Perhaps you are eager to take your first baby climb into the air or maybe you are wanting to expand your established aerial practice. Whatever your level of experience, we have plenty of options for you! Our instructors are patient, experienced, and excited to support you in your goals.
We offer both regular group classes and private lessons in silks, lyra, and dance trapeze.
This ongoing class is meant to introduce beginners to the world of aerial silks, but higher level aerialists are always welcomed to brush up on their skills here! We will spend our 75 minutes together learning and perfecting some of the most important concepts and movements to grow your aerial abilities to the next level.
Prerequisites: the desire to grow oneself, learn a new skill, and get stronger in the process. Also, must want to have fun!
By invitation from our instructors, this class will be taking what we learned in the foundations class and going deeper. We will start our journey into theory by building sequences and taking some time to safely explore what we know to find new and unique pathways to the same shapes we already know. This class runs in series of 4 week increments. It is suggested to be present once a week.
Prerequisites: Must have instructor invitation to join. It is suggested to be able to hip key in the air, invert in the air and straddle in the air to join. Instructor discretion.
Dance Trapeze Foundations:
This class focuses on building the foundational moves for dance trapeze. We will learn basic concepts and forms to strengthen our knowledge and bodies to prepare us for safe exploration in the future for our layering classes.
Dance Trapeze Layering 1:
In this class, we will be learning to layer and sequence by using our foundational moves. In order to participate in this class, you must have a firm understanding of trapeze foundations.
Lyra – Lyra is a metal hoop that comes in different sizes and number of rig points. This apparatus is fun because it stays the same shape while you move and transition your body around it. Poses and movements can be done above, inside and below the hoop, creating tons of options for creativity. It’s a little painful at first but your body does get accustomed to that pretty quickly.
For lyra classes, we recommend that you wear clothing to cover your midriff and the backs of your knees because when starting out, that bar can hurt!
Lyra Foundations (4 week course) – You’ve seen this big metal hoop and the potential movement that can be created on it. Lyra Foundations is a cumulative 4 week class created for you to get to know the lyra and learn some foundational moves and body mechanics to make your hoop journey a happy one. We will focus on moves inside the hoop, as well as entrances and exits. There are no prerequisites for this class and anyone can join!
Lyra Layering 1 – Now that you’ve gotten somewhat comfortable with the aerial hoop in Lyra Foundations, take your skills up a level with Lyra Beginnings. Here, we really start to build up the strength it takes to safely explore and transition in and out of different poses that you will learn. We will add onto our list of entrances and exits, as well as deepen our knowledge of hoop moves, including the beginnings of momentum work.
This is a 4 week series but can be treated as standalone class. It is NOT required that you attend all four weeks in the series.
Prerequisites: It’s recommended that you join after taking Lyra Foundations but NOT required if you have some lyra experience.
Lyra and Silks Choreography
If you’ve ever seen beautiful aerial performers and thought to yourself, ‘I would love to be able to perform like that,’ now’s your chance to learn a unique choreography!
In order to be in this class, you must be able to invert multiple times in the air, be able to execute moves in the air for 3 minutes, and have a very strong knowledge of basic wraps. This is a series class, which builds into a full choreography on the final week.
