Clothing & Equipment
What should I wear to class?
We recommend form fitting but comfortable clothing, keeping in mind that you may be going upside down. Please note that gum, jewelry, and lotions are NOT allowed on any of our aerial apparatus or poles.
What else should I bring?
Please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated and a yoga mat (optional) for warm ups.
What are your pandemic policies?
Masks are required at all times in the studio. If you arrive without a mask, you will not be permitted to enter the building.
Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your class start time (to allow time for the previous class to clear out and the sanitization process to be completed).
When you arrive, please wait at the front doors with a mask on until our front desk staff invites you in to take your temperature.
We will have hand sanitizer available throughout the space, but you are also welcome to bring your own.
No equipment sharing whatsoever during class or open gym.
Maintain a social distance of at least six feet while in the space. Be diligent when selecting a warm up spot. Our aerial points are about 8 feet apart. So, just stay with your apparatus! If you wish to record yourself during class, cameras should be set up socially distant from other cameras, make sure you stay in your zone and aren't crossing paths with others.
Please limit your belongings to items that will fit into one cubby (shoes included). Cubbies are a one-at-a-time station. So, please allow students to place things in their cubby and wait for them to step away before you approach.
Wash your hands after placing your things in the cubby.
Please bring your own yoga mat or towel for warm up.
To avoid congregation near the cubbies after class, we ask that you please collect your things from the cubbies quickly and one at a time, moving away to maintain social distance while you put shoes back on etc. To prevent close contact we will have an ICCA staff member clean all cubbies after you exit. We ask that you exit promptly after class so we can sanitize and get the next class in.
Aerial students: if you would like rosin, please bring a sock that we will fill & a baggie to store it.
Pole students: we will have towels/rags and spray alcohol for the poles available, but if you are not comfortable sharing, we recommend bringing your own.
Please exit through the back doors (near the stereo) to avoid crossing paths with incoming students.
Please stay informed regarding out of state travel recommendations on the CDC website.
And as always, if you feel sick, have been around someone who has been sick, or for any other reason think you may have been exposed to the virus, please let us know and stay home!
