DEAR STUDENTS,

WE HERE AT AERIAL ARTIQUE DEEPLY UNDERSTAND THE JOYS IN SHARING YOUR SUCCESSES AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS THAT OCCUR WITHIN OUR SPACE. WE KNOW WHAT IT MEANS WHEN FAMILY AND FRIENDS CAN TAKE PART IN SUPPORTING YOU. ONE WAY TO DO THIS IS THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA, AND BELIEVE US, WE DON'T WANT YOU TO KEEP THESE SUCCESSES TO YOURSELVES. SOCIAL MEDIA PROVIDES A GREAT PLATFORM IN WHICH YOU CAN SHARE YOUR ARTISTRY AND PROGRESS/BREAKTHROUGHS WITH THOSE ADMIRING NEAR AND FAR. 

WITH THIS IN MIND, I WOULD LIKE TO TALK MORE IN DEPTH ABOUT THE WHAT IT MEANS TO SHARE VIDEOS/FOOTAGE ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND IN DOING SO I INVITE YOU ALL TO TRY ON WHAT WE AT AERIAL ARTIQUE PROMOTE AS BEST PRACTICES TO SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS WHEN SHARING YOUR SEXY, NEW COOL MOVES IN THE AIR OR ON THE GROUND...WITH SAFETY IN MIND.  

YOU SEE, WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT WHAT WE DO (CIRCUS, AERIAL, ACRO) IS FUN, CHALLENGING AND HUGELY REWARDING AMONGST SO MANY POSITIVE OTHER ASPECTS BUT IT CAN BE DANGEROUS IF ONE IS MISINFORMED AND LACKING THE PROPER TOOLS, MAINLY MORE SO THE GUIDANCE OF A QUALIFIED INSTRUCTOR. 

WE KINDLY ASK THAT WHEN YOU ARE IN STUDIO ATTENDING CLASSES THAT YOU RESPECTFULLY REFRAIN FROM FILMING INSTRUCTORS. HOWEVER, FILMING OF YOURSELF IS PERMITTED AND WE ASK IN GOOD FAITH THAT YOU FOLLOW SOME VERY HEARTFELT ADVISED BULLET POINTS BELOW: 

1. NEVER SHARE ONLINE THE FULL PATHWAY/ SET UPS FOR AERIAL DROPS. UNFORTUNATELY, IN THE HISTORY OF CYBER AERIAL LEARNING, THERE ARE REAL AND LEGITIMATE CASES OF HUMANS WHO HAVE BECOME SEVERELY INJURED FROM TRYING TO DECIPHER SOMEONE ELSE'S VIDEO.  THIS HAS LED TO INJURIES AND LAWSUITS. NONE OF US WANT TO BE THE SOURCE OF SOMEONE ELSE'S LOSS OF LIMB, LIFE OR LOVE FOR AERIAL. 
2. SHARE OUR DISCLAIMER FOR ANY ELABORATE AERIAL SEQUENCING OR DROP (SANS PATHWAY) BEING SHARED, "PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT WITHOUT THE GUIDANCE OF A QUALIFIED INSTRUCTOR" THIS WILL PROTECT BOTH YOUR VIEWER AS WELL AS YOUR CONTENT. 
3. WHEN IN THE STUDIO PLEASE DO NOT YOUTUBE OR INSTAGRAM AERIAL VIDEOS AND/OR ATTEMPT SOMETHING BY OBSERVATION ALONE. 
4. UNLESS YOU ARE AN AERIAL ARTIQUE INSURED & APPROVED INSTRUCTOR, ATTEMPTING TO TEACH DURING OPEN GYM IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED AND YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE. PLEASE ATTEND OPEN GYM TO WORK ON WHAT YOU WANT TO REVIEW OR CONDITION. 
5. ASK AN INSTRUCTOR! IF YOU DESIRE TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW FROM A VID OR NEED MORE ONE ON ONE TIME, WE HAVE A STAFF OF 12+ INSTRUCTORS EAGER TO SHARE THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF MOVEMENT AND SAFETY. WE ALSO OFFER PRIVATE OR SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS.

THANK SO MUCH FOR YOUR ENTHUSIASM TOWARD YOUR OWN AERIAL PROGRESS. WE CHEER YOU ON JOYFULLY! AND THANK YOU TIMES INFINITY FOR HELPING US KEEP OUR PEERS AND OURSELVES SAFE. THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST IMPORTANT WAY TO ENSURE WE CAN KEEP DOING WHAT WE DO! 

XOXO
