Aerial: Silks & Rope Catchers

Difficulty: Medium

Safety Warning: Don’t put any weight or strength into this – the setup is designed to remember your wraps, not to test the move properly!

Maddie shows you how to practice your silks & rope catchers wraps on the ground, for all silks and rope aerialists who can’t practice right now.

Using an ingenious setup of scarves and drawers, Maddie creates a ‘silk’ along the ground. She then shows you how to get into a catchers wrap from straddle.

Talking you through each step, Maddie demonstrates silk/rope placement, leg moves and arm placement. Finally, she reminds you how to get out of the move!

If you practice these silks & rope catchers wraps at home, hopefully it will refresh your memory! Then, when we are back in class, you’ll be able to get straight back into it.
