What are Aerial Fabrics?

Fabrics are two different types of aerial apparatus generally categorized as Silks or Sling. Silks appear as two pieces of fabric. Sling (Hammock) is generally a single, looped piece of fabric. Fabrics are always eye-catching and dynamic!

Silks All Levels

In Silks All Levels, we practice climbs, conditioning, foot locks, and work our way into pretty combos! Come have fun in this class that begins to mix it up as you start feeling more comfortable in the fabric! There is something for everyone, whether you're a first-timer or a pro! 

Requirements: None

Sling All Levels

We use the same material as Silks but in a loop instead of two separate pieces, so sometimes this make it more accessible for beginners.  We will become acquainted with entering and sitting in the fabric, introducing inversions from the floor, and seeing if we can piece together moves we learn to "dance" in the fabric. Sling is very beginner friendly! 

Requirements: None


We recommend tights or leggings of at least capri length which will allow for movement but also protect the backs of the knees. For a shirt, wear one that can be tucked in or is relatively form-fitting, preferably covering the armpits.  As the silks can tear, please do not wear things that would snag them. Avoid clothing with lots of zippers or buttons, and please remove rings and jewelry.
