Tip of the week
This aerial silk tip of the week comes from instructor Annie Dickson.
#1 For cosmetic and safety purposes, keep ankles in line with your body. Ankles should be straight and not sickled. This can cause unnecessary falls and it can make your moves look lazy.
#2 Attend open aerial whenever you get the chance. Just one hour of extra practice each week will allow you to progress much faster.
#3 Listen to your body! Don't do more than you are able. If your arms are too worn out, stop, climb down, and try it again in 10 minutes.
#4 When performing a routine, always use a crash mat! Even professional dancers miss steps and occaisionally have a big fall in front of a crowd. Safety should be number 1!
