We are planning an aerial showcase for all aerial classes in the spring. It is optional and not mandatory for students to participate. This is a great opportunity for students to perform, as well as to show their family and friends the skills they have learned in their classes. (Once we see how many students have enrolled, we will decide whether we will be having the showcase in a theater or at FDCC). There will be a “showcase rehearsal fee” of $20 per student who performs in the showcase. If we have the showcase in a theater, we will be charging $25 per ticket in advance).
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.

Aerial 101 – Students will learn basic and Russian climb on the fabric, wrist-locks and foot locks, inversions, candlestick, and beginner sequences and skills. We will focus on building strength and body awareness to do these foundational aerial skills with good form, slow, and controlled. We will provide students with conditioning techniques so they can work on building strength and flexibility at home and in between aerial sessions. The goal at the end of the 8-week session is to be able to perform in the air for a couple minutes sequencing and creating a beginner act. An aerial student showcase will be held at the end of the 8-week series and all students will be given an opportunity to sign up in advance. This class is available for beginners ages 9 and up.
Aerial 102 – We will briefly review foundational skills and sequences taught in aerial 101. Students will learn bicycle, lobster, and stair climb on the fabric, hip key, hip key sequences and drops, and beginner to intermediate sequencing. The goal at the end of the 8-week session is to be able to perform in the air for a couple minutes sequencing and creating an act using the skills that they learned. An aerial student showcase will be held at the end of the 8-week series and all students will be given an opportunity to sign up in advance. This class is available for beginners ages 9 and up.
