About Our Classes

Aerial silks are a challenging apparatus and classes are offered in sessions to allow students time to build the strength needed to maintain and navigate off the ground. Each level can can be repeated. Often, students repeat Silks I and II to build strength and confidence before moving into intermediate-level classes. Teachers take this into consideration and vary the class content accordingly.

EXPLORING DANCE, MUSICALITY, AND EXPRESSION IN THE AIR
a workshop with Maya Kaough

Join us for an evening of dancing with and on aerial fabrics, as we play with new approaches to our aerial practice. Maya will bring a fun and lighthearted approach to safely explore expression and creation. Simple, approachable choreographic games and exercises will help us discover new pathways and means of relating to music and audience. 

Maya was a collaborator and instructor with Blue Lapis Light from 2009-2016. Her background includes certification in Spacial Dynamics, training in the movement art of Eurythmy and NASM certification. She is the artistic director of Rapt Aerial Dance.
