What does it feel like to move in and suspend in the air? This is your class, designed for those who are new to the aerial experience. Here is your opportunity to learn fundamental aerial skills in a safe and supportive environment. You will practice in the straight silks as well as on the floor, developing the body skills so important to being successful, having fun and enriching your mind/body connection. We will focus on the basic skills, which include but are not limited to: learning how to handle the silks, body alignment, safe entry and dismount, basic climbs and foot locks, and inversions. With practice, your entire body, not just upper body and core, will develop strength, flexibility, alignment and stamina.

Please let your instructor know of any injuries. Contra-indications for aerial classes: glaucoma, heart-conditions, fused spine, pregnancy beyond doctor recommendation. Clothing requirements: tight-fitting; no zippers or metal; under-arms covered. Jewelry off. T-shirts on!

Please pre-register for class at least half an hour in advance. Space is limited and setup time for the silks is necessary.
