About

Our Level 1 courses offer participants the opportunity to study a single skills specific discipline at Level 1, for a whole term.

Silks (also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial silks, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon, or tissue) is an aerial circus skill in which artists perform dynamic shapes while hanging from two lengths of fabric. Performers use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions.

One of the more challenging skills, Silks offers an opportunity to exercise your core and upper body through strength-building and dynamic movement. Over time you’ll start to incorporate creative expression into your aerial moves.

Who it’s for

This Level 1 course is the place to start if you have no experience of circus, but wanted to learn Rope from the absolute basics, as well as developing your fitness, and helping you to gain confidence on specialist circus equipment.

Once the teachers feel that the student is ready, they will be able to progress to Level 2
