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.
If you have never "flown" on the aerial silks before, this is the class for you! It is designed for absolute beginners and will 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 will repeat the same curriculum each week, focusing on basic climb, foot lock, and hollow body position, so you can join at any time. Once you've mastered the basics, you'll be ready to move on to the next class level. Please register via the Aviary's website, class size is limited. Use promo code firstflight for $5 off your first class! =)

In these sessions, participants will discover how writers from around the world see the world and how they perceive the past, the present, and the future of their societies. Do we, educated Americans, see our world in ways similar or different from the ways those writers see it? On what do we agree or disagree with these writers? Let us fly together with these writers and look at the world through their perceptive eyes.
Our first journey will be in the world of a novel titled Exit West. Our tour guide will be the book's author Mohsin Hamid. Please come to the first meeting having read the novel and ready to fly… Subsequent readings/discussions will be determined at the first meeting, according to the group's interests.
This study group will meet 1:30-3:30, on September 12, October 10, November 14, February 5, 2019, March 5,2019, and April 2, 2019.
