Elite is now offering an Aerial Arts Program!
Aerial Silks is a beautiful, creative, and challenging art form made popular by Cirque Du Soleil. It builds unparalleled core and upper body strength, coordination, and confidence. Students learn to climb, wrap, twist, contort and drop in a variety of positions from suspended silks. Anyone with determination and a great work ethic can progress quickly.
