This is the act with the fabric that’s hanging from the ceiling, not to be mistaken with the hammock. Learn to dance up in the air while developing flexibility and strength.
While those performers at the circus make silks look easy and you may have a background in gymnastics it's not always as easy as it appears. This level is an introduction to silks and will help build the strength and flexibility needed in higher levels. Students will learn basic positions, locks, drops, and how to climb, everything you need to start your career in the air.
Students should not expect to complete this level in a single session, every student will progress at their own rate. Students will be evaluated by their instructor and advised when would be an appropriate time to move to level 2.
Everything moves up in this level including the student. They will no longer be confined to the knot and will start learning bigger drops, more complicated wraps, sequencing more skills together, and endurance.

Aerial straps are a type of aerial apparatus on which various feats of strength and flexibility may be performed. Straps are a cotton or nylon apparatus that look like two suspended ribbons with hand loops at the end. This apparatus is great for those who are—or want to get—circus strong!
Please note that coming with a partner is required for this lesson.
