Beginner and intermediate silks are often 25ft with little to no stretch in the fabric.  While professional stage shows can use silks of 40ft or longer with extreme stretch in the fabric. Students will learn, climbs, wraps, drops (advanced) as well as safety protocols. Expect a lot of climbing with this beautiful and popular apparatus.
