Have you heard?  We have added Hammock to our program.  If you are trying to get strong, flexxy and toned then the hammock is right for you!

What is a hammock?

A basic aerial hammock is a fabric hammock suspended from the ceiling creating a swing that's easy to sit in and suspend yourself.  

Aerial hammocks are comfortable, highly versatile, stretchy and less intimidating than many other aerial apparatus.  The Hammock can support aerialist of all sizes and shapes.

What's The Difference Between Aerial Hammocks and Silks 

Aerial Silks is traditionally a circus act with a focus on tricks, tumbles and dance. Aerial Silks uses a fabric hung from the center with two fabrics, or ribbons, that hang down from the ceiling.  Aerial Silks is a generally more challenging than aerial hammock.  In our Silks classes the aerialist ascends above 5 feet in Hammock classes, we remain below 5 feet.  Our Aerial Hammocks are suspended in a swing position, our silks classes remain as two separate pieces of vertical fabric, or one.  Silks can also be rigged into a hammock, however, the fabric stretch and versatility of tricks will be different.  It is recommended to begin in hammocks prior to silks classes.
