Intro to Aerial Silks (Silks 101)

Our 5 week program is crafted so that our students continue to develop their strength, flexibility, and body awareness. As students master a broad range of foundational skills, they are able to move on to more intermediate levels where they can learn a variety of drops and challenging sequences. 

What to Wear:

Students will hang from their knees, arm-pits, and hips, so we recommend form-fitting running pants, capris, or leggings with T-shirts or 3/4 shirts that cover your underarms. Loose shorts or flared pants may get caught in the silks, are NOT recommended.


These first few classes will focus on grip strength, climbing progressions and beginner’s tricks, starting with wrist locks to full open grip, and climbing with the goal of building strength and increasing flexibility.


Inversions and drops are the eye-catching, daring, popular tricks that really captivate an audience. These classes provide a foundation of knowledge of how to perform beginner drops and dives. At the conclusion of the program, the students will be able to demonstrate strength and technique in a well-executed, safe environment.
