Learn the ancient circus art of aerial silks
Have you seen performers who look as though they float in mid-air with silk ribbons from shows such as The Cirque Du Soleil? Now you too can learn the skill with aerial silks classes in Derby.
Who is it for?
Silks classes are for everyone including beginners, though we recommend attending a few pole sessions or the strength and flexibility course to build your strength beforehand - this is NOT essential.
This aerial silks course teaches you how to work with your own body height, shape and weight in the air. It's great for toning up the gluteal (bum), abdominal (tummy), back and arms. We focus on improving your motor skills such as balance, coordination and flexibility through the legs and back (teaching you arches' and splits). Eventually you will be able to dance as though you are floating on air!
What do I wear?
Any comfortable clothing that fits close to the skin and is non-restrictive to your movements is recommended. Long sleeved tops and long bottoms are a must. Bare feet are recommended.
How much does it cost?
You have 2 options:
Taster session £10, a single session which covers Silks, Hoop and Trapeze.
The second option is to join our Membership Scheme which requires a monthly subscription. Once you have joined you will be eligible to attend up to two Aerial Fitness classes a week by booking online (terms and conditions apply - see our Members Only section for more information and pricing).
