Shine Fitness Studio's Youth Program is currently composed of group classes, private lessons, and summer camps for ages 7 (or 2nd grade) to 14 (or 8th grade). Youth students 12+ are also eligible for Open Studio on a by-approval basis.

Students who are aged 15 and older may attend adult classes. We recommend that students who are transitioning from the youth program to the adult program work with their current instructor to assess maturity level and fit for adult classes.

Students must be 18 years of age to attend pole fitness classes.

Defined ages - Tots (2-3, 4-6), youth (7 or 2nd grade - 14 or 8th grade), adult aerials (15+), pole fitness (18+)


You may cancel 12 hours before class start time with no penalty. Your pass will be added back to your account to be used before the pass expiration date. For example:

  • If your class starts at 7:30 pm, you will need to cancel your reservation by 7:30 am
  • If your class starts at 12:30 pm, you will need to cancel your reservation by 12:30 am.

The class roster will lock and not accept any more registrations for that particular class 30 minutes prior to class start time. Those on the wait list will be notified of any open spots 2 hours before class start time. If you are added to the class and do not show up to class, the system will enforce the no-show fee. If you are added to the class and cancel during the late cancellation window, you will be charged a late fee and lose your pass.

If you are unable to make a class that you are waitlisted for, remove your name so the person next in line has a chance to take the class.

If you are unable to sign up for a class due to locking times, please message the studio or call at 817.756.1313 to book.


Failure to cancel your class 12 hours prior to class start time OR not showing up for class will result in a loss in a pass for pass holders plus a $15 fee or a $15 fee for unlimited memberships. Fees will be charged to your card on file the day after your late cancellation/no show.

We understand life happens, message the studio or call to let us know what is going on. We will accommodate you within reason.

Late Arrivals

First timers - Please arrive 10 minutes early to receive a tour and introduction to the studio and the classes and communicate any preexisting injuries.

Student who arrive 10+ minutes after class start time will not be admitted to class. The late cancel/no show policy will be enforced for students not admitted to class. Proper warm-up is a REQUIREMENT for every class to prevent possible injuries.

Adult Classes: Your pass will be added back to your account and no fees will be charged for cancellations on behalf of Shine Fitness Studio.

Youth Classes: Rescheduling of classes due to weather closing is at the discretion of the studio.

Mastery of Skills

Unsupervised practice by students is strictly prohibited. Proper mastery of basic skills is required prior to progressing to more advanced skills that require more strength, control, height, and endurance, regardless of the level of current fitness or previous training.

New skills must be practiced and successfully executed at ground level with instructor approval before attempting them aerially. Students are strictly prohibited from attempting anything without proper instruction. Test outs may be required to move to the next level. Check with your instructor for more information.

This includes anything seen on social media, in another Shine Fitness Studio class, or at another aerial/pole studio. If you are interested in learning the skill, please notify an instructor. The instructor may evaluate the skill, determine the level of difficulty, and prepare to break it down for proper basic instruction as deemed appropriate. 

For students ready to level up or skip levels, a Skill Evaluation must be completed. Please request a Skill Evaluation here.


Approval must be obtained from instructors prior to any videotaping. Students may record themselves in classes for personal use only. Students acknowledge and agree that Shine Fitness Studio classes and curriculum are the exclusive property of Shine Fitness Studio and are protected by intellectual property laws. Students shall not use, reproduce, distribute, display, or sell any recordings of Shine Fitness Studio classes for any commercial purpose. Students shall also not use any recordings of Shine Fitness Studio classes to create derivative works. Student understands and agrees that any violation of this clause may result in legal action by Shine Fitness Studio and dismissal from the studio and/or termination of membership without refund.

Arriving & Leaving the studio

We recommend all students arrive 10-15 minutes before the first class, camp day, drop-in class, or private to fill out paperwork. After that, we suggest that students plan to arrive 5-10 minutes before the start of class. 

We understand delays happen, but your safety and understanding of Shine Fitness Studio and classes is critical.

First timers - Please arrive 10 minutes early to receive a tour and introduction to the studio and the classes and communicate any preexisting injuries.

Student who arrive 10+ minutes after class start time will not be admitted to class. The late cancel/no show policy will be enforced for students not admitted to class. Proper warm-up is a REQUIREMENT for every class to prevent possible injuries. No refunds issued for denied entry. 

Location of Drop Off & Pick Up
8535 Airport Freeway, Ste 200, North Richland Hills, TX 76180 - Shine Fitness Studio is located in the shopping center with Spectrum, near the At Home store. Our building has a blue awning and is an off white color. Our entrance is at the top of the wide staircase with two sets of double doors. Please drop off and pick up your child in the lobby area near the front desk. 

Students that arrive more than 10 minutes late to any class are welcome to stay and watch, but they will not be allowed to participate. It is dangerous to engage in any aerial-related activities without a proper warm-up.

We recommend that parents and guardians arrive before your child’s class ends for pick-up. Shine Fitness Studio is not in a position to properly supervise a child after class is dismissed. Youth will stay with their teacher and at 5 minutes after class has ended will be escorted to the Front Desk. For excessive late pickups (after 2 instances without communication), there could be an additional charge. If you’re running late, please call us at 817.756.1313.

For their safety, students should wear street clothes and shoes when entering and leaving Shine Fitness Studio.


We do not allow non-participating guests (such as the parents of youth students or people providing rides to our students) to wait in our lobby area while our students take group classes. We often encourage these guests to take advantage of the other services near the studio–in order to save space in the studio during busy times and help keep students focused on their work.

Amenities near the studio include:
  • Northeast Mall
  • At Home
  • Texas Thrift
  • Barnes & Noble
  • Petsmart
  • Creek Trail Park


Due to the physical nature of aerial activities, participants experiencing COVID/Flu-like symptoms (fever, actively coughing, sneezing, running nose) will be asked to leave to avoid transferring germs to other participants and the apparatuses.

It is up to the discretion of all Shine Fitness Studio staff members to prohibit any student from participating in any activity for the safety of the student, instructor and/or other students.

No make-ups, credits, or refunds will be provided for any days missed.

Student-Instructor Interaction

Please be advised that aerial practice involves physical contact. Instructors will often need to make hands-on contact to adjust students’ form and to demonstrate proper motion.

Students and parents should keep instructors informed of any recent illness, injury, or other condition that may interfere with their aerial practice.

Spotting - Instructors will always ask students for consent before spotting them physically. If the student does not grant consent, the instructor will visually spot the student and provide verbal guidance.

Mandatory reporting

Shine Fitness Studio has a zero tolerance for violence and abuse. Shine Fitness Studio will report to the appropriate authorities any situation in which we have reasonable cause to believe a student is suffering from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse or neglect.

All Shine Fitness Studio staff undergo the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services online tutorial on mandated reporting in the State of Texas.


For our youth participants: When teachers are working one-on-one with students, such as in a private lesson or in a solo class, we require that parents or guardians remain for the duration of the lesson in the same room as the student and instructor. Youth are never alone with an adult in any room with a closed door.
