Aerial Sling 

In this dance class, we use different length aerial slings. We focus on gaining grace and mobility in our movements along with strength and flexibility in our bodies. An aerial sling is a looped fabric that is a safe and fun apparatus to practice spinning and inverting on. This class is perfect for the beginner aerialist to get comfortable flying while staying low to the ground or the more advanced aerialist that wants to practice smoothing out transitions and learning new routines. Training on sling will help you gain confidence while having fun. All levels welcome.

There is a short mat warm up followed by a conditioning circuit training ( that includes some aerial yoga) and ends with a short trick combo. Great for building endurance and learning how to be on new and unique apparatus. All levels welcome.
