Advanced Silks: Students entering Advanced Aerial Silks have a wide repertoire of skills and developed strength. Advanced Silks is a place for exploration and expansion of knowledge and strength. Students will be introduced to a wide range of new drops, including slack drops, lateral drops, and multi-directional drops. Additionally, students' fabric theory will be challenged as they learn complex wrap patterns and pathways requiring increased strength and skill to navigate. The options are endless and there is so much to explore! New strength skills are introduced, such as beats, connected straddles, front and back balance, C-shaping, and wheeldowns. Students at the Advanced Silks level are expected to be independent workers and engage in their learning by working through problem solving exercises as part of their lessons.
