Aerials are a beautiful, creative, and challenging art form that almost anyone can learn. Besides having the most fun ever, you will build incredible upper body and core strength, kinesthetic awareness, confidence, and coordination.
All classes are $15 and $10 for open gym unless specified. All prices do NOT include tax. Classes are subject to cancellation if not enough attendance. Please reserve your spot (preferably the day before) by texting 575-613-2399.
BEGINNER FABRIC… This is a recently added class. For folks who have never done aerials before or for those who want to take things slower. As well as people who feel they don’t have the strength yet for other classes. This is the class for you. Plenty of fun!
FABRIC LEVEL ONE… This is for beginner aerialists, or those who haven’t been in the air in awhile and need to rebuild their strength and knowledge. We start low, and everyone works at their own pace and level. We will work on your strength, flexibility, and confidence. You will learn tons of moves while having a ton of fun doing so! More advanced students are welcome as well to do Level One to keep their strength and revisit previously learned moves. We will mainly work on the Fabric, but also explore all the other apparatuses as well.
FABRIC LEVEL TWO…Fabric Level Two is a continuation of strength and skills and will explore some choreography as well. A prerequisite is Fabric Level One (or teachers permission). You must be able to straddle up from the ground confidently and in control and also able to perform a 10 second bent and straight arm hang, as well as climb/descent the fabric with control and confidence to attend these classes. Level Two is getting you ready for the more intermediate/advanced classes! Focusing on the Fabric, but will also play on the other apparatuses too if so desired.
MIXED LEVEL FABRIC… Sometimes because of low attendance we need to do a mix level class. No worries, classes are small and you’ll get lots of air time as well as instruction.
INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED FABRIC… these classes are for committed students who can climb, invert and do sequences comfortably without being spotted and who have been doing aerials for quite awhile. Taught by the amazing Alessandra Ogren from Penasco theater! A pioneer as well as respected aerialist worldwide. And if so desired we can explore all the other apparatuses that are at TAG. So fun and never gets boring!
LYRA AERIAL HOOP… is an ongoing class for all levels. You will learn mounting moves, in/under/over moves, dismounts, some simple partner moves, as well as choreography. No experience necessary. Taught by the amazing Alisa Ritchie who has been practicing aerials for 10 years.
CORDE LISSE (ROPES),.. TRAPEZES,… CLOUD SWING,… STRAPS,…SLING are other toys available at T.A.G. Not sure what those are? Go onto YouTube to get inspired!
OPEN GYM. For all levels. Open only to current students (with some exceptions). These are supervised sessions but not a formal teaching class. Gives students the opportunity to practice moves they learned in class. Repetition is key to aerials!!

We use our aerial fabric that can help support your weight, ease pressure, create space in your joints, decrease compression in your spine and to we help you find more mobility. This is fantastic for practicing inversions, which in traditional yoga can lead to back and neck pain and injury over time. If your looking for a new “twist” to your yoga workout, look no further!
And let my experience of 20 years of being a LMT (licensed massage therapist) help you help yourself to relieve pain, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, soft tissue strains or injuries, etc. I have come up with many, many ways for self massage out of necessity and curiosity. I will use all sort of “tools” that are extremely effective to get the job done. We can also explore some very deep tissue work, is so desired.
