12 Aerial Silks Double Footlock Moves

12 Aerial Silks Double Footlock Moves

I’m in love with double footlock moves on the aerial silks! Once you have the knack of footlocking your second foot level with your first (some days this is definitely harder than others!), you can get some really nice moves. When I first started silks I found it so unnerving having both feet tied. Now I’ve been doing it a few years, these are some of my most used moves. All of the double footlock moves are pretty enough for a decent Instagram shot and flow well for combinations. There are so many options on ways to put them together!

How to Stand Out at a Pole Competition – From a Judge!

How to Stand Out at a Pole Competition – From a Judge!

I recently had the pleasure of judging the University of East Anglia vs University of Essex pole competition. All the competitors did amazingly well! It takes so much guts to get up on stage and show the world a routine that you’ve been working on for months. I admire anyone that takes part in competitions (I’ve done it before, never again!).

Whilst judging I noticed that the competitors that placed and stood out to us all did the same things. So I thought I’d write a little blog post about how you can stand out if you’re competing soon!

Aerial Silks Conditioning Exercises

Aerial silks is hard, fact. It’s also fun, addictive and beautiful! It’s so easy to get caught up in learning new moves and trying to perfect old ones that we can forget that strength training is just as important.  If we are stronger it makes everything so much easier!

Group vs Private Lessons

Group vs Private Lessons

Some aerial and pole studios offer group lessons, some offer private lessons and some offer both. There are so many benefits that can be gained from attending different studios and different types of classes. It all depends on what you enjoy and what you want to get out of your lessons. I’m going to run through some of the pros and cons of group vs private lessons.
