Aerial hammock, similar to silks and sometimes recommended for beginners. The hammock is essentially looks like an upside down silk with the tails tied together at the top and suspended from the ceiling.
Traditionally made from silk, a variety of synthetic materials are used these days, Tricot is the most common the length can vary.
During a performance, artist climb, wraps, and drops themselves in and out of the fabric, creating beautiful, graceful movements in the air. Training aerial silks builds strength, flexibility, and control.
Lessons are either 55-85 mins in length. All lessons begin with a guided warm-up by the instructor to prepare and help to prevent injuries.
During a lesson new skills are taught, old skills are reviewed, put together and developed into acts for those that desire and work towards them.
In our constant effort to mitigate injury we conclude each lesson with a cool down which can include conditioning and/or stretching.
