Aerial with Dasha

Aerial silks (also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial silk, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon, or tissu, depending on regional preference) is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a special fabric.

Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines, and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions.

Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying. Some performers use dried or spray rosin on their hands and feet to increase the friction and grip on the fabric. (Source: Wikipedia)

Please note that aerial silks is very different from aerial yoga. Silks is a performative and gymnastic form; for more, please see these videos on YouTube.

ABOUT DASHA

Dasha has 15 years of dancing experience and 5 years of aerial acrobatics. Dasha received her training from teachers from Russia and Australia and through various workshops. Her main aerial apparatuses are Aerial silks and Aerial rope.

Her classes include intense conditioning, stretching and learning tricks on the silks in gradual progressions tailored to the fitness level of every student. The main goal of the classes is to spread this beautiful circus art in a safe way and create a fun and intelligent fitness practice.

  8. The official age bracket is 15+ Asha, but since your daughter might have the right height and learning ability, we’re happy to allow her to do a drop-in. Dasha will then let you know if she’s suitable for the group or not.

    We need to add you to the waitlist, because class is currently full. If that’s OK with you, please reply here, or email us at team@delhirock.com and we’ll add you!

  11. Hey! How many classes does it take to familiarize with the skill? How much will I learn in 12 classes?

  12. Aerial silks are very hard, and it usually takes a couple of months of conditioning for students to manage to climb and have endurance for basic tricks. You should expect to commit at least 3-4 months to see noticeable improvements, of coming twice weekly.

  13. Hi!
    I will be visiting Delhi in the Aug’17 for 15-20 days approximately. However, the dates aren’t fixed yet. By when should I book my slot latest if I want a 12 days pass?

  14. Hi Garima,

    The class is full, but we can add you to the waitlist, and you can snag the slots which appear during your dates. Dasha will ask you to pay the dropin fee for these however, because we can’t guarantee you’ll have a slot for every class you want to attend. Do let us know if we can add you!
