After you take the (L0) Intro to Sky Dance or a Sky Yoga class, you can jump right into (L1) Sling classes for fun and less grip intensive sequences, or if you can hang from the fabrics for 10 seconds, join (L1+) Flight School to learn foundations for more advanced Sky Dance classes. When you are ready to test into an advanced class, let your instructor know during Supervised Practice. They will do a short evaluation with you to determine if you have the pre-requisite skills to join the class. New students with previous aerial experience must also come to Supervised Practice to be evaluated and placed in a class before joining advanced classes. Check out the pre-requisite skills for each destination here.
