Blue Ridge Aerial Dance

Danville Class Schedule

Monday's Technique 1 class: This Aerial Class is designed for students to understand the proper technique of the skills we apply to their choreography. Students will explore the shapes, fabric theory and conditioning needed to safely execute skills in the air. Single layer drops will be introduced in this class. Students are expected to have completed one semester of Hammock Playground 101 and to be comfortable upside down and at heights safe enough to execute the skill.

Wednesday's Playground 101 class: Can’t keep your feet on the Ground? Ready to fly and flip through the air in Blue Ridge Aerial Dance Company's Hammock Playground 101 classes? New aerialists will be introduced to the basics of flying on aerial hammocks. Students will discover how the stability of Aerial Yoga, the fluidity of Aerial Dance and creativity of Cirque translate into a fun and exciting practice. You will build upper body strength, agility and flexibility while focusing on safety and body awareness. Each class will begin with a grounded warm up, and from there, we will fly away on our aerial hammocks!

Friday's Aerial Dance 1 class: Aerial Dance allows students to take their grounded dance skills to the air! The hammock becomes a dance partner as kids gain confidence and grace with their movements. We focus on proper Aerial alignment and technique, while exploring the basics of dance & cirque movement. This class promotes better balance, boosts confidence, and offers kiddos a new sense of courage and strength. Each class follows a set routine designed to condition & warm up the body without losing all the fun & creativity that the hammock allows.
