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.
It is most common to see Circus Artists performing aerial acrobatics in a static, spinning or swinging manner.
Aerial Silks is an Aerial Art Form in which one or more artists perform a sequence of aerial acrobatic moves while suspended in the air on fabrics. The fabric is hung as two pieces and is the only form of support. It is also known as Aerial Fabric, Aerial Tissue or Aerial Ribbon.
