Open Level Aerial Silks Sequencing Class

Wednesdays at 7:30 pm, July 18 through August 22, 2018. Register by completing the form at the end of this page

with Mackenzie

Everyone loves building new skills each week in class, but sometimes we get a little lost as to how to put those skills together! This class will feature skills and progressions that focus on sequencing and connection to other skills to build understanding of theory, explore transitions and expression, and build stamina along with vocabulary. New skills will be introduced each week, but sequencing will also incorporate level-appropriate vocabulary students have already learned.

This class is open to any student age 16+ who has completed at least one full class session of silks with any instructor. Class is limited to eight students each week.

Students have the option of registering for the entire session or for drop-in classes. Drop-in students should register for the class, and then will be asked to RSVP each week, with spots assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Private and Small Group Classes with Mackenzie

Gather one or two friends and come for an introductory class or sign up for your own series and experience this fun, challenging, and addictive art for yourself!

Both individual lessons and class series assess your current skill level, work to build your agility and confidence in foundation moves, and focus on proper alignment, muscle engagement, and of course grace! Limited to two silks per lesson, these classes focus on your individual needs, strengths, and artistry with customized lessons and direction.
