You can sign up for classes as far as 30 days in advance. Please be aware of our cancellation policies




Do I need an athletic or artistic background to participate? How do I determine which level of class to take?


For anyone at any fitness level we always recommend you consult your physician if you have concerns about starting a new style of training. We offer classes that range from moderate to high intensity and we encourage each student to use accurate self-assessment in determining if a class is right for them. All prerequisites can be found on the classes page




If I/my child have a disability, am I/are they able to participate?


Each person is unique and so are we! We kindly ask you to consult us to find the best fit for you.




How do I reserve my spot in a class?


You can choose to directly purchase a single class through the full schedule page or the Mindbody app, or you can purchase a class pass or membership from the pricing page. The latter does not register you for any classes, you must then follow the directions below to reserve your spot in class: From a Desktop computer: Click on Adult Classes and read the descriptions and prerequisites for our different disciplines offered. Once you find a class of interest, click "Check the Schedule" and find a day and time which that class is offered on that works for you. From there follow the directions to complete your purchase. You can also see the full schedule of classes to try something new, just be sure you ensure you meet all of the prerequisites before you register! From the Mindbody App: Download the “Mindbody: Fitness, Salon & Spa” app, login or create an account, search for Island Circus Space, and find the class that works for you! *Using the app to register is a very efficient way to reserve your spot in a class once you have a good understanding which classes and levels are right for you. Be sure to be aware of all prerequisites before registering for a class.




How do I cancel a class I'm registered for if I realize I can no longer make it?


To cancel a class reservation, simply log back into your online account, open the "My Info" tab and click on "My Schedule". Locate the scheduled class that you wish to cancel and click "cancel" on the right side of the page and the pass will move back to your account for you to use at a future date. Please note that if the button says "Late Cancel" this means that you are no longer within the period that you will retain credit for the class. If you click the late cancel button your pass will not be returned to your account and you will be charged for the class. Cancellation windows: Up until 48 hours before the start of your class: your pass will be refunded to your account Within 48 hours of the start of your class: you will be charged for the class

What do I wear and bring?


Please wear comfortable, close-fitting clothes with sufficient coverage that allows you to move freely and invert without your face becoming obstructed. If you are participating in any aerials class we recommend pants that cover the knees, sometimes long sleeve shirts, and have your hair tied up. Clothing with zippers or any other metal are not allowed on the equipment. Please remove all jewelry including rings, necklaces, bracelets, large earrings, etc. Minimal facial piercings, well covered naval piercings and small studded earrings are allowed For most activities we recommend that no socks be worn due to safety concerns. There are certain skills your instructor may give the option to use socks for. No shoes are required except for Chinese Pole class (and these must be clean, indoor only shoes). Please leave your shoes and bags to the front of the studio. Please bring a water bottle with you – we have a sink where you can refill it.
