What is Aerial Silks?
Silks is a beautiful combination of circus and dance. Sophisticated and elegant, the combination of strength, flexibility and artistry will get you floating on air while toning the entire body. This class is for beginners. Our instructors are professional aerial silk artists and our equipment is installed by Cirque contractors.
Aerial dance is the broad term for a style of modern dance that incorporates the use of hanging equipment, also called aerial apparatuses. Popularized by Cirque du Soleil, the concept of aerial arts as a dance form and theatrical expression rather than a purely gymnastic movement art.
