Series Dates

Welcome! We are excited that you’re exploring Shine Fitness Studio! We aim to make your family’s aerial experience as fun, safe, and awesome as possible! Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. For your benefit, some commonly asked questions can be found below.

Please note that all participants in Shine Fitness Studio classes must have a signed waiver–you can fill out a waiver for your child. Please complete the waiver here.

Does my child need to have any prior experience before signing up for classes or camps?
Our series classes do not require any prior experience! Camps also do not require any previous experience. There are no fitness requirements to register for classes, and we welcome all youth students who meet our age requirements.

Is there an age limit for classes?
Our Youth program is for those between 7-16 years of age. Some older teens who develop significant proficiency with an apparatus and exhibit remarkable behavior management may be approved by their teacher for adult classes.

Youth under the age of 7 may take Private Lessons at Shine Fitness Studio with the additional supervision by their parent(s) or guardian(s).

What should my child wear to class or camp?
For most of our aerial classes, we recommend close-fitting workout clothes. No denim is allowed as it prohibits a safe and effective range of motion. We will also ask any students to remove their shoes before getting on the mats, so they should be prepared to be barefoot for most of the time.

We prohibit clothing with metal zippers, exposed buttons, grommets or other decorative elements that may get caught on and damage the apparatus, likewise all jewelry must be removed beforehand as they could pinch the student and damage the apparatus. Lastly, we advise against applying lotions or oils before attending class, as they will impede grip.

When should my child arrive for class?
We ask that you try not to have your child arrive more than 15 minutes before their scheduled class. Please allow time to locate parking on site if needed, which can take extra time at peak hours. If your child arrives 10 minutes or more after the start of their class, they will not be allowed to join the class, for their safety and the safety of the other students.

Also, unfortunately, also due to COVID-19 precautions, we are not allowing parents to wait inside while their child takes a class. Only active participants are allowed in our physical space to limit the number of bodies within the building and help us keep appropriately distanced. Please ensure your child has all of their needed items and that they have their mask on and appropriately fitted before sending them inside.

Can I stay and watch my child?
We currently do not allow non-participating guests (such as the parents of youth students or people providing rides to our students) to wait in our lobby area while our students take classes or private lessons. We often encourage these guests to take advantage of the other services near the studio–in order to save space in the studio during busy times and help keep students focused on their work.

Should my child practice what they’ve learned outside of class?
Some things learned in class can be practiced at home (stretching, conditioning, etc.) However, we encourage youth to keep aerial tricks inside the studio under the guidance of our trained aerial instructors. If your child wants to practice the skills learned in Series Classes outside of the time there, you may schedule a Private Lesson for more focused practice time with a teacher. Older teens with more experience can attend Open Studio with teacher permission.

What are the class sizes and lengths?
Series Classes are currently 60 minutes and may have between three (3) and twenty (20) students. We have a ratio of 5 students to 1 aerial instructor. Series are subject to being canceled in the event there are fewer than 3 students enrolled for a given session. Full refunds will be provided in this case.

How much time in advance do I need to sign up for a class?
It is best to register as far in advance as possible to ensure that you have the spot you want. Some of our classes get booked up weeks in advance and camps can get full months ahead of time. You can register for all of our classes and camps in advance on our website or through Mindbody. Email info@dfwkidsaerials.com if you have any issues enrolling your child.

What if my child can't make it to a scheduled class date/time?
No make-ups, credits, or refunds will be provided for any days your child misses during their series. 

What if a class is full?
For Series Classes, please add your child to the waitlist. Joining the waitlist not only potentially lets them join the class in case of a cancellation, but it also lets us know if a class is popular enough to warrant an additional scheduling.

Can I sign my child up under my Shine Fitness Studio account?
No, we require each student, regardless of age, to have their own Shine Fitness Studio Mindbody account with which to sign up for classes, camps, workshops, etc.
