Intro to Aerial
Intro to Aerial is for students who are new to aerial arts. We’ll cover basic skills on multiple aerial apparatuses, such as aerial silks (tissu), aerial hoop (lyra), and static trapeze. Each class will end with a few conditioning and stretching exercises to help develop the strength, flexibility, and body awareness required to excel at aerial arts. No experience necessary!
Aerial Silks • Level 1
Aerial silks (aka tissu, fabric, ribbon, is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. The fabric is hung as two pieces.
- French climb (15 ft)
- Russian climb (15 ft)
- Single & double footlocks in the air
- Can invert cleanly in the knot
Aerial Silks • Level 2
Take your silks to the next level
- One pull-up
- French climb to the top
- Russian climb to the top
- Can invert in the air (bent knees okay)
- Catcher's lock
- Hipkeys in the air
- Long hang for minimum 15 seconds
Aerial hammock (also called aerial sling or cradle) is like an aerial silk, but tied in a loop instead of with two tails—students can practice their silks tricks and aerial hoop tricks, as well as many poses and drops unique to hammock. Students will learn poses from sitting, standing, and hanging, as well as transitions between them. As students become comfortable, they will add drops and spinning. Each class will finish with conditioning and a stretch. This class is suitable for all levels.
Aerial Hoop & Trapeze • Level 1
Aerial Hoop & Trapeze • Level
Aerial straps are two thick straps of materials with loops to hang from. This apparatus is great for those who are—or want to get—circus strong! Straps students will learn tricks and conditioning exercises to build the muscle necessary to master strength-based skills.
Please note that coming with a partner is required for this class.
Aerial Bungee (Ages 13+, or by instructor permission)
Aerial bungee is a fun apparatus where students wear a harness attached to bungee cords. Bounce high, and learn to flip forwards and backwards. Bungee is great for learning body awareness and building core stability.
