Learn to move with Strength, Style and Grace
Aerial Silks, also known as ribbons, consists of two pieces of fabric suspended from the ceiling.
Silks come in all lengths but are most effective when hung from a good height. Aerial Arts Studio is purpose-built and has been designed to hang silks at 6 meters high! This creates huge scope for dazzling tumbles and drops to be performed safely and effectively.
Silks with Aerial Arts Studio
Aerial Silks is the most challenging piece of apparatus; however, lessons with Aerial Arts Studio are structured strategically to make them as accessible as possible for everyone. To speed up rates of progress in Aerial Silks, Aerial Arts Studio recommends students also attend Aerial Hoop, Pole Fitness or Aerial Circuits, to build strength and agility.
Aerial Silks Instructor and owner of Aerial Arts Studio Hannah Selden, is highly qualified and experienced in Aerial Silks. Hannah won UK Aerial Championships Instructor, Kent Heat in Aerial Silks (2020). Hannah takes ‘Safety in the Studio’ very seriously, therefore all students learn at a steady but progressive rate, enabling everyone to feel comfortable and confident in learning new poses and drops.
Liam is also a highly experienced Aerial Silks instructor who will be seen instructing Saturday mornings! Liam is a lot of fun and popular with the children. His most favourite element to teach in Aerial are the big drops in Silks! He creates fun, engaging sessions, while ensuring maximum safety.
