Class Descriptions

All classes are 60 minutes long, unless otherwise specified.

Aerial Silks are a classic and beautiful apparatus, also known as Tissu, Fabrics, or Twin Tails.

  • Mixed Levels: All levels, from beginner to advanced, are welcomed in mixed level classes. Our expert instructors will modify their lesson plans to make sure students from a variety of skill levels feel challenged.
  • Youth Foundations: A beginner-friendly mixed level class geared for kids and teens. They’ll build strength, flexibility, and a solid foundation of aerial techniques like footlocks, climbs, and inversions.
  • Adult Foundations: A beginner-friendly series of introductory classes for adults and older teens.

Aerial Hoop is a metal apparatus great for showcasing flexibility, which is also known as the Lyra or Circeaux.

This challenging apparatus can be dynamic and explosive, or slow and flowy. If it’s your first time, we recommend bringing arnica gel because miss lyra loves to leave bruises!

  • Beginner: You’ll learn to build strength, flexibility, and a solid foundation of aerial hoop techniques like mounts and inversions.
  • Intermediate/Advanced: As you grow stronger, you’ll get to explore more advanced movements like dynamics, spinning, meathooks, and top bar exploration

Hammock is another fabric-based vertical apparatus, also known as Sling or Loop. Hammock differs from Silks in that it is a single loop of fabric instead of two individual strands.

This class focuses on techniques using the Aerial Rope apparatus, also known as Corde Lisse.

This apparatus is comprised of a thick cotton rope, which lends a dazzling display of strength and power. Please wear thick leggings and cover your shoulders.

These fun mixed-level classes allow students an opportunity to explore multiple apparatuses within the same class. You never know what you’ll get to play on!

This is a mixed apparatus class focused on building the strength, power and endurance needed to advance in your aerial training. Conditioning exercises are done on the aerial apparatuses so you will improve aerial skills, endurance, and get a work out!

Conditioning is perfect for ALL skill levels, from new to experienced students.
