Our Aerial Silks Skill Development Classes provide new and experienced students with a specially-developed curriculum that can transform beginners into performing aerialists! Every student starts by learning foundational basics that develop strength and body awareness in the air. This curriculum allows students to progress at their own pace.
Are you a beginner wanting to get better? Are you an experienced student wanting to learn new things? Then these classes are for you!
