Youth Aerial Silks

Does your child love to hang upside down? Love to monkey around? The aerial silks, also known as tissue, is a fun fabric apparatus that students can climb and wrap themselves in. Your child will learn to fly and dance creatively up in the air! Students will also increase strength and flexibility as they are taught  basic hangs, climbs, locks, inversions. Class time includes basic yoga warm-ups, conditioning games on the silks, instruction of skills and poses in the safety of an aerial nest.

What should I wear?

Leotards, unitards, tights, and/or other tight-fitting clothing, etc….Yoga pants work great, and you want a top that isn’t going to ride up over your head when you invert. You will want to cover the midsection and the backs of the knees. Please do not wear jewelry as it may snag or rip the silks. No shoes needed and remember your water bottle!’
