featuring original sequences designed and instructed by Sara Kaiser and Anna Cicone
Looking for a particular sequence tutorial? Check out our a la carte options! All of these are INCLUDED in the Aerial Silks Online membership.
This sequence will guide you through a variety of beautiful shapes, all born from a simple eggbeater wrap. It is meant for the Beginner/Intermediate level aerialist who is comfortable being in the air for 2 minutes, and who has a comfortable execution of eggbeater wraps and grip endurance. Requires 10′ of height.
This intermediate+ sequence involves some fun tension work and several moments to linger in beautiful shapes. It also includes a dynamic option to the pony setup. I offer a less back-bendy modification that also looks lovely. This sequence holds great potential for further sequencing and alternate routes. Had plenty of room to spare with 14′ of height.
Antelope split is another original sequence made for the intermediate aerialist. Before trying, the aerialist should have a comfortable Seattle Climb (the climb that begins as a Russian Climb but goes all the way to the hip, shown in the tutorial), as well as comfort with knee grip. The placement of the tail on the leg during the split pose emphasizes “almost” splits, even splits, and over splits!
This beginner/intermediate sequence is a perfect one for all of the split enthusiasts out there. This demo will take you from an egg beater into a combination of beautiful shapes, all which lead to an epic split. Please make sure you have an understanding of the muscle engagement required for splits before attempting.
This sequence lives up to its name by lacing you through a complex wrap that leads up to a beautiful pose perfect for a photoshoot. Anna has provided an intermediate and advanced option to the final pose. Before attempting the advanced version, make sure you first try it low to get a feeling for the difficulty of the grip. 15′ height recommended but you can work it out with less.
This sequence will guide you from a modified Footlock wrap into a cool “zig zag” shape followed by a split. It is meant for the Beginner/Intermediate level aerialist who is comfortable with being in the air for 2 minutes, and who has a familiarity with basic footlocks and the mechanics of how they wrap. You will need a minimum of 12 feet of height to complete the sequence in full. This sequence would be especially great for a photoshoot!
“Broken Egg” is for the intermediate aerialist interested in learning a sequence that will take them through a beautiful, elongated stag into a single ankle hang. The fluid transitions allow for some fun shape play and versatile legs. Make sure you have familiarity with both regular and reverse egg beaters, as well as ankle hangs, before attempting. 12+ feet of height required.
A beginner/intermediate sequence that leads you to the ultimate photoshoot position! Once you’re there it’s easy to hand out and play with your wrap design.
10′ of height needed but you could make it work with less. Prerequisites include any climb, comfort working on a single footlock, and basic understanding of fabric theory.
