Aerial silks at RCF

Silks allow for so much more creativity and freedom than just a plain ole workout on the ground.

Silks can be used for a full body strength workout, to build flexibility or for decompression of the spine. It combines strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, dance, finesse, and adrenaline. And it’s an instant addiction!

About the instructor

My name is Sae and I love aerial silks!

I have been exploring a variety of aerial apparatuses for the past five years and aerial silks has become my passion. The grace and delicacy of the fabric in combination with the strength required to execute the movements always blew my mind when I would watch others dance in their silks in the air and I had to try it for myself.

My first introduction to aerial silks was through aerial hammock classes. “Hammock” or “sling” in when the fabric is hung by the two ends of the fabric, creating a hammock or swing at the bottom that supports your bodyweight.

The studio I took these classes at had very low ceiling height but I had a craving to try out the acrobatic form of silks (this is when the fabric is hung by the middle and the dancer must use strength and technique to remain in the air), so I bought my own and started teaching myself. Eventually I hit a plateau where I could not find much more free instructional videos online due to safety issues, so I started training in New York City with some of the best aerialists in the world and have continued ever since!
