Silks - Intermediate I

**Instructor approval required to enroll in intermediate classes**

In Silks Intermediate I class, you will learn more advanced wraps, tricks and poses. A strong emphasis is placed on inversions and wraps done from inversions. You will also learn your first drop in Intermediate I class. Movements are geared towards aerial dance and build fluidity, grace, and stamina. Intermediate I classes are not mixed level classes the way Fundamentals classes are. The class material runs in units that are accumulative until the next unit begins. Each unit will build towards a sequence that students will test on in order to promote to Intermediate II classes. We recommend all students complete all four Intermediate I units two full times before promoting. For more information on promoting, check it out here.

Intermediate I classes are accumulative, each week builds to prepare you for the next. Attending class a minimum of once a week is required for safety and preparedness. If you have to miss a week, you will need to take a private lesson to catch up on the material. These can be split with friends! In some cases, making up a particular week is not required depending on the material in that lesson plan. First, talk to an instructor to check your options if you have to miss class for a week. If a make up can not be made, you will have to wait for the next unit to start to rejoin Intermediate I class. Some units have a halfway entry point to get you back on track. Talk to us, we will work hard to make things work for you whenever life happens to get in the way of your aerial training.
