Hey Central Florida! Want to try something new like Silks and Lyra?


Silks with BenjiAerial Tissu (Silks) is the art of suspended dance. "Tissu" means "fabric" in French, and is a fitting description for this cirque-inspired dance form because the performers dance on long fabric silks. The performer uses the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral their body into and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying.


Lyra and Acro with Adam and Benji at Dance Centers of Orlando

The Aerial Hoop (also known as the lyra, aerial ring or cerceau) is a circular steel apparatus (resembling a hula hoop) suspended from the ceiling, on which an artist performs aerial acrobatics. It can be used static, spinning, or swinging. Routines are an exciting display of athleticism, coordination and flexibility.
