Aerial Arts — Aerial Silks, Lyra, Trapeze
Aerial arts combine the beauty of dance with the fun of a circus. It's a great way for dancers to cross-condition or for any kid to build flexibility, strength, and balance — and LSPA is proud to be the first studio to offer aerial arts classes in Lafayette! In our aerial arts classes, students learn to perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a special fabric (silks), hoop (lyra), or bar (trapeze). The center of the long fabric or other aerial device is secured safely overhead, and students practice over cushioned mats. In the Lafayette aerial arts classes, students learn the proper way to climb the suspended fabric and move in and out of various positions using the fabric to wrap, suspend, spiral, and move their bodies. They also learn the basics of performing on the lyra and trapeze!
The classes are designed for students of all levels from complete beginner to those with acrobatic backgrounds. A logical progression allows students to learn exciting skills and have fun while building strength and continuing to advance. Students must test out of basic levels before entering into more advanced levels of instruction.
