Learn to wrap, spin and pose in the air with our Babydoll Sling course! Aerial Slings are a long piece of stretchy fabric, with the ends looped together and rigged to the ceiling like a hammock. Our Babydoll Sling course will allow you to develop the foundations of the apparatus, combining elements of various aerial disciplines as well as learning how to use the sling as an artistic dance form. As part of the class, you will be learning a routine to showcase some of the skills you have acquired!
Our Beginners and other levelled Sling classes embrace a sensual style, and our focus is on teaching fluidity and beauty in movement rather than simply teaching tricks alone.
Technique required to enrol into this class:
Absolute beginners! We assume you have no prior dance or fitness experience, and classes progressively build up strength, flexibility and fitness.
Please bring the following items to class:
- Yoga mat
- Small towel
- Water bottle
- Wear something that makes you feel comfortable and/or sexy. Often babes wear active-wear (like leggings and a top), and others prefer lingerie (like a cute bodysuit or two-piece set). Make sure the back of your knees and mid-section are covered, as the fabric can feel quite tight on the skin. It is very important to wear an outfit that has no buckles, buttons, zippers, rhinestones, clasps or anything that can potentially snag the fabric of the sling. All Jewellery, watches and sharp pointed nails and body piercings are also not permitted (you can cover nails and piercings with thick strapping tape - Bandaids don’t hold for the whole lesson).
- Wear socks or stockings on your feet (no shoes - our photos are heavily styled) and no bare feet.
- We wash our slings regularly, however we kindly ask students to try their best to adhere to adequate hygiene practice, as fabric holds odour more than our other apparatus.
Please be mindful that if you come to class with any item that can snag the fabric of the sling, you will not be permitted to participate in the lesson. If the fabric snags while you are on it, it can be very dangerous for you - or for the next person that uses the apparatus.
