A BIT ABOUT AERIAL SILKS

Aerial Silks are easily the youngest of the aerial arts, first appearing in a French Circus School 1959. As a final project, the school would assign students to present their existing senior act in a completely new way. One web student found a bolt of fabric in the local bizarre, and presented her act completely on these fabrics. Over time, the tail from the knot used to secure the fabric became a second leg, and modern silks were born. While silks have existed since that faithful spring day in 1959, it was not until 1998 when Isabelle Vaudelle and Isabelle Chass performed separate silks acts in Quidam that the act became well-known.

Aerial Silk is the art of suspended dance. It is grace and beauty incarnate. At times static, at times dynamic, and at all times mesmerizing, this acrobatic performance art captivates its audiences. Known by many names, it is sometimes called Flying Silks, Aerial Tissue, Aerial Silk, Aerial Chiffon, Aerial Fabric, Aerial Curtain, and Aerial Dance, among others.

Our classes are hosted by our Arial experts who between them have over 30 years of experience in the Arial fitness arts.
