Aerial silks 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.
Please join us for an introductory workshop to experience this unique and challenging art! Arjun is an excellent teacher and we’re keen to introduce silks to more people to build an aerial arts community here at Delhi Rock, so do please join us for this!

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 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.
