Aerial Silks, also known as Tissu or Ribbons, are a fabric apparatus hung from above that is climbed, wrapped around the body, and/or tied to create dramatic drops, poses, and movements in the air. This class is designed for beginning aerialists to gain confidence and strength in the fundamentals of Aerial Silks. You will learn basic climbs and descents, how to apply foot locks, and work towards inversions. This is also an excellent conditioning class for established aerialists looking to hone their transitions and perfect their technique. Be ready to build strength, flexibility, and coordination – not to mention bruises in unusual places…!

  • All beginning aerialists must take a full session of Aerial Silks 1 in order to be eligible for single visit reservations.
  • Experienced aerialists are welcome to make single visit reservations, provided they have been enrolled at A2A or another aerial training facility within the past six months. Transfer students who wish to take a single class, join Play Flight, or enroll in a level 2 or higher class must email with their home studio contact information. When in doubt, ask!
  • Please wear comfortable, close-fitting clothing that  allows freedom of movement and covers backs of the knees, underarms, and waist when hands are extended above the head.

A2 Aviary Cancellation Policy


Seven week class sessions

We work hard to keep our class size small, for safety and for the highest quality experience for our students. With the limited amount of spots available in each class, we are not able to offer refunds at any time. All seven week class series sales are final and we will not pro-rate, reimburse, or credit your account once the session has begun.

Missed class in a session

Students may make up one and only one missed class per session, provided they give the Aviary 24 hours or more of notice prior to the missed class. We will not pro-rate, reimburse, or credit your account for no call/no shows or more than one missed class. The class must be made up before the end of the seven week session in one of the other available classes in that category (aerial, balance & dance, or conditioning). Level 2 and 3 classes may be made up in the class level you are attending or lower. Please notify the front desk upon arrival when you are attending a make-up class.

Missed single class

It is your responsibility to attend the single reservation class(es) you have registered for and cancel the ones you will not attend. If you are going to miss a class, please cancel your reservation in MindBody at least 24 hours before the start time of class. We will not pro-rate, reimburse, or credit your account for no call/no shows. All classes canceled with 24 hours or more of notice will be fully credited to your account.
