YOUTH CIRCUS SHOWCASE

Sign up for two consecutive semesters, and be a part of our Aerial Arts Youth Showcase!

The Youth show will be held for those students who attend the two consecutive semesters to ensure that your child feels ready to perform their skills for an audience.

The show will be held on Sunday, June 26th here at AANYC.

 

MAKE UP CLASSES

Do you have any date conflicts? That’s okay! Students are allowed to make up 2 classes per semester.

Make Up Classes must be scheduled through the front office on one of the subsequent days that Youth Circus classes are offered. Example: If you take class regularly on Mondays, then you can schedule a makeup on either Wednesdays or Saturdays.

Simply email the front office at info@aerialartsnyc.com to schedule the make up class, and be added to the make up list.

If you plan on taking more than 1 class per week, simply email the front office at info@aerialartsnyc.com, and we will be happy to assist you in signing up for the appropriate classes with the corresponding discount.

(Workshops will be capped at 6 students, with a required minimum of 3 students signed into a workshop in order to run.)

Youth Private Circus Classes

Our minimum age for participation in regularly scheduled classes is 16. For students under age 16, we do offer the option of Private Class instruction in 30-minute and 1-hour sessions according to instructor and space availability. If you would like to set something up for young students, please email the office below. Visit this page for more details about Private Class instruction.

All students under age 18 will need a signed waiver by a legal parent/guardian before being able to take class. This waiver is valid for the current calendar year and will need to be replaced each subsequent year.

If you would like the waiver in advance, please email the office, and we can send over a PDF copy that you can print out and bring along when you arrive for your first class.
