We have a new plan for our 2022-23 Aerial Program. Aerial 103 will no longer be a performance class. Instead, Aerial 103 will focus on improving the student existing skills and strength, as well as learning new skills. We are planning an aerial showcase for all aerial classes in the spring.


We also have a separate Aerial Silks Registration Contract this year, that needs to be submitted online for all Aerial Students and Aerial Open Gym participants.

Link for Aerial Registration Contract/Form.

Aerial 101 – We start from the very beginning and will primarily focus on silks, lyra and hammock, where you will learn all of the essentials such as basic mounts, climbs, foot-locks, poses, and beginner sequences. You will also learn conditioning techniques that you can work on at home, in between aerial sessions. Available for beginners ages 9 and up.


Aerial 102 – We will build on the foundational poses and sequences and begin to piece them together in the air. Students will build the stamina and endurance needed to fly for several minutes at a time. This requires not only strength, but also a deeper understanding of aerial theory, and knowing which poses can transition well from one to the next. We will also take a deeper look at technique, focusing on perfecting lines, extension, and timing. Available for ages 9 and up. Pre-requisites: Students must be able to fully execute Russian climb, traditional climb, at least one entry into hip key, at least one-foot single foot lock, egg beaters (or double foot locks) on silks. On lyra, they must be able to fully invert, mount to a seated position, execute a straddle back balance, and be comfortable with using the top bar. Students must have either completed Aerial 101 or have teacher approval. (Videos can be emailed to and for approval.)





Aerial 103 – We will heavily focus on strength conditioning and building resistance in the air on the aerial silks and lyra. Students will learn multiple ways to get into S-wrap and learn how to improve their wheel-downs on the aerial silks. New sequences, drops, and climbs will be taught. New sequences will be taught on the lyra as well. There will be a stronger focus on technique than there was in lower levels. Pre-requisites: Students must be able to fully execute the prerequisites to take Aerial 102 plus be able to do a clean and controlled inversion in the air and be able to stay in the air without coming down for at least 2.5 minutes. Teacher approval required for entry if the student has not completed Aerial 102. If a student is new to Forever Dance, they may submit a video to and for approval.
