This looks fun, BUT...

“Am I strong enough?”

“What if I’m
scared of heights?”

“Is it expensive?”

“How do I get started?”

All your questions
answered in the
Beginner’s Guide!

At Bumbershoot Aerial Arts, we put the "play" back into life. With quality instruction and a nurturing environment, we empower you to get creative and have fun! When you come to class, we give you a trapeze and teach you that your options are limitless. Through climbing and swinging and dancing in the air, we expand perspectives and inspire new confidence.

We love altering people’s self image by showing them what they are capable of. As you climb to the top of a 30 foot rope, your every day challenges are put back in perspective. Bumbershoot Aerial Arts enriches peoples' lives by helping them find their inner monkey.

Teen open is for current (2016) teen aerial students to come and practice material that they have already learned with basic supervision. It's a good idea to write down what you want to work on during this practice. This practcoe can be used as a make up for 1 missed class per session, and must be made up during the current session only. Parent or guardian to stay during class, no drop-offs. There is no teaching or coaching at open, so please be prepared to warm yourself up, respect other aerialists, and fly safe with material you have been taught at Bumbershoot. Happy practice time! ONLINE PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
