Aerial Hammock is a type of aerial acrobatics that involves performing movements and poses on a suspended fabric sling. The performer uses the fabric to support and create shapes, often incorporating flips, spins, and drops to create a visually stunning display of strength and grace. Unlike aerial silks, which are two separate ribbons, the aerial hammock is one continuous loop of fabric that can be adjusted to different heights and configurations.
Aerial Silks is a performance art that involves acrobatic movements while suspended in the air from fabric ribbons. Performers execute climbs, wraps, and poses on the silks while suspended in the air, creating a visually stunning and graceful display of strength and artistry. Aerial Silk classes are more difficult than aerial hammocks. If you are a beginner, we suggest starting with a hammock class to learn the basics and gain strength.
