Sky Candy is thrilled to announce that we will be taking over the lease of the beautiful VAMPS space on Cesar Chavez starting in early March! VAMPS owner Ember Ashe is truly excited that the space will continue to serve the aerial community, and we thank her from the bottom of our hearts for ensuring that her amazing space will continue to serve the aerial community.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to the VAMPS aerial students who will be joining us- we know we do things a bit differently from VAMPS, so in order to make your transition to Sky Candy as smooth as possible, here are the answers to some of the questions we’ve been getting from y’all. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a question that isn’t covered here- we look forward to seeing you in class!
Q: How do I sign up for Sky Candy classes?
Q: What kinds of classes do you offer at Sky Candy?
Series classes take place once a week for six weeks, and are mostly leveled apparatus classes (ie Silks 2, Lyra 1, Pole 3), with some more unique classes that also take place in Series format (ie Contortion Conditioning, Aerial Performance, Clowning and Physical Theatre). Each Series class costs $150 for six classes. We do not offer make-ups for missed classes- if you do have to miss a class, we recommend scheduling a private lesson with your instructor to make up the missed material. If you’re unsure as to which level classes are best for you, we recommend scheduling a half-hour assessment with the teacher whose class you would like to enter.
Drop-in Classes are available on a drop-in basis, with no commitment required! We do recommend signing up in advance to ensure your spot in the class. Our Drop-in Classes focus on building your strength, flexibility and performance skills, and are a great supplement to our Series Classes. Our Drop-in Classes range from $5 to $30 depending on the length and focus of the class.
Private Lessons are great for folks who want more one-on-one attention, or folks with wonky schedules- you get to pick the time, apparatus and teacher! Private lessons are $60 for one students, $70 for two students, and $90 for three students.
Q: What about Open Studio, what’s the deal with that?
A: If you are a current aerial student, you are welcome at Open Studio! Open Studio is a time to practice what you’re learning in class- it is NOT a time to teach others, try new things, or (heaven forbid) try to learn things from Youtube! There will be an Open Studio host present, but each student is responsible for their own safety and training during Open Studio.
Q: Does Sky Candy offer contracts?
A: We do not offer contracts- we do offer Unlimited Passes! These weekly or monthly passes are a great deal for our students who come to multiple classes or Open Studios each week.
