Kids Aerial Silks

This special after school class is exclusively for 9-17 year olds. Aerial Silks is a type of acrobatics performed while suspended in special, silky fabric.  We use fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral our bodies into and out of various positions. Aerial silks are used to fly through the air, strike poses, create shapes and perform combinations of learned skills. Aerial silks classes classes combine the fun and excitement of the circus with the artistry and grace of dance. It’s a great way for dancers or gymnasts to cross condition and build flexibility, strength, and balance.
