***Special Announcement!*** Aerial Silks Online is now featuring tutorials by Anna Cicone, AKA @00silkdrop. She is an AMAZING instructor. Enjoy!

I am so glad I subscribed to this!! I just watched the split roll to x back transition video. You're a genius! I have done those two back to back before and didn't know how to connect them. Your instructions are so easy to follow and you have great tips and coaching. I love that you show the move, then slow it down and explain the technique and steps. You are a great instructor!

“Geometry” by Anna Cicone – Beg/Int 

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.

Polygon Split by Anna Cicone – Int/Adv

Tip Toe Pony by Sara Kaiser – Int/Adv

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 by Anna Cicone – Int

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!

Captain Hook by Anna Cicone – Int/Adv

This tutorial is for the intermediate/advanced aerialist. It incorporates a diveroll-like drop which then turns into a beautiful split pose. Make sure you are comfortable with in-air straddles and grip endurance before attempting.

Broken Egg by Anna Cicone – Int

“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.
