Aerial Silks

Advanced Beginners



What is it?

Aerial Silks is the art of learning to climb, move and choreograph movements in the air with the support of the aerial fabric and technical wraps to secure the body in a position. Our classes teach Beginners through to Improvers with skills involving climb techniques, wraps and key holds such as catcher and hipkey positions. We also focus on the necessary body preparation exercises for this demanding yet beautiful art form.

For Who

The aim of this course is to further develop student's understanding and technique in the basic skills of Aerial Silks including strength and conditioning for progressing on the apparatus. The class is suitable for advancing beginners with two coaches on hand and students will be grouped into their appropriate level.

Students will continue practice with French and Russian climb, entry and exit for Footlock from a climb, progress with work on inversions (potentially climbs), plus new positions, wraps, transitions and creative choreography to bring together all the hard work.

At the end of the term you will have strengthened your basic skills and technique on aerial silks along with a variety of floor exercises to develop the strength for further progression. We will also demonstrate the importance of safe aerial practice.
