Aerial Silks

Ever since Martha Graham I feel like dance really has been changing and growing. Ballet is a long practiced form of dance with strict and ridgid rules. As beautiful of art it is, it is intresting to see other forms such as hip hop or lyrical able to change and move more freely, creating its own culture.

That being said, I have just recently been getting into Aerial Silks ( also called aerial contortion, aerial ribbons, aerial silks, aerial tissues, fabric, ribbon, or tissu depending on the region) and aerial hoop (also known as the lyra, aerial ring or cerceau/cerceaux). I am unsure exactly if it is a sport or a type of dance and acro, but a baby in terms of dance, it is very fun to see it in action. I know that these forms arn’t exaclty “new,” but most of the creaters are still alive today, and it is still being devloped and making itself known which is different from the other types of dance like the ancient ballet.

It is fun to see preformances because though there are common moves, it is so young that new movs are being created, and you can even see that there are different ways to preform them. I wonder where these forms are taken in the furture.
