Showcase Participation Policy
iFLY Aerial Arts is a performing art and therefore the showcases are the highlight of the Aerialists experience. iFLY Aerial Arts emphasizes a curriculum of technical and artistic instruction. All iFLY students, regardless of level, are encouraged to demonstrate their aerial skills and artistic development with performances in the December and June showcases.
The June showcase is the “Highlight” of the whole year as this is a culmination of how hard Aerialists have trained. The anticipation and excitement will build each week as the performance date nears.
Participation in these showcases is considered an integral part of the Aerial Arts Program Experience. The showcases are something for Aerialists to look forward to and to strive for. Being part of a performance helps build self-esteem and self-confidence and gives students a chance to showcase the results of all their hard work, dedication, and progress on a theatre stage with professional lights, audio, etc.
The showcases belong to the performers. They are the stars, and what’s important is how they will remember their experience.
The rehearsal process is also a tremendous learning experience. It helps the students develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best result. Students will have a designated time for dress rehearsals.
Class Attendance is very important for each student, their classmates and teachers who all have to work together to put off amazing Showcases and participation is assumed.
Information provided in your account/profile is being collected for the purpose of registering for classes. This information will only be disclosed to staff of iFLY who will need the information in order to process registration and manage your account.
iFLY Aerial Arts reserves the right to use photographs and videos taken during classes, workshops, performances, or other affiliated events for the purposes of instruction, advertising and promoting iFLY Aerial Arts and its programs. Students, or parents of students who are minors, who do not wish to comply with this policy must notify email@example.com prior to participation in classes, workshops, performances or affiliated events.
Classes are not rescheduled or refunded if there is a storm. Please note we only close when absolutely necessary. We close when schools close and we will notify via email, facebook and iFLY website registration page.
CLASS LEVELS & PREREQUISITES - updated July 2023
We have re-structured the classes into Ages & Levels in order to provide the safest, most progressive and satisfying class experience for all. Developing strength and proper technique in Foundation Skills is of utmost importance. It is crucial that skills are taught in a safe, structured manner, in a class that meets everyone’s needs.
Current students will be evaluated at the end of the year and placed accordingly for the following session.
All new students will start at Level 1. A placement session is not required to register for Level 1.
If requesting Level 2 and up, students must attend a placement class to discern which is the correct level for them.
Moving through levels is not time based, but rather based on successful completion of skills required for each level.
Returning students please note:
Once registration opens, when you login to your parent portal to register, you will see that classes your child is eligible to attend.
Everyone sees Level 1, and only students added to the eligible list for levels 2+ will see that option.
Expectations for All Aerial students regardless of Age or Level are:
Positive attitude, interest in classes, willingness to learn and receive direction and critique, respect for all instructors and other students, active participation in building skills, strength, and vocabulary, safety awareness and compliance.
Level 1 - A starting place for all.
Focus is on learning Foundations Skills on the Hammock, Silks, Trapeze and Hoop. Successful completion of Foundation Skills are prerequisites to move forward to the next level.
Level 2 - Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 1; Confidence and competency in foundational skills.
Progressions of the Foundations Skills on the Hammock, Silks, Trapeze and Hoop into more complex movements and sequences.
Level 3 - Prerequisite Successful completion of Levels 1 and 2.
Progressions beyond the Foundations skills from Level 1 and 2 on the Hammock, Silks, Trapeze and Hoop. Progressions involving strength, technique, and endurance for serious students interested in learning more theory, developing their own moves, and building solid performance technique. The typical level 3 student has been practicing for many years.

Bring an extra layer for warmth with long sleeves and covered legs.
For Showcases, Costumes are wonderful and acceptable, but not mandatory. However, they should follow the same guidelines above.
