Aerial Fitness

Aerial Fitness by Dancing in the Air®

olga-protrait-aerial-training-sydneyAll I have achieved is thanks to classic Eastern European techniques. And it has shaped so many top performers across so many artistic disciplines. 

Our aerial fitness, contortion, flexibility and hand balancing training is all based on these techniques that will help you to master the skills.

Our training happens in small classes of 2-6. You will get your own exercises that I develop for you to achieve your individual goals. Enjoy the fun, motivation and flexible schedules of a small group.

Get a taste of how our training really works. Just check out some of our videos on Facebook below!


Dancing in the Air offers several disciplines:

1. Contortion & Flexibility (Mobility)

Contortion & flexibility training aims to achieve the aesthetic lines, extension and shapes. These are highly desirable for aerial and acrobatic performance. We work to increase your flexibility / mobility and achieve your potential particularly in the areas of splits, shoulders and back.

Each person has their own strengths. We take this into account when designing your individual contortion program.

My classes are set up from beginners to professionals but also for those who require teacher training for their own schools.

2. Hand Balancing and Handstand

Upside down Russian hand balancing technique is advanced from handstands. What we do is teach alignment. This training enables you to feel your body so that you can balance in a variety of challenging positions.

It allows the ability to stand upside down for a long time and move the body through the equilibrium.

3. Aerial Fitness

This is the base where where we develop all strength and conditioning. In these sessions, we evaluate your movements patterns on the ground and in the air. Here you will learn static, dynamic and rotation movements in a graduated fashion.

You will build core stability and long lean muscle required for acrobatic and aerial work. We address many of the different components of fitness through body weight training. You are the machine. You work with your own body to develop the foundation for your performance or your personal fitness goals.

Times adjust depending on everyone’s availability. It is easy to work out a time that suits you. Our classes are often from 10am to midday on a Tuesday, Friday or Sunday.
