ADVANCED AERIAL ARTS

Aerial arts combine the beauty of dance with the fun of a circus. It's a great way for dancers to cross-condition or for any kid to build flexibility, strength, and balance — In our aerial arts classes, students learn to perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a special fabric (silks). The center of the long fabric or other aerial device is secured safely overhead, and students practice over cushioned mats. In the aerial arts classes, students learn the proper way to climb the suspended fabric and move in and out of various positions using the fabric to wrap, suspend, spiral, and move their bodies.

A logical progression allows students to learn exciting skills and have fun while building strength and continuing to advance. Students must test out of basic levels before entering into more advanced levels of instruction.
