AERIAL SILK CLASSES
Check out our Aerial Silk classes in action…
Aerial Stars (7-12 years)
Aerial Silks is a form of aerial acrobatics that allows one to climb and do many tricks from 2 hanging fabrics suspended from the ceiling. This aerial silks class is aimed at Aerial Stars ages 7 and up. They will learn many fun skills and techniques in order to master the silks safely and effectively. In the class the kids will gain strength, flexibility and endurance. They will also have fun creating their own routines and playing games in order to learn proper technique.
In this 60-minute class, the Aerial Stars will complete a fun 15-minute warm up, do partner conditioning and learn exciting skills. At the end of class we will have a cool down to relax the muscles and gain flexibility. Each skill they learn in this class will build on the other to ensure that it stays in their memory and children develop to harder skills. At the end of each term we will have a small performance to show the parents!
*Proper attire is required for this class to avoid fabric burns or clothing caught and torn in the silks. This includes leggings past the knees and a tight fitting workout top or leotard. Your child will also need a water bottle.
