Silks, also called Fabric or Tissu, are one long piece of fabric attached in the middle to the ceiling to create two long tails. In this class you will learn to climb, invert in the air, and hang upside down. As you increase strength and comfort-level, you will learn sequences, drops, slides, and flips that allow you to descend the fabric with style and grace.
Lyra, also called Hoop, is a steel ring hung vertically by one or two ropes. At Aerial Arts NYC we teach Lyra as a single-point apparatus, (a double-point Lyra can be provided in private class). In this class you will learn poses and moves on and above the hoop. As you become more advanced, you will learn to spin the apparatus as you execute skills and poses.
