Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a performer in the circus? Maybe you have always dreamed of how it would feel to ‘fly’ on the trapeze. Or have you wanted to test your strength and agility using only a pole? If so, you’re in luck!
You don’t have to run away to feel like you’ve joined the circus. Try aerial arts!
That term covers a bunch of activities. If you’re feeling brave, grab the trapeze and hold on tight! Or start with aerial yoga or fabrics, where you’ll learn a whole new way to move while stretching your muscles in ways you may not even know you could! Maybe you’d rather stay close to the ground with pole gymnastics.
Some kids and parents think that aerial arts look scary at first. It might help to know that aerial artists start with tumbling, dance, and gymnastics. Once they have developed those skills they move on to the aerial arts. So aerial gymnasts are actually quite experienced. And you can be sure that classes offer very safe environments with patient, qualified teachers. You can learn at your own pace while having fun and doing something new.
Flying high in any of these classes will be exciting AND will help you strengthen every part of your body. In fact, you’ll get a full body workout – no weight room needed!
