We at Aerial Silk Vienna have made it our mission to teach aerial sports in a safe and effective way. In order to provide high-quality instruction, all of our instructors are keen aerialists who completed the Level 1 Silks Teacher Training by Paper Doll Militia (providers of the Born to Fly Certification program). All members of our team have different professional backgrounds but share a passion for aerial arts. We designed our classes based on that multi-professional knowledge. We follow a structured approach and focus on breaking down new skills into progressions. Our goal is to support and encourage each and every student in order for them to reach their full potential.
The instructors at Aerial Silk Vienna turned their hobby into their profession, which they’ll always be passionate about. They are eager to share their enthusiasm and their knowledge with others. Meet our team!
Cooperation instead of competition
Aerial arts have brought so much joy into our lives that we wanted to spread it! We created a positive environment where mutual support and personal growth go hand in hand. That’s why we love to cooperate with other circus or dance schools. We’ve found these partnerships to be highly rewarding.
If you’re visiting from abroad and looking for an opportunity to train, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Practice makes perfect
We want to help our students reach their aerial goals. We encourage them to explore and expand their abilities while not pushing past their limits.
Your safety is important to us. Aerial sports do involve a certain risk of injury. In order to ensure safe practice, we focus on healthy technique and respect our limits. No good comes of forcing your body to do things it’s not ready for.
We strive at making our studio a place where everyone feels comfortable, regardless of their athletic background. We don’t think that aerial arts should be exclusive to circus performers or elite gymnasts. Our classes are designed for all body types and abilities, you can learn at your own pace and advance to a higher level once you feel confident enough. There’s no pressure. Aerial sports require a very specific type of strength that you’ll gradually develop. Conditioning, proper technique and helpful progressions (identifying sub-goals) allow you to effectively reach your goals.
We always want our students to remember that the journey itself is the reward. So enjoy the ride! By doing what we love, we get better at it.
Guests who have shaped us
This studio is located in the heart of Vienna, right behind the famous Saint Stephen’s Cathedral at Domgasse 8. You can get there easily by subway (lines U1 or U3).
You’ll find us in the lower basement (you’d never guess how deep the building goes underground…).
We have four rigging points (for groups of a maximum of eight students) at a height of approximately five meters. They have been stress-tested by a structural engineer. There’s a changing room and two showers.
