Fabrics

What are Aerial Fabrics?


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

Silks (All Levels)

In Silks All Levels, you will build your foundation with basics by working on climbs, conditioning, and of course some fun moves. Please wear comfortable clothing that covers the back of your knees. No experience required. Come have fun in this Intro and Level 1-friendly level class that can also mix it up as you start feeling more comfortable in the fabric!

Requirements: None

Hammock (All Levels)

Hammock, also called Aerial Fabric or Sling, is an all levels class. It is for students who have never tried fabric before and great for students who want to take several classes and feel comfortable in the silk. We will become aquainted with entering and sitting in the fabric, introducing inversions from the floor, learning some basic wraps, and integrating combo sequences. And we can't forget conditioning to build your strength. Hammock is very beginner friendly and fun!

Requirements: None

Attire

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.
