DRESSED FOR SILK-CESS!
Aerial silks and hammocks involve performing acrobatic maneuvers while suspended from a fabric apparatus. They require strength, flexibility, and a willingness to try new things. If you’re stepping into your first class, here’s what you should wear and bring:
- Form-fitting clothing: Aerial silks and hammocks require a lot of movement, so it’s important to wear clothing that won’t get in your way. Choose form-fitting clothes fitted tank tops, or sports bras. Avoid baggy clothes, as they can get caught in the fabric and restrict your movement.
- Leggings: When you’re wrapping the fabric around your legs, it’s important to have your skin covered to prevent burns and bruises. Leggings are a great choice.
- Socks or foot wraps (optional): Some people prefer to wear socks or foot wraps to protect their feet from the fabric. If you’re worried about slipping, you can try wearing grip socks.
- No jewelry or zippers: Jewelry or zippers can get caught on the fabric, which is not only dangerous but can also damage the fabric. It’s best to leave them at home.
- Water bottle: Aerial arts can be intense and you’ll need to stay hydrated. Bring a water bottle to class and drink plenty of water before, during, and after class.
- Towel: Aerial silks and hammocks can be challenging, and you may find yourself sweating. Bringing a towel can help you stay dry and comfortable.
