Aerial silks provide a masterful blend of strength and grace. It is a versatile art form of aerial acrobatics that include climbs, wraps, descents, and drops on fabric. It provides a fun and challenging way to build strength, increase flexibility, and take your performances to new heights. We provide technical training and conditioning for all levels. Beginners will learn the basic wraps and climbs down low and work their way up as they get more comfortable in the air. As students progress, they will explore more challenging and daring feats on the fabric, such as drops and descents.
