What is it?
A unique and challenging workshop in which you will use trapeze, aerial hoop, cocoons and silks, building strength and technique. You will work in a small group with people of similar experience. After a warm up with special attention to backs, necks, hands and forearms your group will rotate around the four pieces of aerial kit. You will learn good technique, new skills and have time to practice.

Aerial is a great way of keeping fit, improving mobility and having fun! Improving strength is one of our main focuses in aerial and you will get a full body workout from a class. Aerialists are especially strong in their upper bodies and core.

PLEASE NOTE - No latecomers will be admitted as essential health & safety information/techniques are given during the warm up.

Who is it for?
Anyone age 55+ who is up for the challenge and joy of hanging upside down - total beginners welcome

What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing, which should cover the backs of your knees, torso and armpits. Please avoid wearing zips, buttons or jewellery, and avoid long nails, to any Hang workshop as they can damage the equipment.
