Kids’ Aerial Classes
Children’s aerial classes will run weekly and even run on bank holidays, and through the school holidays! There are 2 different age groups, the minimum age for these classes is 5 years old, and the maximum age is 15 years old.
We will be social distancing and have shortened the kids’ classes, so the maximum amount of students in a class will be 6 with 4 hoops over 40 minutes instead of an hour. Children are only allowed to share a hoop if they live together or are in the same support bubble.
Please read our COVID-19 Policy on our FAQs page before emailing to book in.
Ages 5-9 years old
4:40pm – 5:20pm Wednesday
4:40pm – 5:20pm Friday
Ages 10-15 years old
5:30pm – 6:10pm Wednesday
5:30pm – 6:10pm Friday
6:20pm – 7:00pm Friday
There are no kids’ aerial silks classes until all social distancing rules have ended.
A children’s aerial lesson lasts for 40 minutes (changed from an hour due to shortening classes because of social distancing) and costs £10 per session, payable in advance. When you book in, we ask you to pay £10 to reserve your child’s space. This pays for your child’s first lesson. When you collect your child at the end of the session, if you want them to have a space in the class we will ask you to pay in monthly installments.

Lessons begin with a fun dance / aerobic warm up, followed by learning tricks, poses and positions in the equipment (like the ones in the video at the bottom of this page), then we finish with a cool down, consisting of stretches and strengthening exercises. Please read the FAQs to find out what is suitable to wear during lessons.
Aerial arts do take a lot of upper body strength, but complete beginners are always welcome! Very few people start out with the upper body strength to lift themselves easily into the hoop, but strength builds over time as the students learn tricks and poses step-by-step. Whatever your child’s ability or fitness level, the instructor will be able to help them get into the hoop and having fun!
All children are welcome so please do not worry if your child has any learning difficulties or behavioral issues. We welcome all and are here to help children have a great time and enjoy themselves.
Hoop / Circus Parties
A party at Emily’s Pole Fitness is a private session where your child and their friends will have the instructors’ whole attention. The studio will be decorated for you. The session will begin with a fun warm up, you will then get to know the equipment, and learn some moves suitable for complete beginners with plenty of photo opportunities. At the end, all participants will receive a certificate. Ideal for birthday parties and other celebrations! Parties are one hour long and cost £20 per child, with a 2-child deposit of £40 required to secure your booking. Minimum to book a party is 6 children, maximum is 12 children per party.
