Aerial Silks

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.
