Inspire Aerial Arts takes fitness to new heights

“One of my favorite things about aerial is that it allows you to express yourself creatively, but also gives you the added benefit of a great workout. If you’re like me and you get bored at the gym, you’ll love aerial because it’s like playing for adults.”

Inhale, exhale and flip upside down. At Virginia-Highland’s Inspire Aerial Arts, even newbies can fly off the ground as aerial artists within minutes.

Inspire offers group aerial classes, private lessons and private parties in various apparatuses such as aerial silks and aerial hoops. Owner Kimberly Snede, who has trained with countless professional aerialists and Cirque du Soleil artists from around the world, opened the high-ceiling studio space on Amsterdam Walk in 2015.

“One of my favorite things about aerial is that it allows you to express yourself creatively, but also gives you the added benefit of a great workout. If you’re like me and you get bored at the gym, you’ll love aerial because it’s like playing for adults,” Snede said.

Most start with the Intro to Aerial Dance class, which teaches beginners how to balance, transition in and out of poses and go upside in a 60 minute class. From there, aerial artists can progress to aerial fitness classes and flexibility series or drop in for open practice.
