Do you offer scholarships?

Where are you located?

Our studio is at 5001 117th St in Leawood, KS. We are part of Town Center Plaza in the bisecting street, near the leasing office. We are located under the archway, next to a vacant outdoor patio, or just south of Sundance. Go to the Contact page to see our location on a map.

When should I start? Do you have enrollment deadlines or semesters?

Our class sessions usually run around 6 weeks long. Registration will typically open two weeks before the start of the session and will remain open through the first week of the session. We have a limited number of classes that will allow drop-in students, but the majority of our curriculum is built around a progressive completion of material from the previous week. If you are unable to jump into a session right away, let us know – we can direct you to the best place to get started with us!

What should I wear?

Comfortable, but close fitting clothing that will not restrict your range of movement (including inversions) is recommended for all apparatuses. Tights or yoga pants (no zippers or attachments please!) that cover the legs behind the knees are encouraged. For Silks, a shirt that covers the underarms is best for both comfort and safety. For men, a dance belt is highly recommended. For Trapeze and Lyra beginners, ankle footies are recommended. Jewelry (especially rings and long earrings) is not permitted during class. Please also make sure you trim your finger and toe nails for safety and to avoid snagging the fabric.

What do I need to do before class?

Please register online in our class schedule before coming to class. Most classes include a warm-up with some conditioning and stretching, but warming up on your own or stretching especially tight areas before and after class is encouraged. Make sure you are hydrated and have eaten something within 1-3 hours before coming to class.

Can I do this?

We will never turn anyone away who comes with a positive attitude and who is open to try. Coaches will be available to guide and spot you through each exercise. Modifications can be made to the curriculum for those who feel uncomfortable with the skills or activities during classes.

Are there physical requirements? Are there any physical exclusions?

We work with all ages and all ability levels, though safety is our biggest concern. We ask that students enrolled in regular classes be at least 13 years old. Please let the instructor know if you have any of the conditions or symptoms listed below (this is not an exhaustive list – please let us know of other serious health risks and conditions!). Modifications can be made so just because you have one of the conditions does not mean we will exclude you from class.

  • Glaucoma
  • Hypertension
  • Uncompensated congestive heart failure
  • Carotid Artery stenosis
  • Hiatal hernia or spinal instability
  • Persons receiving anticoagulants or aspirin therapy
  • High or low blood pressure
  • History of stroke, or heart conditions of any kind

My child has special needs. Do you have options for them?

Absolutely! Talk with an instructor prior to class so that necessary adjustments to class curriculum or structure can be made before you arrive. The more prepared we can be before class starts the more enjoyable an experience we can provide for you and your child.  You can contact Bridget at contact@kansascityaerialarts.com to get this conversation started.

My child is under 13. Are there options for them?

Of course! Since children under 13 require more hands-on attention than we can offer in our group class setting, we have Pre-Teen-specific classes available during the late afternoons and weekends. That way, our coaches can work with your child one-on-one to minimize the risk of injury and guide them safely through aerial practice.

Do you offer private instruction?

We offer private instruction every day of the week to work with your schedule. We offer private lessons in Silks, Trapeze, Lyra, Contortion/Flexibility, Aerial Yoga, Aerial Fitness and/or Conditioning, Act Creation, and Dance regularly, but if there is a specific apparatus or skill that you would like help with, we will do our best to accommodate your request. Please contact Bridget at contact@kansascityaerialarts.com and we can help you find a coach to fit with whatever skills you would like to explore.

** NOTE: Private and semi-private instruction rates are set independently by each coach. We will quote the rate with you when confirming your lesson and coach.

What about parties or events?

We would love to host your next birthday party, bachelorette party, team building event, or other special event! Visit our Reserve a Party page to learn more.

I’d like to book KC Circus Co. for an event. How should I go about doing that?

Great! We have a wide variety of options and we love trying new stuff! Please send an email to daniel@kansascityaerialarts.com.

I have another question that isn’t listed!

We would love to hear from you! Send us an email at contact@kansascityaerialarts.com or give us a call at (913) 271-6918.
