Aerial hoop (also called Lyra) is a steel circle connected by one point to the ceiling. It is a classic and beautiful circus apparatus that can create a type of frame around the performer.

Aerial Sling (also called Hammock) is the same material as Aerial Silks but rigged so that a loop is created instead of two tails.

As you progress, you’ll learn dramatic drops and dives.

Levels offered: Beginner 1, Beginner 2
