If you want to get started, we offer Beginner Courses in Hoop and Silks that are geared specifically towards the aerial newbie. No experience required but you will need enough upper body strength in order to get up on the equipment.

If you're a total beginner and need some strength training plus a little extra encouragement, we offer our Kickstart Course where we teach aerial basics and strength training using the hammocks. During the last lesson you'll have a taster session on the hoops and silks.

NOT TOO SURE...

WHAT SHOULD I DO HOOP OR SILKS?
I get asked this a LOT so below is a list of the pros and cons for both of them. And if you want to come and try them out then the Aerial Taster class will give you an introduction to both.
It's easier to get started on since you have a metal bar to sit on and make pretty shapes in. There's lot's of easy shapes to begin with.
It will hurt your hands a bit until they toughen up. You're dealing with a hard metal bar - some tricks can involve a little pain!
You're working with fabric - much softer to deal with and not so painful on the body. You build strength more quickly.
It's probably harder to learn in the beginning (no bar to sit on) so you'll be on your arms for longer. The tricks involve lots of complex wraps which take longer to learn.
Thank you Skylab for all that you do. The teachers are amazing and it's thanks to you that I now love aerial so much!
Aerial is the best thing and it's the highlight of my week. Skylab is very welcoming - I think I've found my second home.
I discovered aerial a while ago and now I don't know how I would cope without my aerial practice. So much fun.
