Beginner Aerial Hoop/LYRA
With Matthew Harrison

Created with Sketch.

Aerial hoop (Also known as Lyra, or Circeaux) is a suspended steel ring, much like a hula hoop in which an acrobat performs stunning displays of strength, skill and grace while on stage. It's origins have evolved from tradition swinging trapeze and gymnastics.

This class is beginner friendly, and will help students develop core, upper body strength and flexibility needed to build smooth transitions between basic aerial skills and manoeuvres.
