About this class

This introduction to soft apparatus class will explore basic aerial awareness on the Tissu (Silks) and Sling (Aerial Hammock - a 15ft silk sling hung just below chin height). On the Tissu students will learn climbs, inversions, tying a footlock on the ground and in the air, as well as introducing basic tricks. On the Sling students will explore finding balance in front supports, and back supports. Various poses will be taught with the sling open and closed, as well as basic drops. No previous experience necessary, but Aerial Conditioning and Stretching/Flexibility classes are highly recommended. Attire: Students must wear tight fitted clothing that covers their legs and torso (no bare midriff). Suggestions are: leggings, tights, tank top, tight fitted t-shirt. No zippers, buttons, sequins, or anything that will catch and rip fabric or the tape on aerial apparatus. If training Trapeze or Lyra (Hoop) socks or leg warmers are suggested for ankle protection. If training Tissu or Sling bare feet are suggested.

Ashe is encouraging and attentive
Tissu/Sling - Beginning with Ashe
The personal instructor was really friendly and attentive. I learned a lot in this class. The main reason why it's one star less is because the receptionist/front desk lady of Acrosports is very rude so I felt unwelcome and uncomfortable in the beginning.
Tissu/Sling - Beginning with Ashe
Small class. Strenuous. If you are not that fit or flexible, might have a hard time. Teachers were nice.
Tissu/Sling - Beginning with Ashe
It was my first time and Ashe did an incredible job teaching me the basics!
Tissu/Sling - Beginning with Alexa
Super fun! The coach made it easy to understand by explaining the moves step by step and gradually increasing difficulty as we learned new skills.
Tissu/Sling - Beginning with Ashe
Great foundational basics class with careful attention to nomenclature, transitions and poses
