Aerials: Silks & Hammock (Mon)
Join Coach Lilly to learn Aerial Arts!
Be prepared to get the closest it feels to flying. In this class you well learn how to climb, do poses and even drops on the silks. We will also bring out the aerial hammock to work on inversions and conditioning!
*There are no requirements but remember this is an intro to silks class and we will also be doing silks In the circus for kids class, if you are looking for some harder skills I would recommend that class! Classes will all include stretching, conditioning for strength building, and learning skills and transitions in the air.
Intro classes are focused on learning basic aerial vocabulary, body awareness, conditioning basics, and safety while training circus. Aerials FIT for adults or youth also fits here.
Level 2 classes extend learning into routines, transitions, and execution. They can ONLY be taken after at least one Level 1 aerial class has been completed. Students learn more complex skills and refine established ones already developed. This group includes cube, cloudswing, and flow/sequencing classes OR student requires an invitation from teacher (then communicated to Director).
Level 3 class sharpen execution, push students to grow vocabulary adding depth and difficulty, as well as extend movement presentation, musicality, and performance. This student population is invited to perform in gigs for clients and participate in competitions against other aerialists.
All Students: Please bring a water bottle, wear tight fitting clothes to invert (leotard highly suggested after intro level), keep hair pulled back and dress in layers for managing body temperature!
