Kids Mixed Aerial Arts - 9 Week summer session
This 9 week series is offered June 11th - August 19th, 2017. We welcome girls and boys ages 6-12 in these classes. The following apparatuses will be taught in each 90 minute class:
Aerial Silks/ Sling (1st 3 weeks)
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. Armpits and knees must be covered.
Aerial Hoop / Lyra (2nd 3 weeks)
Lyra is a circular hoop suspended from one point in the ceiling. You will learn to mount, spin, hang and bend with grace and ease, as you work your way through gorgeous combinations. This class will improve your strength and flexibility. Open to all levels, no experience necessary. What to wear: Knees should be covered. Some tricks, like elbow hangs and ankle hangs, feel more comfortable with extra padding so it is recommended to bring legwarmers and long sleeves.
Vertical Bar (3rd 3 weeks)
This class series that incorporates elements of gymnastics as well as aerial. Students will gain knowledge and strength spinning on the ground as well as climbing in the air while developing skills and tools that will last a lifetime. Students can wear tank tops and shorts or capris.
