What is Aerial Arts Insurance?

Prime Insurance Company’s aerial arts insurance is a specialized type of insurance that covers your client, their employees, and/or their business in the event of an accident, incident, claim or lawsuit. If your client has been denied, canceled, or non-renewed by another insurance company, Prime can step in to offer a solution.

Aerial arts insurance is an umbrella term for all types of aerial work such as aerial silks, aerial acrobatics, aerial yoga, aerial instructors, and more. We do not have height restrictions!

Why Do Your Clients Need Aerial Arts Insurance?

Everyone in the aerial arts industry should have a customized insurance policy. Your clients might have a policy that they think provides the coverage they need. However, when a claim arises, they soon discover they aren’t covered. The truth is a lot of insurance companies have gaps and exclusions in their policies that will likely not cover some of the events or activities involved in aerial arts. However, Prime writes customized insurance policies based on the insured’s needs so they can perform, teach, or operate their business with peace of mind.

In the aerial arts business, your clients are likely to encounter a wide range of risks. For example, performers might suffer from injury or illness which could prevent them from performing for long periods of time. Your client’s studio could be sued for negligence or other reasons such as alleged sexual abuse and molestation.

In order to protect themselves and/or their business, it’s best to carry liability insurance that provides coverage in the event of an accident, claim, or lawsuit.

The Unique Risks of Aerial Arts

Aerial arts are an exciting, dynamic form of entertainment that can be performed in a variety of settings. Whether you’re a performer, spectator, or studio owner, there are unique risks associated with aerial arts that must be considered when purchasing insurance coverage.

For example:

  • The risk of flying (or falling) while performing on an aerial apparatus is the highest risk facing performers and spectators alike. This could result in serious injury or death if proper precautions aren’t taken. To minimize this risk, insurance companies typically require proof that you’ve had training from a qualified instructor before allowing coverage to begin.
  • As an instructor or venue owner, it’s important for you to understand what kind of coverage would best fit your needs so that when something bad happens at one of your events or classes, it doesn’t put everything else at risk!
