Aerial silk (also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial silks, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon, or tissu, depending on regional preference) is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a special fabric. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines, and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying.
Beginner 1 will focus on starting out in aerial silks; gaining basic strength and learning the foundation moves in our curriculum. Beginner 2 is for our students who have been around for a bit longer, and are ready for stretch goals.
Beginner 2 will have a number of modules, each focusing on an extended portion of our curriculum and preparation for aerial dance. This will include Flow, Strength, Stretch and Conditioning. You will need to complete the requirements for Beginner 1 before you can move to Beginner 2.
Both Beginner 1 and 2 will run at the same time to ensure less disruption to students currently attending classes in our Beginner timeslots. Each Beginner 2 module will run between 2 and 3 months
We offer Aerial silks classes three times a week for over 16 year olds. Beginner classes are 1:15 hours and include warmup and conditioning
Aerial classes for kids:
For kids aged between 10 and 15, we have an aerial class on Saturdays between 9:00 and 10:00. Space is limited and we may require an assessment to ensure that your child has the motor coordination to benefit from the class.
