Flexibility in Flight – Aerial Silks
Our Aerial Silks class uses a specialty fabric that students use to climb, wrap, twist, bend, and drop in a variety of positions and movements. Fabrics can spin, swing, or remain static depending on how the student manipulates the silks. Aerial Silks is a beautiful, creative, and challenging art form that builds unparalleled upper body and core strength, coordination, and confidence. We offer three levels of Silks:
- Level 1 – Beginner
- Level 2- Intermediate
- Level 3- Advanced
