Like dancers in the sky, aerial silks athletes hang from long strips of fabric and perform acrobatics suspended from them with beauty, grace, and sheer physical skill. This captivating book encourages readers who may not have access to other sports to be physically and acrobatically active. It profiles the leading silks performers, circus arts organizations that teach courses, and places where one can see the acts in person. Readers learn how aerial silks compares with dance, trapeze, and yoga, how to spot quality instructors and studios, and the necessary practices to keep athletes safe while having the maximum amount of fun.
