Aerials with Liesl Klaue
Liesl Klaue (@aerialaspiration) grew up fascinated by acrobatic and aerial arts and actually started as a trampolinist. Liesl became a committed aerialist in 2017, focusing on silks but dabbling in rope, straps, hoop, hammock, duo trapeze, hand balancing, and hand to hand. Since then, she has trained in several studios in BC, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and even London, England. She was certified by Aerial Physique in 2019 and has been coaching ever since. Currently, she is based in Kelowna, BC where she trains and coaches at Peak Aerial Fitness. Liesl is best known for her love for drops and insistence on proper technique.

5:00 pm to 7:00 pm: All Day Every Belay
There are a million ways to belay, but what do they all have in common? In this workshop, Liesl will break down the belay wrap to its simplest form to give students a solid understanding of how and why it works as well as common errors. She will then go through several entries to belay including waist and knee belays transitioning into wrist and ankle belays. Students will also learn some fun
shapes in belay followed by a variety of exits.
To get the most out of the class, it is required that students are able to invert in the air, crossback straddle, and climb at least 15 feet.
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm: The “Ultimate” Drop Silk Workshop
Come learn from @aerialaspiration the art of drop stacking. Liesl will be teaching a multiple part drop (dubbed, “the Ultimate”) that can be mixed and matched with various entrances and exits and even foundationally different starting wraps. Liesl will use manageable progressions and fabric theory to bring your aerial silks drops to new heights!
To get the most out of the class, it is required that students are able to invert in the air, crossback straddle, pull over, climb to the top of the silk (or climb twice in a row if it is a lower studio), and feel comfortable dropping from a height.
Cost: $60 per workshop, $55 each if you take both. GST needs to be added
