Aerial Dance

Taking Dance to a New Level!

(Click here to view Summer Aerial schedule)

aerialSole City Dance offers aerial dance classes!

Take dance to another level with aerial dance! Aerial training will focus on building upper body and core strength and increasing flexibility and coordination while working on each apparatus. Students will learn everything from the basics of rigging and equipment maintenance to basic, intermediate, and advanced skills on the fabric, trapeze and lyra.

Taking dance off the ground opens a whole new world of creative possibilities! Students will have the opportunity to choreograph their own aerial routines for showings at the end of each semester.


Safety is our number one priority. To avoid injury, before aerial training, students should be able to:

  • Hang from trapeze by hands for 30 seconds
  • Perform 8 knee raises while hanging
  • Hold a plank on the floor from toes for at least 30 seconds


Students must be fully covered to avoid fabric/rope burn. A full leotard (camisole is okay) and convertible tights rolled up to below the knee are recommended, you may wear leggings if you’d prefer. Full footed tights will need to be cut off in order for the student to participate. No loose clothing and no jewelry of any kind will be allowed for the safety of the dancer and the equipment. No socks, shoes or foot undies, and avoid lotion prior to class.
