In addition to our gymnastic classes, Sokol Greater Cleveland offers other great opportunities in areas of both athletics and Czech culture.

Aerial Silks

Like gymnastics, aerial silks builds strength, flexibility, and coordination. Aerial silks is an athletic art form most often associated with Cirque du Soleil. It involves paired lengths of fabric hung from above that are climbed, wrapped around the body, and/or tied to create dramatic drops, poses and movement above the ground.

Classes are Wednesdays 8:30-10 PM and Sundays 7-8:30 PM. Sign up for classes on the registration portal here. All participants must be registered through the signup portal! Purchase single classes for $20 ($15 for members) or 5-class cards for $80 ($60 w/ membership).
