I love this place. My instructor Shawna was amazing. Great place for newbies. If you're doubtful about trying something new here... Don't be. Go for it.
Today, was my first time attending AerialCLT and will be my last time ever coming back. I am also going to advise all my friends and family to never support this business with Kristen still working there. I came to celebrate my birthday with a group of friends and it was extremely disappointing. We signed up for the Silk Fundamentals beginner class and the instructors name was Kristen. Please never attend this class with this instructor because she's highly unprofessional. She wasn't attentive to the "new beginners" that were there, but more to the "advanced students",which I'm confused as to why they were in our class to begin with because it took away the focus from us "the new beginners". Kristen wasn't helpful at all. She would literally stand there and not be of any assistance. I never heard her say "let me help you" or "good job ladies". She only told the advanced group these things while we had to wait until she was done with them, which took a while as well. This was such a horrible experience and I'm trying to keep it brief. Then Kristen had the audacity to put her hands on me, while speaking to me as if I were a child to give me an instruction. I immediately left because she invaded my space and I didn't want there to be any confrontation. My friends and I decided to leave 30-40 mins earlier then our scheduled class ending time because we were all offended by her behavior. We left the premises and she didn't say a word to us to try to keep us there. I would like to be compensated for my troubles and my terrible experience because I wasn't able to get my money's worth due to leaving so abruptly.
Great! I took my first class today. At first I was pretty nervous, everyone else knew what was going on and had done this before. Once things got started the instructor was super attentive and I felt like I was getting plenty of personal instruction. I am so glad I tried aerial. I have zero dance experience and am not particularly graceful, but this was an amazing experience and lots of fun. Don't be intimidated to try. Sarah was great and made me feel comfortable the entire time. Can't wait to go back next week.
Fantastic business, highly recommend. Laura is incredible along with the rest of the great staff.
I, and another aerial instructor, taught workshops here, and not only were the ladies in charge of Aerial Charlotte wonderful workshop hosts, but the space is beautifully equipped to hold lots of students, has a great community culture, and a way of ensuring everyone is progressing safely while still learning new skills. I'll surely be back to teach some workshops there in the future!
