Aerial Dance combines strength & elegance, bringing more grace & creativity to your aerial practice.
In Aerial Dance students learn to use aerial fabric to create elegant shapes and beautiful inversions from yoga-inspired poses to choreographed dance sequencing.
Each class starts with a warm-up emphasizing strength, flexibility & alignment, and will continue by introducing elements of progressive choreography with the hammock.
Appropriate for students looking to increase strength by working in & out of the fabric, for dancers looking to incorporate new skills into their repertoire, and seasoned aerialists wishing to add more grace into their craft.
