Intro To Aerial Silks

Each class begins with stretching and strengthening exercises aided by our aerial silks hammocks. Then you will learn, practice & drill basic aerial silks hammock moves. You may also learn beginner combinations or routines. Whether this is your first time or you are a regular silks student, you will benefit from this class!

Aerial Silks Level 2

This class is for intermediate and advanced students only. An interested student MUST go to at least 1 intro class and speak to the instructor before joining the mixed level class. This intensive aerial hammock class weaves together basic/transitional moves, inversions, flips, standing poses, and advanced tricks. After a thorough warm-up and stretching, aerialists will progress through a planned sequence of moves with ever-increasing difficulty in order to build muscles and endurance. Emphasis will include performing each pose left-handed and right-handed to achieve a balanced work-out and symmetry.

Now that you're acquainted with the basics, learn to string the moves together, learn transitions, variations and add expression! We'll brainstorm on options for movement in and out of moves to create flow. Aerial Dance will give you the tools to create your own routines! Not sure if you're ready?

What To Wear To Aerial Silks Classes

Be sure to thoroughly clean your hands, arms and legs before class to get rid of any lotion or lotion residue that may be on there!!! Please do not wear any bracelets, watches or rings and they will get scratched and will scratch our poles. Wear short or long sleeves if you want to prevent chaffing under the arms, but tank tops or sports bras are fine. All clothing should be close fitting, especially at the ankles - leggings work best - with bare feet or socks with grippy soles.
