SPIRIT OF THE COMPETITION AND SHOWMANSHIP
Airborne amateur competition was created to give Aerial Divas students the opportunity to challenge themselves, unleash their inhibitions on stage, experience the buzz and thrill of performing and have fun! It is a celebration of our students and culture. As competitors we want you to maintain the spirit of community and understand how important it is to be kind and supportive to one another, and importantly yourselves.

The judges’ decision is final and anyone found to be bringing the decision or the competition into disrepute may be deemed unable to compete in future events, as would unsportsmanlike bad behaviour in the lead up to and on the night of the event.
