Dynamic silks with Hanne Coeckelberghs
We are extremely happy to announce that on September 12 and 13 we will be hosting a full weekend masterclass with Hanne Coeckelberghs.
We recommend this lesson for all people with no previous experience doing aerial silks or other similar disciplines.
During the session the teacher will work in bringing body awareness for the practice of aerial disciplines together with going through the basics such as climbing, straddling and working on the much needed strength to get flying.
Being on the air requires strength and flexibility, but also safety principles that we will embed from the very first practice. Therefore for this lesson you can expect a well balanced mix that will lift you high in energy and get you started with this beautiful discipline.
This lesson will prepare and energize your body for the practice of aerial acrobatics.
- General warm-up to prepare the muscles and joints
- Intensive full body workout optimized for aerial acrobatics: core | arms | legs
- Full body stretching to correct posture, align muscles and improve body feeling
- Conditioning in trapeze and silks
- Learning and practice of different moves, positions and drops in silks
- Final stretch and cool down
During this lesson we are going to combine fantastic moves into a beautiful choreography.
Each month will be dedicated to learning a sequence set on music that at the end of the cycle will be assembled into a full aerial choreography.
In order to join we require students to have a good understanding of possibilities in the silks and be able to perform the following exercises:
Iron-T (aka Christ)

Have you been dreaming about learning silks for a while? Then this is the perfect lesson to start with!
During one hour and a half we will be focusing on introduction to the practice of aerial silks by working on your strength, flexibility and providing you with elements to start flying with us. Being on the air requires strength and flexibility, but also safety principles that we will embed from the very first practice. Therefore for this lesson you can expect a well balanced mix that will lift you high in energy and get you started with this beautiful discipline.
Imagine holding yourself 5 meters in the air while preparing for a silk combo or a drop (how cool is that!
With this lesson we finally bring the beautiful geometry and dynamic possibilities of aerial hoop (Lyra) into the Aerials Amsterdam studio.
During 1.5 hours our experienced teacher will guide you to get familiar and eventually master this technique.
The lesson starts with a group warm-up, followed by stretching and core exercises. Afterwards there will be technique exercises and creative sequences on the air adjusted for the level of the students.
This lesson is designed to gain more flexibility in all major joint and muscle groups which is very important for both athletic performance and the ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
If you are doing Aerial Silks, Hoop, Pole dance, handstands, dance, martial arts or other disciplines this is a perfect class to complement your training and enhance your performance.
Performing different stretch techniques will not only improve your front and box splits, chest openers and back bends, leg holds and balances but will also decrease the risk of injury, enhance your posture and reduce muscle tension and joint stress.
Each person is taught to stretch in a way that suits his or her needs and lifestyle.
During this lesson the teacher will continue to work on strength and flexibility while developing intermediate combos and transitions in the air.
This lesson is for students that already have gone through the beginners A and B or practiced aerial silks for a longer period of time.
In order to join we ask that you are familiar with different ways of climbing on the silks, footlock, back-cross, crab-lock, hip-lock, straddle and different drops.
During one hour and a half we will be focusing on styling elements for the practice of aerial acrobatics.
Being on the air requires strength but also grace, and this class will give you the tools and practice to have a nice stretch & flow in the floor as well as in the air.
Imagine lifting your legs with grace into the air and accomplishing the splits while suspended above the ground (how cool is that!)
