Embrace your body! This class is for the curvy person, elder person, or those recovering from an injury.
We at Swing State Aerial firmly believe that aerial dance is for every body. We also know that when you are curvy, later in years, recovering from an injury, or very new to exercise, joining a class with your neighborhood yogi or a dance class protege can be really intimidating.
We want to make aerial arts fun and accessible for you! Taught on a combination of sling and silks, this small group class will offer beginning skills at a gentle pace, and will focus on building strength, grace, and stability while celebrating our bodies in a safe environment with people who get you. Classes will be modified to work with individual student needs, strengths, and artistry with adaptive and inclusive teaching techniques.
Class limitations (if you don’t meet any of these, please take our Beginner 1 classes!)
