Develop your whole child in our clean, fun, enriching environment

Instructional Classes for Girls

Even though Aerial Express has competitive teams we believe that EVERY child should be allowed the chance to reach their full potential. Here at Aerial Express our philosophy is teach it "right" the first time. This may sometimes take longer as there is no shortcut to learning the correct technique. This patience serves children well when their good basics allow them to learn more advanced skills without being stuck as they move levels.

 Our coaches are selected for their genuine love of children as well as their technical expertise, Saying it another way, if you are concerned about the character of the people who mentor your children, Aerial Express is the clear best choice for your kids. We are looking to develop your child inside and out!
