Aerial silk performances are awe-inspiring. Audiences are thrilled with the stunts and charmed the graceful movements. It is a difficult art form to master given the physical demands. Imagine being suspended in the air with nothing but long pieces of textile to hold onto. The lack of rigidity of the material means that it is inherently unstable. You would have to be incredibly strong to stay balanced and on point the whole time.
It may seem daunting but remember that every single one of the performers were once a clueless beginner as well. They were able to reach their current level because of dedication and passion for the art. They trained countless hours to achieve the strength and skills necessary to move with grace with the silk. You can follow their footsteps by taking the aerial silks classes Sutherland Shire studios are offering.
