Silks - Fundamentals

Aerial Silks classes are for those that are looking to learn tricks, poses, and eventually choreography on aerial silks. First timers are more than welcome. And guess what... you do NOT need to be able to do a pull up before trying a class! We promise. Classes focus on building strength and flexibility through a strong cardio workout. Movements are geared towards aerial dance and build fluidity, grace, and stamina.

Aerial Silks Classes are offered every day of the week at our Uptown Studio.

Our drop-in classes are 100% beginner friendly. All Fundamentals level classes are mixed level which means you move at your own pace, not the pace of the class. We have a set curriculum that we guide every student through to give everyone a solid foundation and understanding of the basics.

5 Things to Expect in Your First Aerial Class.
Prerequisites None. Not even a pull up. These classes are perfect for beginners and first timers. Ages 15+ If under 18, parent/guardian waiver must be signed prior to participation. What to wear Snug fitting clothes that cover the backs of your knees and midriff. You *may* be going upside down, so make sure everything is tucked safely into place (If clothing is not appropriate, participation will not be permitted due to safety.) The fabric looks comfy, but can easily burn your skin. Men, here is some clothing help for you. Pre-existing conditions and injuries Anyone is welcome to try classes no matter your weight, size, or ability. We want everyone who has the desire to try aerial to visit us. But we also want to be transparent—we have a responsibility for the safety and health of our students. We hang from wrists, elbows and shoulders a lot. Any pre-existing injuries or conditions can be exacerbated and lead to long-term damage because connective tissue can be fragile. If you have any pre-existing health conditions, please carefully consider whether aerial is right for you.
