CLASS TYPES

 

We offer classes for every skill level

 

 

 

 

 

 

AERIAL ARTS

 

Aerials are fantastic exercise, and a great way to cross-train with other sports and activities. Our classes are taught by seasoned instructors who understand body mechanics and healthy practices. In every 90 minute class our instructors will guide you, paying individual attention to each student’s needs. We make the classes accessible to the most beginner fitness levels while supplying challenging options to those students who want to push themselves. We focus on individual student goals, allowing them to progress at their own pace and excel in the skills demonstrated. All students start in Introductory, and through training and regular assessment can be moved to our Novice and Intermediate programs.

IMPORTANT POLICIES

 

Students ages 14 and up can enroll in Adult classes through semester enrollment or on a drop-in basis. Our adult programming has four semesters per year: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.  

 

SEMESTER ENROLLMENT: This method of registration allows a student to reserve a spot in the same weekly class at the lowest price point. A student must enroll in all dates of the semester.  

  • Make Up Policy: Semester-enrolled students are permitted one make up class per class per semester for any reason. To claim this credit, the student must contact the front desk either before the missed class or within a week from the date of the missed class. The make up credit can be used for any class in the same price tier or in a lower price tier. Make up credits are good for 30 days from the date of the request, or until the end of the semester-whichever is longer. Windsor Circus School cannot guarantee class availability for use of the make up credit. We do not need to see medical documentation or any other document in order to grant the one time make up credit, and under no circumstances are more than one make up credit granted per student per semester class.
  • If Windsor Circus School must cancel a class in which you are semester enrolled, you will automatically be granted a credit within 24 hours of the canceled class. The credit will be available for use for 30 days or until the end of the semester, whichever is longer
  • Medical Withdrawal: If a medical situation arises which will prevent the student from participating for the rest of a semester, Windsor Circus School will credit 50% of the remaining pro-rated tuition to the student’s Windsor Circus School account for future use. A medical doctor's signature on our Medical and Compassionate Withdrawal Form is required for medical withdrawal, it should specify the initial date of injury/illness or exceptional circumstance.

 

DROP IN ENROLLMENT (Class Packs) This method of registration allows a student to use individual class credits to register for individual dates of a class. Drop in enrollment is paid for with class credits (Class Packs) that can be purchased individually or in 5 or 10-packs for a discounted price.

  • Cancellation Policy: If you cancel fewer than 24 hours before the start of class or are a no-show for a class, you forfeit your class credit. This is a “Late Cancel.”  If you cancel a class more than 24 hours before the start of class, you retain your class credit, with its original expiration date. This is an “Early Cancel.”
  • Illness/Injury: in the event that a medically-documented illness or injury prevents you from attending class, please contact the front desk to cancel your enrollment. If it is more than 24 hrs before the class, you can “early cancel” and retain your class credit, no doctor’s note is needed. If it is fewer than 24 hours before the class or up to 1 week after the class has occurred, then you may submit a doctor’s note in order to have the credit reinstated. It will maintain its original expiration date.
  • In the event that Windsor Circus School cancels a class, your class credit will be automatically returned to your account. This credit will maintain the original expiration date. In rare cases, an expiration extension will be granted, inquiries can be directed to admin@windsorcircusschool.com.

Adult class credits can be applied to less expensive classes with the exception of Tier A and B class credits, ie a Tier B credit can pay for a FITclass or Open Gym. Likewise, a Tier A class credit can pay for a FITclass or Open Gym. But a Tier A class credit cannot pay for a Tier B class and visa-versa Please contact us at info@windsorcircusschool.com to have the class credit changed. From the date of sale, all adult class credits must be taken within:  

  • Single Class: one month
  • 5-Pack: three months
  • 10-Pack: six months

If a student has not arrived in class within the first 15 minutes of class, they will not be admitted into the class for any reason. Waitlisted students will be permitted to take the class if space becomes available due to late students. The exception to this rule is Open Gym where students may join anytime it is held. Please see the front desk to sign in to Open Gym. Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late are marked as a “late cancel” and the credit is forfeited.

 

MEMBERSHIP ENROLLMENT FITpass, FITpass Black, UNLIMITED M2M, and UNLIMITED 12-Month Commitment are all monthly recurring memberships that permit students to attend classes as they wish. The FITpass and FITpass black allow students to attend any FITclasses and Open Gyms they wish as many times as they like. The UNLIMITED M2M and 12-Month Commitment allow students to attend any Tier A, Tier B, FITclasses, and Open Gyms as many times as they wish.

  • Monthly Memberships: FITpass, FITpass Black and UNLIMITED M2M are all monthly memberships. This allows you to sign up for the classes outlined above within the 30/31 days of the calendar month we are in. For example, while in the month of January, you may sign up for classes until the end of January plus a 7 day grace period. So you would be able to sign up until February 7th. Once the February 1st auto-billing is completed successfully for your account, you will be able to book classes from February 1st to March 7th. You will not be able to sign up for classes for the month following until the 1st of that next month.
  • Class Cancellation Policy: If a student signs up for a class, either online or in person, they are responsible for attending that class or canceling their signup in person, by email, or online at least 24 hours prior to the class start. If a FITpass, FITpass Black UNLIMITED M2M, or UNLIMITED 12-Month Commitment student does not cancel a class and misses that class for any reason, a $10.00 charge will be assessed to their account. To ensure this does not happen, please remember to cancel all classes you cannot attend at least 24 hours prior.
  • Membership Cancelation: FITpass, FITpass Black, and Unlimited M2M are all no-commitment, monthly memberships. A student may cancel any of them at any time in accordance with each student's membership contract. If the student is in an UNLIMITED 12-Month Commitment and a medical situation arises which will prevent the student from participating for the remainder of the contract, A medical doctor's signature on our Medical and Compassionate Withdrawal Form is required for medical withdrawal. It should specify the initial date of injury/illness or exceptional circumstance. Without the Medical and Compassionate Withdrawal Form, the 12-Month Commitment will be upheld until the contract expires 12 months from the contract start date.

 

WAITLIST POLICY It is necessary to “opt-in” for emails on your MindBody account to use the waitlist feature for classes. An email will be automatically sent to the email address on your account when you are added to a class from the waitlist. Please keep this information correct and make sure to add info@windsorcircusschool.com to accepted addresses in your email to ensure your notification. You may choose to respond to this e-mail, accepting or declining your space on the roster. By utilizing the waitlist feature, you are agreeing to cover the cost of any class in which you are registered. You can be automatically enrolled in the class from the waitlist until 24hrs before the start of class so if you are on one or more waitlists, please monitor your email. If you place yourself on a Waitlist, it is your responsibility to check on your status, and remove yourself if you are unable to attend the class. You will not be automatically added to the waitlist if a space becomes available less than 24 hours prior to class start time. Please feel free to check class roster or contact front desk to see if last minutes spaces have become available. These policies are in effect whether you have been “confirmed” from the waitlist or not- this means that once you are dropped into a class and notified, we do not need any further confirmation from you that you will take the class. If a student has available credits in their account, MindBody will allow them to register for a waitlist without purchasing a credit. If a student does not have available credits, they will be prompted to purchase a credit. If you do not wish to purchase a credit, please contact the front desk who will put you on the waitlist for no charge. If you do purchase a credit but do not get into the class, that credit will remain available on your account until its expiration date.  

 

PREREQUISITES In addition to the minimum age requirement of 14, many adult recreational classes at Windsor Circus School have skill prerequisites. In order to receive approval, please indicate for which classes you would like to be approved and send training or performance videos to info@windsorcircusschool.com. Videos should be 2-4 minutes long and ideally show the student moving through skills (ie not just a backbend, but the student getting into and getting out of the backbend, not just a drop on silks, but the student preparing for the drop). Alternatively, attend the intro level class to request approval from that instructor (e.g. Intro to Aerial Silks, Intro to Mixed Aerials, Open Gym, etc.).  

 

FAMILY PACK SHARING Members of the same immediate family (parent, spouse/partner, child, sibling) may share adult rec class packs and credits. They may not share semester enrollments or any other services. To confirm that your accounts are properly set up for sharing, please contact the front desk. Sharing credits does not mean that one family member can register for a class but then another family member can attend in his/her place.
