Aerial Hoop (also known as Lyra or Cerceau) combines dance, circus skills, choreography and fitness.

The aerial hoop is a large steel hoop, which is wrapped to create grip, suspended from the ceiling on which you can perform a range of moves, drops and poses.
It offers many ways to target all the major muscle groups.
In an Aerial Hoop class, students will build strength and flexibility with a range of strength building, conditioning, tricks and inverts.
