Aerial dance incorporates vertical as well as horizontal movement paths. The fabric has its own motion, which changes the way a dancer must move in response. The introduction of this new element changes the dancer’s balance, center, and orientation in space. Students will learn the fundamentals of fabric aerial dance while building strength and coordination. Beginning silks skills taught in this class will include single foot lock, slip knot, and double foot lock moves as well as climbs and beginning-level poses. Intermediate aerialists will continue to build stamina in the air by connecting movements and poses to creat and aerial dance sequence.
