Youth Programs

Semesters and Workshops
All Levels for ages 8+

Our motto is, Be safe and have fun! In partnership with Hermitage Dance Academy, we offer three levels of aerial sling (i.e. hammock) training with several opportunities for performances. 

Unlike most programs, all skills are optional; we allow young artists to develop at their own pace with great attention to safety. Please contact HDA for sign-up details.

Preparing for Aerial Class

Please contact us if you have questions or would like assistance.

Preparing for Aerial Classes:


Aerial dance is a unique practice — it has the capacity to provide support to people who need it and challenge thrill seekers. Satellite Dance aims to help others experience the joy of movement, especially those who experience chronic conditions or neurodiversity. 

 

By nature of the art form, aerial dance also carries risks. HDA and Satellite Dance have consulted with the circus community, aerial suppliers, structural engineers, insurance agencies, and building managers to ensure programs comply with current industry standards.

 

Before starting your aerial practice, review the following:

 

  • Masks might be required during periods of peaking COVID-19 cases. Should we require masks, we will be in communication with the students and family members and give ample warning.

  • High-cut, form-fitting tops and leggings are required for class. Shoulders, stomachs, and kneecaps MUST be covered.

  • Remove jewelry and/or clothing with sharp edges and zippers. Exercise devices are not allowed.

  • Remove socks and avoid applying lotions 90 minutes before class.

  • Avoid eating large meals 90 minutes before class. 

  • Aerial practice is sometimes not recommended for spine injuries, ongoing illnesses, vertigo, sensitivity to motion sickness, heart problems, history of stroke, and pregnancy. If you’re unsure if you or your student can participate, please consult your doctor.

  • If you or your loved-one is interested in aerial but might require additional assistance in class, please don't hesitate to reach out.
