Aerial Silks (a.k.a. Tissu, Aerial Fabric, Chiffon) provide a range of benefits including body awareness, strength and flexibility, maintaining proper form and technique, the opportunity to be creative and playful in the air through choreography, improvisation, and promote proper safety and injury prevention techniques.
All classes are open to students of all skill levels. Classes start with a 30 minute dance-based stretching warm-up followed by 45 minutes of having fun while you develop your upper body, core, grip strength, as well as improve your flexibility, courage, and grace. Students will learn a range of poses, drops, and movements through the use of friction, knots, wraps, and climbs. Large safety mats and spotting are used during this class to prevent injuries.
Advanced students will practice the basics and be taught more advanced spins, drops, and slides.
Students should wear leggings or tights in this class and bring a long sleeve shirt to protect arms from friction.
