Aerial silks and pole dancing are two popular forms of performance art that have much in common. Both involve the use of fabric or metal poles to perform stunning acrobatic maneuvers. Moves such as climbs, wraps, drops, and poses are integral parts of both aerial silks and pole dance choreography. Both disciplines also require a great deal of upper body strength, core control and flexibility. In addition to their many physical similarities, aerial silks and pole dancing share an emphasis on self-expression; performers often develop unique routines based around personal style or mood. If you’re looking for a fun way to challenge yourself physically while expressing your creativity – whether individually or with others – then one (or both!) of these exhilarating dance forms may be right up your alley!
