Aerial Fit Lab is the first and only studio on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to offer Pole and Aerial Classes!
Pole dance and fitness is a form or performing art, historically associated with strip clubs and night clubs, which combines dance and acrobatics centered on a vertical pole. This art form has recently gained popularity as a form of fitness and mainstream entertainment. Amateur and professional pole dancing competitions are held in many countries around the world. Pole dance requires significant strength, flexibility and endurance and involves athletic moves such as climbs, spins, and body inversions using the limbs to grip. Upper body and core strength are required to attain proficiency and rigorous training is necessary. Pole Dance is now regarded as a form of exercise which can be used as both an aerobic and anaerobic workout.
Aerial Silks also known as aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial silks, aerial tissues, fabric or tissu is a type of performance in which one or more artists perform aerial acrobatics while hanging from a fabric. Performers climb the suspended fabric without the use of safety lines, and rely only on their training and skill to ensure safety. They use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing and spiral their bodies into and out of various positions. Aerial silks may be used to fly through the air, striking poses and figures while flying.
Lyra also known as hoop, aerial ring is a circular steel apparatus (resembling a hula hoop) suspended from the ceiling or tripod, on which artists may perform aerial acrobatics. It may be used static, spinning, or swinging.
Chair Dance provides convenient and effective fitness routines done while comfortably seated. An alternative to high impact aerobics and gym workouts, Chair Dancing Fitness improves muscle tone, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.
Twerk is best way to fit, legit and official booty results! High impact cardio and glute workout that teaches glute muscle control, bounce and shake!
