About the Event
About the Workshop:
Learn plenty of fun tricks you can do with a partner on aerial silks! You don't have to sign up with a partner to take this workshop: students will all work with each other. Prerequisites: Students should have a crossback straddle, be able to invert in the air, and feel comfortable lifting and being lifted by others. While you don't have to be strong enough to fully lift someone else's body weight (because the fabric and the other student will help provide support), you should still be prepared to do a fair amount of lifting! Just contact us if you have any questions. (Age 13+)
