Aerial Hoop

We’d recommend this or trapeze as a great starting point for building the core strength that aerial arts require. The lower bar of the hoop gives you a place to stop for a rest while you gear up for your next big move!

Some smaller children will find trapeze a little easier than hoop due to the size of the equipment.

“Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you aerial classes. And that’s basically the same thing”

Once you’ve mastered the basics, we’ll move onto building your strength so you can link sequences of moves together, and we can later move onto drops and different ways to hang out on your hoop… there’s always something new to try!

Just tell us what you want to achieve out of your sessions and we’ll help you work towards your goals safely.

Did you know…

… the origins of the aerial hoop (also known as lyra, aerial ring, or cerceau) are pretty vague. The earliest recorded lyra performance was for an advert that appeared in the New York Clipper in 1893. Since then, performers have been developing their uses of the equipment and there are now several variations on the act including “double point lyra” and “tippy lyra”.
