All our classes use certified equipment and are run by qualified instructors.


Acrobalance (All Levels)

AcroLearn all the crazy, fun things you can do when your only training equipment is your body!

Acrobatic classes involve static & dynamic moves on the floor, with a partner, and with the group. We learn to work as a team as we learn how to spot correctly, prevent injury, and the importance of dialogue.

Learn to trust yourself; learn to trust others – and get to know your body in a whole new way.

Beginning with the various ways to climb, to drops, to choreographies, duo silks and even vertical theater method, these classes will give you aches in muscles you never knew you had, and an intense passion for aerial dance. We’ll build up your core, upper body strength and flexibility too.

Our disclaimer: you’ll probably get addicted.

Aerial Yoga (All Levels)
Aerial YogaAerial yoga is a playful way to practice yoga using a low hanging fabric slung like a hammock.

The weightlessness allows for deeper stretches & greater freedom of movement whilst building core strength – twice the benefit for half the effort! Poses that would otherwise be restricted become more accessible, making this a great class for all levels – irrespective of experience.

Best of all: the fun class stimulates the release of ‘happy hormones’ with opportunity to perhaps perfect any ‘Spiderman’ moves’!

Drop-In Price:  £10


Children’s Aerials  (Available for ages 10+)

charlotte 3Why should the grown-ups have all the fun?? Led by experienced instructor Ritti Soncco, we will warm up with fun games, get stronger and flexible, and learn how to fly on both trapeze and silks.

Children in this class will be encouraged to support one another and work as a team. They will be taught basic aerial safety and injury prevention. The last class of the month, we’ll invite aerial parents in for Parent-Child Duo-Day!

Drop-In Price:  £10


Handbalancing (All Levels)

Handbalancing“Equilibre is the art of balance. Practitioners dedicate their lives and practice for the purpose of controling and dominating their bodies in delicate postures, difficult to master, on one or two arms, or on their heads. Improving your balance is a difficult matter, developed in a non-linear progression and effected by kinesthetic sense, proprioception, body tension, strength, endurance, and a zen state of mind.” (Ido Portal)

Drop-In Price:  £10


Hula Hoop (All Levels)

11999994_10156137830450122_701744852_nInstructor Rachel loves way that Hula Hooping can keep you fit and trim while at the same time always smiling. She says: “It’s the cardio workout you won’t even realise you’re doing” and her mantra is: “Hooping makes you happy”.

If there is one thing that Rach loves is to pass on her passion and the hoop love. *and yes the jokes are endless!*

Drop-In Price:  £5


Pole Dance & Pole Fitness (Beginners to Elite)

polePole dance is an elegant, sexy and certainly cheeky way of getting fit with varying dance styles, regular competitions on an international scale and even a petition to make it an Olympic sport. These classes will strengthen your upper body and core; as well as develop your flexibility and dance skills.

Our Pole Dance Choreography classes (8 week blocks) will teach you new moves, combinations and floor-work based around a beautiful routine, which can be presented to family & friends at our showcases at the end of each course.

As these classes come in 8 week blocks, commitment is required if you want to learn the full routine. If you come in halfway through the 8 week block, you will only learn half of the routine. You can, however, speak to your instructor about having private catch-up classes!

Our Pole Fitness Tricks classes revolve around teaching and perfecting singular moves and combinations. These classes can be used as extra training for those struggling with a move or two in our Choreography classes, or can be taken as stand-alone classes for those who feel that they are not yet ready for learning a routine.

Pole dancing is suitable for both men and women and caters for all styles of dance from contemporary, gymnastic, sexy to theatrical.

Drop-In Price:  £10  |  Pole Dance Membership:  £50  |  Pole Fitness Membership:  £30

 

 


Static Trapeze (Beginners, Beginners Progression & Intermediate)

Trapeze

Come with me and learn how to fly! Our trapeze classes offer the variation of working with the ropes and the bar, while building your core, upper body strength and flexibility.  These classes will focus on figures at first, progressing to more complex routines, choreography improvisation and duo work. Our trapeze instructor will encourage the accuracy of figures, elegance and your individual ideas. Classes are suitable for complete beginners to intermediate students.

Drop-In Price:  £10   |  4-Pack:  £50   |  8-Pack: £95

 


Flexibility (All Levels)

FlexThis class is for everyone: from the stiff to the scary-bendy. We begin with a thorough mobility-based warm up before continuing into the progressive stretching section, which will involve a mix of different stretching styles inspired by yoga, contortion, and physiotherapy.

This class will improve your all-round performance in any of the other Inverted classes you may be taking; or taken as a solo class, will improve your posture, strength, flexibility and hopefully, also increase your understanding of your own body.

Drop-In Price:  £10


Dance Fusion (All Levels)

      Hello Nicole, thanks so much for writing. At the moment the Beginner classes for silks are on Wednesdays, 7:15-9:15pm. It’s strange you couldn’t find them on our online booking system! Did you click on the external link that takes you to the calendar? These classes run all summer, and we may have some daytime classes as well in August! We hope this helps!

      Hello! Our deepest apologies for this late response: some of our team has been on a summer break! But we are back now and in full swing. To answer your question: yes, we do ask for students to book in advance just so that our instructors know you’re coming and can make a lesson plan for the number of people who come. We also have a 24 hour refund policy, so if you cancel 24 hours before the class is due to begin, you receive a full refund from us! We hope this helps? Feel free to get in touch again if you have any more questions, and we will reply quicker!

      Hello Amanda, thanks so much for getting in touch. We just checked back with our instructor Sol, who is quite fascinated by the idea and is more than happy to give it a try! These classes were on a summer break and will restart on the 16th September. In future they will be on Fridays, 7:15-8:45pm. Is this too late for children?

    Hello, I am interested in aerial skills and I am complete beginner. If I buy the monthly membership, which sessions would I be able to attend? Wednesday 7.15pm and Sunday 3pm? Just these two?

      Hello Kate! Thanks for getting in touch. As a complete beginner, you are more than welcome to attend classes without buying a membership and when you have decided that you love it and want to commit, you are more than welcome to buy a membership! We just wanted to add this, as we are aware that some gyms require you to have a membership before you begin. We at Inverted want our students to get to know the circus skill before they commit. If, however, you are happy to go ahead and buy a membership (yay!), then you will be able to attend the Level 1 classes on Wednesday, as the class on Sunday is for Level 2. With the membership, however, you can also attend the 3 hour open sessions on Saturdays, which are in place so students can practise all that they learnt in class, meet the other aerialists and hang out! Without a membership, attending the open sessions is £5/hour. We hope this helps!! If you have any more questions, please feel free to get in touch!
