Sign up for aerial silks acrobats this Sunday, 10/28 from 1:15pm-2:15pm. It is a beginner course and requires no previous experience or specific skills. If you have no upper body strength and are deathly afraid of heights this is still the class for you – there are plenty of fun tricks you can learn without climbing high into the air.

You must sign up on Summit to attend the class, which will meet at the Ritt Kellogg Climbing Gym (in the basement of El Pomar). You should wear clothes you are able to move and stretch easily in! Leggings and a sleeved shirt (no tank tops) are best. You will also be barefoot.

If the class is full, please add yourself to the waitlist!
