INTRODUCTION TO AERIAL FABRIC: If you have never taken an aerial fabric (aka “silks” or “tissu”) class and are new to aerial apparatus, this is the class for you. In this class you will begin with flexibility, strength, and conditioning exercises that will help you feel comfortable in the air. You will work on basic climbing skills and will learn how to create “locks” around your body with the fabric. After grasping these fundamentals, you will be comfortable joining beginner-level aerial fabric classes. We recommend that you take this intro class three to four times, or have an instructor’s approval before you move to beginner-level classes.
