This is a great starter book for aerial silks. Simple an concise instruction and clear visual back up. Once I got to know and understand the basic silks vocab' I easily picked up the moves and turned them into phyical knowlege.
I was so glad to open the book and see how much instruction was included! Amazing book for beginners. A must have for anyone who wants to learn on their own or advanced faster in their classes. I hope she makes an intermediate and advanced version as well.
I have been doing aerial fabric for only a few months, but I've looked for books about it for probably the past year. Everything I found (which wasn't much) was always either in french, lacking in description or had inadequate photo's. This book is AMAZING!!! Thank you for putting it together!!! It has wonderful step by step directions that are accompanied with beautiful instructional photos and if thats not enough she even included teacher and spotter side notes that give extra little tips and teach your spotter and you what to look for to prevent you from having injuries or strains. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to start aerial fabric. BEAUTIFULLY done! Oh and being able to download the book was so convenient cause I didn't want to wait to see it and I saved a few trees, what a great feature. REBEKAH PLEEEEEEASE MAKE AN ADVANCED AND OR INTERMEDIATE BOOK!!!!! THEY ARE NEEDED AND YOU DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB WITH THIS ONE. THANKS AGAIN!!!!
Wow, you've put together an awesome publication Rebekah! I'm so excited to get into it. This will be an invaluable reference. There are many tricks I've never seen - what a service to have documented it all! The photos are beautiful and I really like that you call out students and peers for innovating moves. The book is timeless yet also captures this time in the art.
