If you’ve been thinking about learning Aerial Silks — this 3-class mini session is a great way to get started!
Learn the basics of aerial silks, go from knowing a lot of moves to being able to do them beautifully, and start learning to make up your own repertoire. Each week we will concentrate on a specific class of poses, focusing on basic troubleshooting, form and technique, variations and transitions, and adding your own personal flair. No experience necessary.
