Tissu/Fabric 1 – Fundamental Level

In this introductory class, we will focus on the basics:  learning the lingo, tying foot knots, static poses, and  conditioning exercises essential to building strength and gaining flexibility. Plan to repeat this class multiple times until you’ve reached a solid understanding of these skills.

This class is meant for people who have very little to no experience with the aerial fabric. Tissu 1 classes are available on a drop-in basis, however preregistration is required. This is a great introduction to the world of aerial performance by teaching you how to apply the new dimension of vertical space. Let’s play with the X, Y, and Z axises!
