Lyra is an aerial addiction like no other. This genre of aerial dance brings fitness and flight together into one stunning art form that will leave you refusing to dance with your feet only on the floor ever again. The aerial hoop, also called a lyra, is suspended from the ceiling and allows you to make mesmerizing shapes throughout it’s layers, while the hoop frames your every pose beautifully. Lyra students start with the fundamentals of posing, spinning, and transitioning through the layers of the hoop. A relationship with the hoop over time will lead to more advanced tricks, increased stamina, and fluidity. Conquering new levels of aerial hoop skills will increase your physical and mental strength, and enhance your appreciation for what your body can do!
