Aerial Silks combines the grace and fluidity of dance with the power and acrobatics of gymnastics. This sport challenges the body and mind, requiring not only physical strength, but also critical thinking to fully understand and master the skills.
We pride ourselves in partnering with our parents so that we can offer each family the best experience possible. We offer a unique way for parents to stay connected to their child's progress through Skill Tracker. This system allows coaches to update student skill progress and send updates to parents monthly through email. Please be sure to subscribe to receive emails so you can get monthly updates on your student's progress.
If you would like to be evaluated for boys gymnastics, aerial silks, or dance, please email email@example.com to be directed to the correct person.
Intro & Strength classes are for all new students to the aerial program. This class introduces students to the importance of a proper warm-up and cool-down, builds strength and flexibility, and acclimates students to the apparatus. Students will learn how to safely climb and support their body on the fabric. After the students demonstrate these skills, they will begin learning foundational skill sets, like foot-locks, hip-keys, and different styles of wraps.
Blend classes are for athletes that already have some experience with some aerial skill sets, but not all of them. The classes will have a monthly focus, allowing them an opportunity to continue expanding on the skills they know in some areas while getting introduced to new areas. The athlete will also be introduced to more advanced climbs and challenging strength exercises.
Skills classes are for students who have experience in foot-locks, hip-keys, and wraps. There will be a monthly focus on each skill set, with ten minutes of every class open at the end for the athletes to review, clean, and explore anything we didn't focus on that day. Every athlete has different strengths and experience levels with aerial, so students will be paired with others working on the same skills, with some variety between pairs occasionally. This will allow personalized training for the athletes without being too time consuming for a 50 minute class.
Adult classes are for athletes ages 16+ who have limited or no experience with aerial. Whether you want to learn cool tricks to show off to your friends or just have fun and stay active, we individualize the curriculum to meet your interests and goals. If you are looking to take a class with your 8-15 year old child, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to get set up. You will be partnered with your child to ensure they don't get in the way of the other adults.
