pause or resumed for another semester.
Refunds are only offered in the case of extenuating circumstances. Contact Momentum's owners Morgan or Joanie as soon as possible in the event that you need a refund. Partial reimbursement may be an option, or credit. It is also the right of Momentum Aerial to refuse a refund.
Student of Momentum Aerial can become performers for special events: If you are a level 3 or 4 student, let us know if you are interested in performing at special events.
Students can join up to 1 month into the session, after that, our instruction based classes close, with the exception of friendly classes (Aerial Conditioning, Flexibility, Progressive Ballet Technique and Aerial Yoga).
In the event that a class is full, drop in’s may not be permitted to attend.
If you are dropping into classes, please let us know in advance.
Class Cancellation: If a class is canceled, instructors will schedule a makeup class with their students. If a class is canceled for the semester due to instructor illness or other extenuating circumstances, a refund will be issued for the remainder of the class.
Participation in the curriculum: Most classes are progressive curriculum classes, which in the last 8 weeks of the semester, focus on the Student Showcase performance piece. Even if you are not performing in the Student Showcase, you will still be invited to follow along with the rest of the class and learn the routine.
