Aerial silks (also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon, or tissu) is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a specialist fabric. Performers use the fabric to wrap, suspend, drop, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. (Wikipedia)
Classes at Urban Evolution
Intro to Aerial Silks
Start with this class to learn the basic skills that we build upon through level 1 and level 2. Students will be promoted to Level 1 after completing one intro class.
Level 1 Aerial Silks
Level 1 students will learn new skills every week. We have a large Level 1 curriculum that rotates on a weekly basis.
Level 2 Aerial Silks
Level 2 students will learn new, advanced skills and techniques, most of which are based on Level 1 skills.
To earn Level 2, students must pass a level-up exam. We hold optional quarterly workshops with mock level-up exams to gauge students' current progress.
Supervised Practice/Open Gym (Level 1 or higher)
Students have the opportunity to practice any skills they already know under supervision of a coach. Students may also ask to be taught new skills during these sessions. Instructors may decline to teach new skills depending on safety/skill level.
Family Silks (ages 6+)
Family aerial silks is a more play-based class open to ages 6+. Any students aged 6-8 require parent participation. No intro required; does not promote students to level 1.
