Aerial Fabric Basics
This aerial fabric basics intensive is designed to build from the ground up. We will get you upside down and flying while building strength and flexibility.

Aerial Tricks and Techniques
This class is designed for all students that have successfully completed all the basic concentrations in the aerial fabric basics classes (knot progressions, single foot lock, double foot locks, traditional climb, Russian climb, hip key, cross back straddle, straddles off knot and must be able to remain in the air for at least 5 minutes).
Once you have laid out the groundwork to progress safely with your love for aerials, you are ready for this Aerial Fabric class. This class will focus on technique to understanding the fundamental movements and alignment to completing new tricks. A “trick” typically refers to any movement that isn’t a basic climb, mount, or lock. They are what makes up the choreography of performance and can range from very simple movements to complex drops, spins, and falls. With the focus of practice makes perfect we will build up strength, flexibility, mindset and drill the trick or maneuver until we can all safely and successfully complete it with smooth and fluid movements.
Dynamic Aerial Movement
This class is designed for the intermediate aerialist who is ready to explore more advanced wraps, drops, and sequences. This class will focus on learning proper techniques, alignment, spatial awareness, and muscle engagement to create safe and fluid dynamic movements known as “drops”. Students must have completed 3 Aerial Tricks and Techniques intensives and/or have instructor consent. While Aerial Tricks and Techniques serves as a prerequisite, this Dynamic Aerial Movements class is intended as an expansion to an aerialist’s training, not a replacement for other classes.
