Frequently Asked Questions
Are there age restrictions?
All classes are open to students 8 and up unless otherwise specified. Our youth only classes are a great option for younger flyers that want to practice with their peers.
Youth under 12 need parents/guardians on site.
Are there height or weight restrictions?
Not really. You should be able to hold your full weight while hanging by your hands from a bar and fit the safety belt comfortably and securely around your waist. The safety belts range in length from 16″ – 55″.
What should I wear?
- The best clothing is form-fitting athletic wear that doesn’t restrict movement
- Wear pants that cover the knees. Tights, leggings or yoga pants are great
- Take off necklaces or dangly jewelry and tie back long hair
- Wear socks
What is the cancellation policy?
Drop-In classes can be cancelled without penalty up to 24 hours prior to the class. We do not issue refunds or credits for classes cancelled within 24 hours.
Series are purchased as a set of classes and individual classes in the series cannot be cancelled or refunded. Cancellation of the course after the first class has taken place will not be refunded.
Class spots can be traded or sold to other flying trapeze students. Payment for sold class spots is handled between students and will not be facilitated by FTM. Please inform firstname.lastname@example.org if another student is taking your spot.
Parties, Camps, and Special Events must be cancelled before 7 days of the event.
Is there paperwork?
Yes, fill out the Madison Circus Space waiver and the registration form before your first class.
Why can’t I register more than one adult?
All adults must complete their own enrollment in order to complete the Flying Trapeze Madison waiver.
What if I’m pregnant?
We do not advise that women who are pregnant try the flying trapeze because of the safety belt worn around the waist.
Do you host private parties?
We would love to host your birthday, graduation, bachelor/ette party, family reunion, team building, group, or troop in the event of a lifetime! Fun for ages 8 and up, great for beginners and experienced flyers.
