One of the most common reactions to people who see aerial silks for the first time is, “I could never do that. I have no upper body strength.” Fortunately for all of us, this could not be farther from the truth. Silks are a great way to build strength, coordination, and flexibility all over the body, whether you’re a longtime athlete, or a newcomer looking for an exciting experience. Climbs, tricks, and choreographed sequences are taught at various levels to improve fitness and performance technique, making these classes suitable for hobbyists, fitness enthusiasts, and even those looking to start (or add to) their circus career. Classes are limited in size so that every student receives plenty of attention and air time, while also having plenty of recovery time in between turns.
***Make sure this is the class you’re looking for! Aerial silks is a circus art that involves learning tricks and poses for either fitness or performance purposes. AIReal Yoga is a yoga class that calms and stretches the body using an aerial hammock as a prop.***
