Our beginners’ silks Monday class is ideal for building confidence in the air. You will learn basic holds and locks, as well as practicing climbing the silks and building up strength to progress to more advanced moves. Some experience in static trapeze or another aerial discipline would be an advantage but is not a necessity, and tutors are happy to support complete newcomers to aerial circus.
