More info on her advanced silks class

This class is geared for aerialists with some experience under their belts. Must be able to invert repeatedly in the air and execute a clean hip key. We will be working with momentum and themes of balancing, hanging, and falling while letting our bodies ask questions so we can get out of our heads and dive deeply into our physicality. We will concentrate on knowing our wraps and where the wraps can lead us to break habits and organize and build sequences more seamlessly.
