Aerial Sling
5.30pm – 7pm
£12

Please book half a term in advance.

Aerial sling – also known as aerial hammock – is a new and increasingly popular aerial circus discipline that uses a giant loop of aerial silk. It draws from both trapeze and aerial silks vocabulary to create beautiful static poses or dynamic sequences. Sling is a great entry point for aerial circus as it’s one of the more comfortable pieces of apparatus to start learning how to make shapes in the air!

Over the course of each half term we will work on developing strength, core technique and vocabulary and learning short sequences.

Beginners are welcome and no experience necessary. Booking is essential, please contact helen@smallworld.org.uk 01239 615 952.
