What do you do in Aerial Silks?
Aerial Silks is an art form originally created for Cirque du Soleil where the performer uses two silk ribbons suspended from the ceiling to perform acrobatics such as climbs, drops, poses, wraps and flips, using only their strength and knowledge of the silks to keep them from falling.
Why should I try aerial silks?
If you’re anything like the rest of us here at AMP, you find a treadmill to be a form of torture, competitive sports too...well...competitive, and you’re looking for a fun and unique way to get in shape in a supportive environment. If your new year’s resolution is to get stronger, more flexible, or to “become more majestic” (as one of our students put it), aerial silks might just be the unicorn you’re looking for.
Is it Safe?
Yes, if done properly. All forms of physical activity have some risk involved and aerial silks are no different. However, our instructors walk you through step by step progressions, will never make you do anything that you’re not ready for, and we always spot you when trying new moves. Additionally, we utilize crash mats under the silks and make sure you can do the techniques safely at a low level before asking you to perform them at height.
Who Can Participate?
Our classes are for kids (ages 6-13) adults (over age 13) at this time. Aside from that, we have no other prerequisites. You don’t have to be a gymnast or professional athlete to start aerial silks. Obviously, any dance or athletic background you may have will contribute to your progression in the art, but we start our classes at the basics and gradually build up strength, flexibility, and skills along the way. Aerial silks in general tends to attract more women to the art than men, but we do not discriminate here. All genders are welcome; we just ask that all of our students respect one another.
