There is a wide variety of ways to get into a belay on the aerial silks, ranging from short and simple, to dynamic and complex. In this workshop, we will warm up with a simple entry into a belay, learn a few moves in a belay including wrist locks, and finish off with a dynamic drop that lands you into a belay!
