At Escape Aerial Arts, students learn how to combine the grace of dance and gymnastics while defying gravity. The studio's five poles and suspended aerial silks provide an alternative to typical conditioning and strength-training workouts. As students spin, climb, and dangle inches or feet above the ground, they are using their muscles without putting undue strain on their joints. Instructors lead a variety of classes ranging from beginners' sessions that introduce the fundamentals to more advanced sessions that emphasize the aspects of performing on the pole or aerial silks.
