Staying Safe

"It was amazing to have the opportunity to have a go, I can’t believe what I did. I was so nervous but you created a friendly environment which felt safe. I never imagined I would have gone upside down."

Michelle, Student
Our priority is ensuring our students feel comfortable and safe. We support students through each and every move, ensuring they feel confident when attempting something new. There is always a crash mat under our silks, and we work carefully and attentively at the level of our students’ ability.  

Keeping our bodies fit and well is very important at Cirque de Silk. At the beginning and end of every class, we carry out an intense warm-up and cool-down to minimise the risk of injury. Our instructors always check for existing injuries, and provide appropriate exercises for each individual. 

We check our equipment on a six-weekly basis to coincide with our courses. This involves a thorough examination of our aerial silks, rigging equipment, and the aerial rig itself.  

Our instructors have first aid training, are fully insured, and DBS certified.

Our portable aerial rig is engineer-certified. Documentation available upon request.
