Activities are different every week and might include songs with actions, throwing/catching, being upside down, balances for parents and children to do together, aerial silks and using our super hero powers!

Adults will be involved their children’s learning during the session – so you’ll have some fun too!

THURSDAYS

Aerial silks | Adult Beginners

6-7:30pm

Learn to climb ceiling suspended fabric and perform acrobatic manoeuvres like they do in the circus. You don’t need to be a gymnast or super flexible to give this a go – if you have a good general fitness level, you’ll have no problem learning the basics. 

This class will also improve your fitness & body strength – we’re a bit biased but really do think it’s much more fun than going the gym!

Our classes are a bit different from other aerial classes as they are based on traditional techniques and circus skills. We’ll mostly be using the silks in class but a hoop and trapeze will also be available to complement conditioning training.

Our professional instructor will have you climbing and moving your body using the silk to create shapes and impressive looking manoeuvres in no time.

No previous experience is needed for this beginners class so please don’t be worried about giving this a try.

Where?

The upstairs gym in Harehills Lane Baptist Church.

How Much?

£15 drop in / £12 per class if you book a block of 4 or more sessions.
