Intermediate Silks

This class will expand upon the skills learned in Beginning Silks. Students will focus on in air inversions, x-back, and linking poses together to create to longer aerial sequences (this means DROPS!). We will also be working to improve strength, technique, and quality of movement with progressive conditioning exercises. This class will provide students with the spotting techniques, discipline, and critical capacity to practice safely outside of class and begin working towards personal goals.  

This is intermediate level class which should be repeated until the student has mastered the skills necessary to be approved for advanced level classes, and is also an excellent conditioning class for established aerialists looking to hone their transitions and perfect their technique.
