Learn the graceful and mesmerising performance art of Aerial Silks. Learn to climb, balance and fly in this awe inspiring aerial genre. This apparatus involves two pieces of fabric which can be used to wrap, spin and drop from. A beautiful art form to learn, making different shapes and patterns in the air, made popular recently by cirque productions all over the world.
Aerial hoop is a solid steel circular ring that allows students to spin and swing in the air, creating beautiful lines and smooth transitions through the transferring of body weight, which allows students to fasten or slow their spin.
Aerial Hammock uses the same fabric as aerial silk however it is looped to create a cocoon. Beautiful shapes are creats inside as well as outside the aerial hammock.The Aerial Hammock is made popular by pop stars such as Pink and Anti-Gravity yoga developed by Christopher Harrison of Anti-Gravity entertainment New York City.
My daughter has been doing aerial at Industry Aerial Arts going on 4 years now. She absolutely loves it! I love watching her in the air and seeing how far she has come. The end of year showcase is amazing and you can see the dedication put into it by both the students and staff. Such a professional school where you feel part of the family and not just another number. Tammy and the team are so supportive and encouraging and I highly recommend IAA if you are looking for an aerial school.
Kylie PariStudents Mother
My eldest daughter (12) has been learning silks at IAA for 4 years. My 10 year old started hoops, then silks, 2 years ago after seeing how much her sister loved it. Their coach, Tammy, has a deep passion for and love of aerial work which she shares with her students, instilling in them both confidence in what they are doing and courage to attempt and master new challenges. The end of year performance is a show stopper, involving all students, and a must see.I would recommend IAA, Tammy and her team to anyone wishing to try aerial arts.
Andrea SeppeltStudents Parent
Industry Aerial Art’s aerial silk classes are the high point of my daughter’s week. She loves the skills she’s learning, the friendships she’s made – and spending lots of time in the air. After 5 years she’s still attending classes and loving it! Thanks Tammy for bringing her such joy and pride- not to mention physical strength. In her words: “At IAA it’s about individual attention and fun, and I feel I’ve progressed a lot in fitness and aerial skills.
Jayne JenningsStudents Mother
My daughter Riley was introduced to Industry Aerial Arts (IAA), 5 years ago at an open day event. One thing I like is Tammy’s commitment to safety, the quality of her equipment and rigging is paramount. I would recommend IAA if you are looking for experienced coaches to teach you correct techniques and who encourage creativity.
