How does TFAF Academy work?

Academy is sold in sessions that are based off of the school year calendar. There are 3 trimesters per year, with 3 sessions in each trimester. The session lengths can vary from 4-7 weeks. Pricing works out to be $60 per week. Students that commit to the entire year receive 10% off Academy pricing.

TFAF Academy Students receive:

  • Unlimited memberships ($137 per month value) which allow access to gym facilities/amenities; as well as ongoing fitness, yoga, and dance classes including aerial drop in classes and open gym sessions.
  • Enrollment in up to 6 of our commitment based courses at a time. In order for TFAF Academy to be financially worthwhile, students should take at least two commitment based courses per week.
  • 10% discount on workshops hosted at our studio.
  • Early registration and an additional 10% discount on summer circus camps.

Each trimester, Sessions I & II are dedicated to skill building and Session III is dedicated to performance development. There will be performance opportunities at the end of the Fall Trimester and Winter/Spring Trimester at our studio events (The Holiday Bazaar and A Day of Healing Arts, respectively).

During Sessions I & II, it is recommended that students attend at least one aerial skill based class per week and at least one conditioning, dance, or other skill based class per week. It is imperative for all levels that students build solid foundations before performing, and even seasoned aerialists need to revisit and refine their basic skills and conditioning to further develop their performances.

During Session III, it is recommended that students attend at least one aerial skill based class a week and at least one performance based class per week. It is required that a student has completed at least one skills based course before performing at the Holiday Bazaar or A Day of Healing Arts. There may be additional performance-focused courses that students are required to attend in order to perform at certain events.

The Summer Trimester scheduling is different and will coordinate with our Summer Circus Camps. There will be no regular weekly enrollments during this trimester but Academy students will get early-registration and an additional 10% discount on circus camps.

Students MUST pre-enroll in classes to attend. Enrollment is required through the MindBody app/desktop or our website TahoeFlow.com. For help with enrollment please email Admin@TahoeFlow.com. Youth classes will be canceled for the day if the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District calls a snow/smoke day. No credits or refunds will be given for inclement weather cancellations.
