2. Contact your homeschool and request a certificate.

If you need assistance for the monetary total please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Once we receive a copy of the official certificate via email, then you may request to begin scheduling. Then we will invoice your school and then place the amount as credit into your child’s account and contact you via email ready to schedule your child into their preferred class day and time! (Note: Inspire can take up to 4-6 weeks)
5. Once our certificate is received the classes must be scheduled within 90 days or will expire.
Many of our homeschool families choose to pay for the classes out of pocket until the certificate arrives. However, we cannot reimburse accounts.
6. We can schedule classes only to the amount the certificate covers. Ex: 3 months of classes. Students will not be allowed to take unpaid classes. It is your responsibility to request additional certificates in a timely manner to avoid any class schedule disruptions.

- You will be asked to ask for 3 months of autopay funds at one time. These will cover only the amount of classes for 3 months.
- Regardless of autopay payment method, even if you have an enrichment certificate to cover your child's classes, we require a valid credit or debit card on file at all times.
- You will also be responsible to get additional funds in a timely manner. If there are late payments we will ask the parent to cover the classes until we receive funds (using the credit card on file) or we will ask there will be a lapse in class reservations.

Please keep your child home if they show any signs of illness or contagiousness such as fever, coughing, sneezing/runny nose, rashes, warts, or fungal infections.

We ask our parents to park in the back parking lot (off of Guadalupe Ave) or on the street parking behing the building. There are parking spots on Pacific Coast Highway in front of the building, we just ask that you drop off your child in the back and then find parking in the front. Pick ups are only allowed in the back of the building for safety reasons.
Our Studio Vision & Philosophy
"My phenomenal fly team and I share a common vision. A vision of a world where expression of the arts are shared, diverse cultures are celebrated, dreaming big is essential, possibilities are endless, and where learning to fly can be safe and fun! We understand that we may not be able to always protect our students from the world outside of our studio, but we can start by building a safe creative space within our four walls. Aerial arts is a spectacular art form and more importantly, it's a powerful way to ignite our students with self esteem, respect, courage, and LOVE. I truly believe that if we nurture and empower our students, they will continue to spread this message of strength and mindfulness and will inevitably create a better world for all." - Michelle Bolong (Owner & Artistic Director
