What are Aerial Silks?

Aerial Silks (also known as Aerial Tissue, Aerial Ribbons, or more simply, Aerial Fabric) is a form of gravity-defying creative movement featuring a column of fabric rigged overhead, on which an aerial artist will demonstrate acrobatic movements and poses. Silks differ from hammocks in that the fabric is rigged with two hanging “tails” instead of a loop or hammock – as such, silks offer less support and build more upper body, core, and grip strength.


What is Aerial Lyra or Hoop?

The aerial hoop is a circular steel or aluminum apparatus (resembling a hula hoop) suspended from the ceiling, on which circus artists may perform poses and moves on, above, and below the hoop. It can be used static, spinning, or swinging. It can also be adjusted to different heights, allowing performers to work at varying levels of difficulty.
