Arial Silk Classes
Aerial Silk (also known as “fabric” or “tissu”) is a type of aerial device made up of two pieces of fabric stretched from the ceiling. You will learn how to climb and wrap the silks around your body to create various grips and “locks.” Silk sessions can help you improve your upper body strength, flexibility, and coordination. If you lack any of these abilities, don’t worry. We will teach you all you need to know to get started.
Body & Pole continues to adhere to the greatest safety requirements to guarantee that you have a safe aerial experience. To view our current COVID-19 Policies, click here.
