The Beginner's Guide to Aerial Silk by Jill Franklin is a great value, concise book that contains tutorials on basic aerial fabric moves and techniques. Any instructional aerial media, like this book, should be used as a reference guide and tool to aid training with an experienced and qualified instructor. Don't train alone or try new moves without an instructor.
This lively book takes you through aerial silk fundamentals including how to climb, wrap, invert and spiral your body into and out of an array of positions. All the tricks taught in this book are accompanied by full colour photos to help illustrate the techniques.
It also contains a guide to body strengthening exercises that you can do at home. These exercises will help you make progress with your silks tricks by continuing to strengthen and condition your body when not on the silk.
In the words of Jill herself: "This guide will help you gain the strength of a cirque performer, the lovely lines of a ballet dancer and the ease of movement like a Pilates pro."
