HOOP

The aerial hoop is classically known as the ‘Lyra, which means "of the iyre or song", a name apt for its birth as a “lyric hoop" act first presented in 1893. It can be performed static, spinning or swinging, and artists are able to experiment with numerous poses and transitions using the entire solid frame. Although there are more variations to the shape these days, the traditional circular steel hoop is still the most universal of the lot.

 

Aerial classes for Hoop are available in two separate formats: Shapes & Transitions and Flow.

 

The aerial hammock is derived from aerial silks, with the fabric forming a sling instead of two separate silk poles. While aerial yoga is a growing fitness trend these days, at Aerial and Floor, we specialise in teaching acrobatic and dance movements using this versatile apparatus.

 

Aerial classes for Hammocks are available in two separate formats: Shapes & Transitions and Flow.
