We know that your children need a quality physical education outlet that is fun, challenging and rewarding. Thats why Jennifer Dovidio, co-owner of Aerial Arts of Rochester developed a program called Aerial Arts Athletics. This program focuses on skills that children will carry with them into adulthood. They will learn about the human body and how relates to movement in addition to building progressive movements with the use of circus and aerial acrobatic skills. Students will work on both metal and fabric apparatuses. Other activities may include, spinning plates, juggling, hula hoop and more!
Children will expand and build on their aerial skills in this course adding aerial silk fabrics and aerial hoop, also called lyra. This course requires instructor permission for enrollment, students will need adequate experience on the apparatuses.
