Aerial Arts Insurance: Designed for Testing Your True Strength

Remember when you went to the circus and saw people performing aerial acrobatics? It was amazing and even as a child, you may have marveled over how talented those people were to be performing in that way. It is sensuous, exciting, and terrifying to think of what could happen if someone got hurt. Instructors and facilities need to be careful about bodily injury and other liability risks, especially in today’s litigious society. We recommend that you consider aerial arts insurance from XINSURANCE to make sure you’re properly covered.

Why People Love Aerial Arts

Aerial arts include any number of things that mean your feet are high above the floor. One of the most beautiful is the aerial silks, but it may also include aerial cubes, aerial hammocks, and aerial hoops. Some people perform yoga in the air, as well as dance and much more. Even walking a tightrope or balancing on a table can be considered an art form. In every form, in every way, it is a workout that exceeds all expectations.

Aerial Arts can increase your flexibility since it is a low impact sport. Your joints will thank you since you will be basically weightless as you move and twist on aerial silks. Many people also say that there is something about swinging high up that relieves stress while encouraging you to focus more on what you are doing. One of the biggest benefits is that it can strengthen muscles since gravity is always a force to be reckoned with. Your body has to constantly fight it, which truly increases your upper body strength. The downside is that since you are constantly fighting gravity, you may at some point feel the pain of it winning.

Risk Associated with Aerial Arts

Most injuries with this type of art are not deadly. The injuries may include:

  • Shoulder and Back Pain
  • Pulled Muscles
  • Bruises
  • Burns from Fabric
  • Dizziness or Nausea
  • Injuries from falling

Other more extreme injuries include paralysis or death since you are using positions that are sometimes hard to achieve. If you mess up, you could fall and depending on the distance you fall; could be very serious. There are classes available for anyone who wants to take part in aerial arts. They all come with a warning that you participate at your own risk and the class is not to be held responsible for accidents. This means, if you want to be an instructor or a facility for aerialists to practice and/or perform, you must find a way to ensure that if a worst-case scenario happens; you are covered.
