    I know this is not POLE related but I need some help… Does anyone know of a studio near Tallahassee, Florida (near Panama City or Jacksonville) that teaches aerial silks?

    I favor this post…I am looking for one in Indianapolis, IN- or close to there. Would possibly be interested in going back to Chicago for a weekend with the family for this one.

    shame you’re not in Wellington, New Zealand – we’ve just started up a silks class.
    to make you want to do it even more, here’s our tutor performing.

    SHe also teaches our Burlesque class.

    I’m going soon. I live in Richmond va and the closest one I’ve researched online is in D.C. Look up New York Trapeze School. Maybe they have more.

    MAN! Last night I was doing a search on aerial stuff- to find out about home rigs and I came across a site that had some links. I wish I could remember.

    Try googling aerial silks or aerial hoop. Aerial arts seems to be going mainstream so even if you cannot get silks I’d suggest trapeze or aerial hoop/lyra.

    I did an Aerial Silks workshop here in the UK a few weeks back. It’s so much fun, but I didn’t expect it to be so difficult! The amount of upper body strength required is immense. Going to do it again tho

    if you can’t find a place that does lessons, buy some and learn yourself! We don’t have anyone that does them in the island I live on, so I bought some and am learning at the mo, and they aren’t too expensive either! Plus there is a really good french book on how to do all the move / drops

    I am having my fiance install silks in the living room near my pole. If I wanna do silks I can take my pole down and vise versa. He is also going to put a static trapeze on the patio for me! I wish my parents had put me in circus when I was a kid. It seems like I am making up for lost time trying to do this now when I will be 30 in a couple of months!

    cbr600girl – I know what you mean! LOL I’m 50 and take a pole class once a week. I took a trapeze workshop a few weeks ago and start a beginner’s aerial silks class in November. My friends ask if I’m going to run away with the circus LMAO!

    I have been taking Aerial classes since the second or third week of August and while I am not too good right now, I am seeing definite benefits with taking the class in conjunction with pole dancing. I am loving it. It’s harder than pole but with Aerial arts you are required to use your strength because they move, so I am noticing that I have increased strength and stamina on the pole, plus some moves that I just couldn’t do before I can.

    I love silks – so pretty – I have been taking tissu lessons here and there but it is sooooooooo hard I have also been taking aerial yoga – which is much easier but really great for getting good stretches in. There are lots of home aerial yoga units that you could look into online to maybe use as a starting point.

    Also there are a bunch of aerial groups or circus groups on Facebook you could join for info.

    plus here are a few links:

    It’s in Chicago, but it’s amazing! They offer a free silks class the second Saturday of each month.

    I went to their free trapeze class and it’s so much fun.
