Ongoing Classes - Revised Class Schedule due to COVID-19

Classes

UPDATED POLICY/PROCEDURES due to COVID-19 - All classes will be offered in 6 week sessions. If a student wants to attend classes more than once per week, he/she will have to buy a spot in two different classes. This structure will allow the same group of students to be together in each class, thereby decreasing the amount of exposure people have to others. If you are unable to attend a class, you will not be allowed to send someone else in your spot, as we have allowed in the past. This stricter policy is in place for the safety of our students and staff. As CDC and county guidelines change and social distancing restrictions ease up, we may be able to amend this. Because this is a completely new system, we are starting with 6 week sessions so we can evaluate how things are working and revise, if necessary, going forward.

Session 3 : Tuesday Oct 6 - Sunday Nov 15

Since we will be structuring classes in 6 week sessions, we will no longer be using 10/10 or 10/20 cards. We understand that many students still have cards on file, so we will calculate the remaining value of all current class cards and that value can be applied towards the purchase of a spot in a 6 week session. Because everyone will be making a 6 week commitment, our pricing has been revamped. We looked at our previous single class prices and the 10/10 and 10/20 card prices while also considering the many new expenses that we are incurring in response to Covid-19, including PPE, cleaning/sanitizing supplies, etc. A spot in a 6 week flying trapeze session will cost $210 and a spot in a 6 week Aerial or Trampoline class will cost $180.

If a spot is still available, one can join into a session after it has begun, and the cost will be prorated for the remaining number of weeks. The exception to this will be if all spots have been booked and then someone drops out before the end of the session. Spots will not be resold.

Reservations will be taken on a first come-first served basis. You will need to choose the specific day and time of the class(es) you want to attend (i.e. Trampoline-Tuesdays at 5:45pm) and you will be committed to the class(es) you choose for 6 consecutive weeks. You can either email us at trapezearts@gmail.com or call 510-419-0700 to reserve your spot(s).

Because we have limited spots in each class, and our focus for everyone’s safety is on keeping the same groups of students together, our cancellation and change policy has been amended.

  • No changes can be made to your chosen date/time once a session has begun.
  • Since we will be only offering classes in 6 week sessions, there will be no ability to make-up for missed classes.
  • Once you have reserved a spot in a class, there will be no refunds.

This has been an incredibly difficult time for small businesses, and we still have many expenses to cover such as staff salaries, rent, insurance, utilities, etc. We greatly appreciate your support and understanding.

Flying Trapeze

Flying Trapeze class

During this phase of reopening, we will not be doing catches in flying trapeze classes. This extra time will allow you to perfect your tricks to the net, so when we are able to begin catching again, you will be ready! This is also a great time to work on your swing, force out, and other tricks on the bar.

- Due to the close proximity, our board instructors will be wearing a full face shield and face mask.
- We will still have chalk available for everyone’s use; chalk is a desiccant and will not spread the virus. However, if you would feel more comfortable using your own, you are welcome to bring it with you to class.
- Our staff will be disinfecting the ladder, uprights, safety belts, seating area, and trapeze bars between each class.

We will not be lending out the school’s grips (palm guards) to students. Gauze grips and leather grips are available for purchase.

As the manufacturer of the safety belts used at our school and by most Circus schools and Club Med Resorts, we will continue to provide safety belts and they will be disinfected between classes. However, if you prefer to purchase your own belt, we’d be happy to make one for you!!

Aerial Arts

All Aerial - Mixed(all ages and levels), Adults, Kids (7-14 years), and Youth (12-18 years.)

All Aerial classes offer tissue, static trapeze, hoop, and rope.

Advanced Tissue

Climbing, wrapping and dropping on an aerial silk - skills are similar to those used on a rope but even more challenging.

Each student will be assigned their own piece of equipment and they will use only that apparatus for the duration of the class.

- If students have their own apparatus (tissue, hoop, trapeze), they are welcome to bring it and use it for their class. Please note that student’s personal apparatus cannot be left at the school between classes.
- Instructors will have their own piece of equipment and area for demonstrations.
- Instructors will be relying on talking students through skills and avoiding hands on spotting whenever possible. After so much time away, chances are everyone will be rebuilding aerial strength and endurance, so please use this opportunity to review and perfect your technique!

Please do not share rosin with other students or instructors. We encourage you to bring your own. If you do not have any, we have it available for purchase, so please bring a container (sock, baggy, etc.) in which to put it.

Each student will have a designated area in which to sit and put their belongings.

- At the end of each Aerial class, students will be required to wipe down the mats and any equipment they used. The coach will spray the mats and equipment, and then the student will wipe them down. This method is being used in order to limit the number of people that touch the spray bottle cleaner.
- Aerial silks will be washed at frequent intervals.

Select a class type from the red box to see the class schedule. Max 4 students per class. $180 for 6 week session.

- There will be no hand-spotting during class but safety lines and safety harnesses may be used.
- Personal safety harnesses are encouraged, but the use of Trapeze Arts harnesses will be permitted.
- If you would like to use the fabric throw mats, please bring 1-2 fitted sheets either twin or fullsized to cover them during your turns.
- Socks are required during class, and students may wear a face mask if they feel their safety will not be compromised.
- Trampoline entry/exit points, mats and end decks will be sanitized between classes.

Max 4 students per class. $180 for 6 week session.
