Lyra 1: A2 Aviary.

  community member   < less

The Lyra (also known as the aerial hoop, aerial ring or cerceau) is a circular steel apparatus, resembling a hula hoop. It is suspended from the ceiling and can be used static, spinning, or swinging. This class is designed for beginning aerialists to gain confidence and strength in the fundamentals of Lyra. You will learn to get on and off the apparatus unassisted, as well as seated and under the bar poses. This is also an excellent conditioning class for established aerialists looking to hone their transitions and perfect their technique, without focusing on choreography. Be ready to build strength, flexibility, and coordination - not to mention bruises in unusual places…!
$12 for a single class
$75 for a seven week series
A2 Aviary, 4720 S. State Rd, Ann Arbor, MI. $25 - $150. 734-726-0353. [map]

Aerial Silks Level 0: A2 Aviary.

  community member   < less

Aerial Silks, also known as Tissu or Ribbons, is a fabric apparatus hung from above that is climbed, wrapped around the body, and/or tied to create dramatic drops, pose, and movements in the air. This absolute beginners class will teach you to climb, apply footlocks, introduce you to the flexibility, leverage, and balance used while on the apparatus, as well as how to engage the muscles needed to stay safe in the air. This class is only available by single reservation and does not have a seven week progressive curriculum. It is designed for beginning aerialists who wish to join the Aerial Silks Level 1 class, but missed the first week or more of that seven week series. You are welcome to repeat this class as often as you like until you feel comfortable with these fundamentals, or if you simply want to condition and hone the basics in an instructor guided environment.
