All our Aerial Silk courses last 4 weeks and take place in our friendly (and rather lovely) studio in Camden, central London. We teach all levels from beginners (Level 1) to advance (Level 4) with a student showcase towards the end of your journey.
The aerial silks course is structured as a block of 4 classes (one class every week) so you have time to learn, digest and practice all those amazing new moves, and the tricks get progressively harder each week.
Courses are limited to 8 people maximum on Level 1 and 2 so you get personal attention from the teacher and you will be working as 2 people per silk. On Level 3 and 4 places are limited to 6 and you will have your own set of silks.
Learning aerial silks can be challenging but we like to make things fun so expect to work hard but have a ton of fun in the process and make great some friends!
Every 6 months we put on a student showcase where beginners can come and be inspired by their fellow advanced students. Students above Level 3 are invited to participate if they so wish.
AERIAL SILKS COURSE CONTENT
Each class consists of a 10 minute warm up, 10 minutes conditioning, 30 minutes on learning tricks and a 10 minute cool down. During the course you will learn a new climb each week plus one or two new moves, as well as other moves that relate to it. On Level 1 we learn moves one by one but from Level 2 upwards we start to work on 3 move sequences in order to build the strength and stamina needed for an aerial routine. At the end of each course your teacher will put together a short routine which you will perform along with the whole of the group.
– Increased strength, flexibility, stamina and co-ordination.
– A repertoire of cool, badass tricks so you can amaze your friends.
– Greater body confidence and self esteem from doing new challenges.
– New friends and a new aerial community.
– Discover that keeping fit can be so much fun!
All our teachers at Skylab Studio in London are currently circus performers in their own right (or have been) as well as having a passion for teaching and sharing their aerial skills. This means you will benefit from first hand knowledge from real aerialists as well as knowing that you are in safe hands when it comes to learning.
No experience is necessary although we do recommend that you do the Aerial Taster class first so that you get an introduction to aerial and have some of the very basics covered. For example how to climb a silk and how to invert. Please note if you can’t climb and invert comfortably, build your strength by taking approx. 1 month of Aerial Fit classes first. In this way you will not only be more confident in your abilities when you start the course but you will also avoid holding the group up.
