Silks & Rope

Aerial Rope & Silks are two complimentary visually stunning disciplines, and are both excellent ways to develop your aerial ability and build your confidence in the air.

Aerial silks uses two hanging strips of fabric – climb, twist, suspend yourself into elegant poses, practice drops and swings – the possibilities are endless. It’s a highly skilled discipline great for building core and general muscle strength, as well as flexibility and agility.

Aerial rope (also known as ‘corde lisse’) is a lesser-known but highly elegant performance form similar in technique to silks, combining the dramatic poses of acrobatics with gymnastic ‘drops’ and movement in the air.

We offer classes in silks alone, and in joint rope and silks classes.

Although some experience in aerial is always an advantage, we have classes designed for complete beginners. Tutors will support each student to work at their own pace and develop their skills at a comfortable rate.

Classes Update: June 2021
Our Adult Classes programme is back from the end of June 2021!

For the summer we’ll be running a short block of classes at our Kingswood site only. We’re still limited in what we can offer right now, but we hope to return to our full programme over the coming months and will have more available from September onwards.

Watch this space, follow our social media pages, and sign up to our newsletter to hear about classes for September onwards.
