We have two professionally qualified Aerial Artists at Zapphire who teach a range of classes from Sling, Silks, Hoop, Trapeze & Rope. Workshops and Parties are also available too!
Not only is Aerial great fun but classes help build a physical strength, stamina, balance, and coordination as well as performance skills and Choreography Skills.
Our Aerial classes are available for children over the age of 6 years.
During classes students work also work on flexibility and learn how to defy gravity while making amazing shapes in the air. Encouragement is always given! Our Instructors are always there to give you lots of help in class!
In class, Students receive an introduction to Zapphire Aerial Arts, Health & Safety, Warm Up, Conditioning, Cool Down and Floor Choreography. Students will start to build a foundational understanding of a wide range of acro and aerial skills with the basic levels of the core subject. Students will get straight on the A-frame on day 1!
During the term, students will expand their knowledge on the A frame & Aerial Sling/Hoop & Silk. On occasions for Summer School's and Workshops, Trapeze and Rope is also introduced for advanced aerial students.
Our classes have a limit of no more than 10-12 students in one class, this gives each student an equal amount of time with an instructor and time on the A-Frames. Coaches will choreograph a small routine with students, each working on their own individual movements and talents to incorporate into their Aerial Arts Movements.
Students are given the opportunity to show us what they can do at watching week and during events and performances, working in class towards developing a solo act in this specialism as well as working on group work.
