Our aerial silks teacher Arjun wanted to host a silks workshop specifically for dancers, so that he can run classes which assume you have a movement background, and are trained in quick instruction and application, while exercising control over what your body can and cannot do!
DATE: Wednesday, September 18th
TIME: 12.00 – 1.30 PM
FEE: Rs 400
So do please come for this if you think you have the physical training to handle a class which will move rapidly through aerial silks technique and conditioning, a sort of silks bootcamp! If you’re unsure whether or not you’re suited for this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Arjun Sharma started dance in 2010, and graduated in Mayurbhanj Chaau, and started performing in Jhumroo, a Bollywood musical at Kingdom of Dreams. He was introduced to aerial performing arts there, and his first teacher was David Greeves, who is an internationally renowned aerial arts choreographer and teacher. After David Greeves, Arjun learned from Ana Cerrato, also a well-known international teacher and performer based out of the United Kingdom.
Arjun then worked as a professional aerialist with the Natya Nectar dance company, a leading Indian circus arts company. Arjun performed for organisations like Star TV, Reebok, Karsh Kale, Hero and many others. In 2015, Arjun participated in India’s Got Talent as a solo aerial artist and reached the semi finals.
Arjun has been teaching aerial silks for three years. This includes a three month stint in Macao choreographing an aerial piece with performers for theatre, and then in Dubai (2016-2018) for two years as a showrunner in aerial choreography. Arjun recently choreographed for the renowned Bollywood musical Devdas, and for Khelo India Youth Games 2018-2019.
Arjun’s 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.
