Open Level / KIDS Aerial Dance

In all dance classes, kids work on skills that enhance concentration, flexibility, body awareness, and overall well-being, but Om Factory KIDS Aerial Dance offers even more! This super-fun practice also promotes better balance, boosts confidence, and offers kiddos a brand new sense of courage and strength. KIDS Aerial Dance focusses on proper alignment and technique, while exploring many types of dance & cirque movement. The hammock becomes more dance partner than prop, as kids gain confidence and grace with their movements. This class is more structured than KIDS Aerial Yoga, following a set routine designed to condition & warm up the body without losing all the fun & creativity that the hammock allows. 

 

Kids ages 8 to 14 are welcome. No experience necessary.


Level 2 / KIDS Aerial Dance

In KIDS Aerial Dance Level 2, we will take your child’s Aerial Practice to a new height! Get ready for layered drops, wraps and climbs. In all dance classes, kids work on skills that encourage enhanced concentration, flexibility, body awareness, and overall well-being. Aerial Dance Level 2 classes will focus on transitions in and out of the Hammock at varying heights with acrobatics, dance, and creative movement.

 

Kids ages 8 to 14 are welcome.

Level 2 / KIDS Circus Playground

Om Factory’s Kids Circus Playground Level 2 will help your children take their circus practice to the next level.

As your child's practice strengthens so will their aerial vocabulary, conditioning practices and flexibility.

MEET THE TEACHER

Enrolling in OFSY's Aerial Yoga Teacher Training remains the second best decision of Liz’s life... the first of course, was to run away and join the circus.

 

Working with Cirque du Soleil and their outreach program Cirque du Monde brought Liz all over the world and eventually landed her at Om Factory in New York where Liz teaches aerial yoga, dance, fitness & Lyra to both children and adults.

 

Teaching aerial acrobatics to children inspired her to participate in the

development of Om Factory’s Kids' Aerial Yoga Program.
