Aerial Fabric

Strength and flexibility. All classes start with strength conditioning and awareness of the muscles used for fabric skills.

Wraps and poses. Basic wraps and poses are taught then combined with dance moves from the floor to the fabric and back. Choreography is developed in collaboration with the students.

Practice. Combinations of poses and basic routine are learned and perfected.

Advanced. More complex wraps and drops are learned and mastered. Each student is coached to develop their own choreography.

Performance. We coach performance skills and preparation for audiences of thousands.

Hoop

Moves and poses. Basic moves and poses are taught then combined with dance moves from the floor to the hoop and back. Choreography is developed in collaboration with the students.

Bungee Trapeze

Equipment. The bungee harness and bungees are tuned to the individual performer depending on their weight and size. Straps are fixed webbing loops suspended from the ceiling.

Height. Bungee can be used low to the ground as an adagio element with training in flipping and awareness of the body in the air.

Trapeze bar. Bungee trapeze can use a trapeze bar which requires training in spinning moves and bouncing.

Choreography. Basic moves, flips, drops, and poses are taught and then combined with dance moves from the floor to the bungee and back. Choreography is developed in collaboration with the students.

Class life at Dardanos

Dardano's School of Gymnastics. We have trained with and learned from contortionists, burlesque dancers, belly dancers, fire spinners, hand balancing duos, and jugglers. We are always surprised at who will join us! We share our knowledge of the aerial skills so it makes for fun evenings on Sunday and Wednesday nights.
