From a performance in Chapel Hill, NC

This is a “glossary” of aerial silks moves that I have put together based on videos in the public domain on YouTube.  While specific names of moves and sequences vary from studio to studio, I have tried to tag clips for easy searching.

In addition, I have modified the video URLs with time stamps when appropriate so that the video will only play the exact move that is mentioned.

See the categories across the top of this page to access the catalog of video clips.

Special thanks to Triangle Yoga in Chapel Hill, NC for offering wonderful aerial dance classes and workshops that have inspired me to keep learning more about this apparatus!  Happy flying!

*Disclaimer, I have not personally tested all the moves that are included in this site. Please use caution when attempting any aerial dance move.  You should always practice with mats and supervision while you are learning new elements.
