Aerial Hammock Dancing is also known as an Aerial Sling or an Aerial Loop. Artists can perform aerial feats in the air while displaying a wide variety of acrobatic shapes and dance moves. This is done on a long piece of fabric hanging from the ceiling in the form of a swing or loop, technically classified as Hammock Silks. It is also in the same family of Circus Arts and Aerial Acrobatics as the other modalities listed below.
Lyra is also known as the Aerial Hoop. It is an aerial ring, a circular steel or aluminum apparatus that resembles a hula hoop that is suspended in the air from the ceiling.
