Ever dreamed of flying?  Learn beautiful and amazing skills while building strength and grace in classes for silks and lyra. Express yourself in new ways—the sky’s the limit!

Not sure about trying aerial silks?  Concerned that you might not have the upper body strength or other needed skill?  This is the class for you!

Explore this beautiful, fun, and challenging performance art. Increase your strength and flexibility while having fun! Learn climbing, footlocks, basic wraps, and simple poses. For people with little to no experience on the aerial silks. No athletic background or experience required.

In Intro classes we coach the very basics in a way that is approachable for any level to get you started on the right foot! Intro level is intended to give you the safest, easiest introduction to an art.

Attire: No zippers, buttons, or jewelry of any kind. Please wear shirts that cover the armpits and can be tucked in. Tights, leggings, yoga pants, etc. of at least capri length or longer (covering the backs of the knees) are recommended.

Come learn the basics of lyra AKA aerial hoop. In Lyra Intro, you’ll learn basic terminology, grips, entrances, seats, and exits. This class will prepare you to meet the prerequisites for Lyra 1.

Build on your knowledge of basic climbing and footlocks, furthering your foundation and preparing you for more advanced moves. Explore new shapes and begin developing sequences. For people who are comfortable executing 2 climbs and tying double footlocks in the air unassisted.

Intro level is easier than Level 1.  In Intro classes we will coach the very basics in a way that is approachable for any level to get you started on the right foot!

Attire: No zippers, buttons, or jewelry of any kind. Please wear shirts that cover the armpits and can be tucked in. Tights, leggings, yoga pants, etc. of at least capri length or longer (covering the backs of the knees) are recommended.

Building on foundations from Lyra Intro, Lyra 1 focuses on conditioning to enable skills like mermaids and angels, as well as new mounts, dismounts, and inversions. As you build your vocabulary, we will explore short sequences and choreography.

Form fitting pants or leggings are recommended to protect the backs of knees.

  • Solid Delilah Mount w/Vine Climb (both sides)

  • Hocks Hang (5 seconds)

This is for those kids who want to try all of our aerials – currently Pole, Lyra, and Silks – to figure out what they like, or just mix things up!  Each week this will be a mixture of at least two different aerial apparatus.

Come have fun swinging, spinning, climbing, and (carefully) inverting!  The various aerial arts are a great way for kids to learn complex coordination, gain full body awareness and strength, and work on fine and gross motor skills in a fun and exciting way!

Attire: Comfy workout top and tighter-fitting pants or capris (cover the back of the knee).  A backup pair of shorts for upper level pole skills is suggested.  Sneakers or bare feet work great 🙂

Age requirements: the soft age range for this class is 6-12 but what is more important is that your kiddo can follow instruction for an hour.  If they are self driven and focused before 13 they may be able to take the adult classes.  If you are at all unsure definitely give us a call!  We can help decide which class is right, and are happy to meet your kiddo and determine what’s best 🙂
