Clubhouse Norms & COVID Adjustments


Clubhouse "Safe Space"

Firstly, Circus Paint does NOT provide "Safe Space" to its patrons. We instead strive to provide space that emphasizes Respect, Commonality, Care, and Support and in turn intend for each patron, adult and youth, to be able to dictate and Own their own Safe Space. 

We expect that patrons are accountable to their goals and value their emotional, spiritual, physical safety. We will provide you with the information you need to evaluate your capacity to try and play, but, we want to help you to own and always carry the limits and bounds of how you create your safe space.

Need to Know about the Space

The clubhouse is an Outside Aerial Space. Every class can be impacted by weather and we will have limited capacity.

We will operate with 3-4 aerial points on a truss built specifically for aerial arts. All of our hardware is rated for 5000lbs+ of force. Each point will be about about 6ft apart and students will be assigned to use one apparatus for the duration of the class. We will also ask that students take turns with the students directly next to them to optimize the space in between.

Every student will be expected to wash their hands with soap and water upon arrival.

If there are multiple classes on a day, each apparatus will be sanitized with liquid alcohol spray and door handles and touched surfaces will be wiped with alcohol wipes between classes. There will also be at least 30mns of non-use of apparati between classes if they are on the same day.

Clubhouse No-No's

No-no to jewelry

No-no to metal pieces on your clothing, ie zippers, hooks and latches

No-no to heavy lotions

No-no to strongly scented body lotions and sprays

No-no to arriving more than 5mns early

No-no to bringing more than one guest and ideally only if they are your transportation

Clubhouse Roxy!

Hi, I am Roxy and I am leasing space to Circus Paint LLC to be able to utilize my yard this spring, summer and Fall to be able to host classes. Sometimes I will stop by to check out the space and make sure nothing funky is going on. 

I will likely come up to you and fully expect to be

tipped with pets since I am so kind to let Circus

Paint LLC host classes that you get the privilege

to take. You do not have to pet me and if you have

had a bad experience with other dogs, you can let

my mom, coach Coco know, and she will tuck my

comfortably away in the house.


I may want to jump up on you because I struggle with not being able to get

any closer to your face. This is a problem I am trying to correct so help me by

refraining from awarding this behavior. I also have my vaccines and rabies shot 

all up to date!

Welcome to The Circus Paint Clubhouse. I hope to meet you many times this year ^_^

Butterfly Barks!

COVID Adjustments

All classes will be limited to a 6 person capacity, including the coach, to allow students to share one fabric throughout class with the same person, two persons per apparatus to allow tracking and tracing. 

All persons must wash their hands upon arrival to class and before leaving class to reduce spread.

All students will be required to wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth when on the apparatus.

All classes will take place outdoors and are subject to weather.

Waiver & Release form is REQUIRED to participate in any Circus Paint LLC activities.

Circus Paint LLC is not responsible and liable for any person who believes they have contracted COVID-19 via participation in our courses.

Persons understand and fully assume all risk associated with arts activities, fitness classes, and aerial classes upon registering and paying for any activities with Circus Paint LLC.
