Junior Flyers (Ages 9-11)

This 12-week skills-based technique class introduces budding aerialists to the beauty, drama, and discipline of aerial arts. Students will learn how to explore safely on ground and in the air, while expanding their movement range on static (non-swinging) trapeze and silks. Each 60-minute class begins with a warm-up before we launch into skills and improvisation.

 

Metamorphoses (Ages 12-18)

This 12-week session for tweens and teens transforms aerial skills into choreography. The first six weeks introduces basic vocabulary and performance skills on silks and single-point (dance) trapeze. In the following four weeks, students develop their own choreography to share with guests on the last day of class. Each class is 80 minutes. Prior aerial experience is recommended.

The workshop (110 minutes per session) includes basic skills in static trapeze and aerial silks; conditioning for aerialists; and safe exploration on the ground and in the air. No experience is necessary.
