Looking for some guidance to buy a gift for the aerialist in your life?
Aerial silk necessities will run a dancer $200-$250, so it's not a small investment. Any little bit helps! Often you can find gift certificates to use towards the purchase. low-stretch fabrics are choice for beginners, but medium-stretch is ideal for more advanced performers. Bear in mind that some silks can come in hammocks, but a full length silk can be converted into a hammock.

They're gonna' need it!
There's a reason we often see aerialists in full length body suits. You want fabric that covers the back of your knees and probably a shirt that covers your midriff, or expect it to ride up. Don't even think about shoes, because they come off before anyone gets off the ground. If your dancer is into shoes, try pole dancing or hoop dancing!
Also, cute clothes like...
Rosin is great if you love a particularly sweater dancer. It creates an amazing flypaper effect on the fabric. Rosin is basically pine sap, so it's easy to understand how it might aid in grip.

You can learn anything on the internet these days, but consider the benefits of a trained professional; they will ensure that you stretch properly, teach to each individual, and follow important safety protocols. Never underestimate how crucial a spotter can be. :) At least, that's how we do things at Miss Fit Academy. We would love to see you, if you live in the Nashville area. If not, then a quick google search will point you in the direction of your local circus school. The internet isn't useless, after all. :)
