Aerial Silks

Advanced Improvers



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

Our classes are suitable for all adult ages, levels and backgrounds. We have classes deigned for different levels: Complete Beginners / Advanced Beginners and Improvers. Students are matched to their class level and encouraged to develop at their own pace to make sure they build confidence and strength in a safe manner.


Programme runs in 6 week terms. Individual class duration is 1.15 hrs. Morning aeria on Mondays currently run as a drop in programme (pre-register online)

Introduction Classes are also available on Wednesday evenings from 8pm - 9.30pm. Please see our Introduction Class page for the upcoming schedule of classes.
