Adult Classes & Pricing
If you have ever watched Cirque du Soleil, any other modern circus, or Pink in concert, you have seen aerial acrobatics. In the past there was not much opportunity to learn these skills, aside from running off to join the circus. Today however, aerial acrobatics have become more main stream and you can train in multiple places around the world.
Luckily Canberra has it's own aerial school right here in your home town!
We have re-opened the studio as of Wed 17 June, after being closed for 3 months. We are offering adult ground classes to start & we will slowly be introducing apparatus classes back into the schedule. Adult classes will be updated each week, check our timetable for the schedule. Kids classes will resume in Term 3.

Aerial Foundations - Beginners
This class is for complete beginners, who do not have any experience with Aerial Acrobatics and would love to learn. We will play on 3 different apparatus, silks, lyra & static trapeze. You will learn the basics of each apparatus & how to move in and out of different positions, including going upside down! You will build strength & confidence, and give you a taste of each apparatus. You may focus on one apparatus a week, or 2-3, depending on the instructor.
Silks, also known as tissu or fabric, is a long piece of special fabric which is attached to the ceiling with two long tails coming down. You will be taught how to climb, wrap, and hold yourself in positions on the apparatus. The more advanced will learn more complex moves, drops & combinations.
Lyra (Aerial Hoop)
Lyra (pronounced leer-ah), also known as Aerial Hoop & Cerceau, is a steel ring suspended from the ceiling, which typically spin but can also be used static. You will be taught basic poses and transitions below, on and above the hoop, as well as how to spin. The more advanced will learn more complex moves and be encouraged to practice their skill repertoire while spinning.
Static Trapeze is a stationary bar suspended from the ceiling from ropes on each side. You will be taught to hang, climb & go upside down, as well as basic poses and transitions. You will learn how to move in and out of positions and poses using the bar and the ropes.
Similar to the aerial silks, aerial hammock is a long piece of special fabric, but instead of two long tails they connect at the top creating a loop. You will learn how to get on the hammock, and various positions & drops with the fabric in both the open & closed position.
Not sure what apparatus you like best? You don't have to choose! This class consists of Aerial Silks, Lyra & Static Trapeze. You will learn various tricks on each apparatus, plus how to transition from one trick to another. This is a mixed level class, starting from advanced beginners to intermediate & advanced.
Our fast-paced dynamic fitness class will give you a full body work out, through full effort bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods to get the heart racing and the fat burning. We focus on full body strength moves combined with functional movement to push you to the limit. Short intervals will get your heart pumping and your body working. The class offers mixed levels to ensure everyone completes the journey together, with options to get you through. Workouts will change from week to week, including HIIT, Tabata, and circuit training. Improve your energy levels, lose weight, or gain strength: this class can help you reach you goals. Hit your peak and shred with the team!
