AERIAL SILKS classes consist of a group warm-up followed by conditioning on the silks, which focuses on building strength and endurance. The class then progresses to choreography or ‘tricks’ on the silks where the student will learn different climbs, locks, keys and eventually the exciting and impressive ‘drops.’
At the end of each class the students break into small groups and perform a short ‘routine’ that consists of choreography that they have learned that day in class. This is designed to foster musicality and a sense of artistry in order to encourage the student to focus on the performance aspect of Aerial Arts rather then just the tricks.
