Aerial Silks and Hoop

DSC_8794aDSC_8766bThe Muskoka Dance Academy introduced a new program to its repertoire in September  2014 called Aerial Silks. Aerial Silks is part of both the Circus and Dance Arts Families combining; Acrobatics, Strength, Aerial Gymnastics and Theatre. Dancers learn to wrap themselves up in a beautiful silk fabric while suspended at various heights in the air. As dancers improve on strength and mobility they learn to climb higher and higher up 40′ of silk fabric. Two annual Performances and numerous Summer Demonstration Shows provide opportunity and experience as each Dance Aerialist advances their skills.  Proper technical conditioning and body awareness is a prerequisite. The Muskoka Dance Academy takes pride in the fundamentals taught as a member of Acrobatic Arts, a program endorsed by Cirque Du Solei performers.

Students younger than 18yrs must also register in an Acro Class and/or Technique Class to register for this program.

We Specialize in Silk classes for 4yrs to Adult 🙂
Private Training is available 🙂

The Muskoka Dance Academy has introduced Aerial Hoop into its Aerial Silk and Acrobatic Dance Programs.  As of January of 2016, we are excited to offer another element to Acrobatics.

Graceful, Athletic, Artistic, Fun!

Aerial Silk Sessions now include both Silk and Hoop lessons.   All of our Acro Classes also now provide Hoop opportunities to students registered. Advancing Acro skills and Strength Development makes for a solid Acrobatic Dancer.
