Have Questions? See Below For a List of FAQ’S



Q) I am super excited about joining Silks Stars but I only have access to a mini rig (10 feet) right now. Will I still be able to do the monthly challenges and classes?

A) The short answer is; Yes! MOST of the combinations and exercises taught in Silks Stars will have modifications for lower rig points. There are a few specific drops that do require more height but you wont be penalized for making modifications (meaning you can still earn 5 stars, even with height restrictions).

Q) When I sign up for Silks Stars, will I have access to a lot of tutorials right away or will I have to wait?

A) When you register for Silks Stars you will have INSTANT access to over 25 foundational Aerial Silks tutorials that you can begin studying and working on right away as well as the current months Challenge Combination and corresponding class AND all of the past 41 months of Silks Stars content.

Q) Is it difficult to earn stars? I’m worried that my training videos wont be good enough and I wont earn stars or unlock any prizes!

A) Once you join Silks stars you will receive a PDF document that explains exactly what you need to do to earn each star. It’s not as difficult a you might think, in fact you will earn one star just by submitting your challenge video each month!

Q) I like the idea of earning stars for submitting my training videos but I’m not a competitive person. Can I still be a part of Silks Stars if I don’t upload my training videos and don’t receive stars?

A) Absolutely! The Star System is a motivational tool designed to help you work towards a goal (achieving stars and unlocking prizes) but you can still work on the combinations, post in the forum and participate in the monthly Q & A sessions without uploading your training videos. If and when you decide that you are ready to post your videos you can keep them private so no one else in the community can see your work.

Q) I am excited to join Silks Stars but I don’t have access to an aerial point right now, will I be able to join next month when my studio is open again?

A) Registration for Silks Stars is open for a limited time. This is to ensure we are able to provide the highest quality of customer service and continuing, personalized group coaching as students work on the same challenge combination together each month. Silks Stars will reopen again at a later date but the price may be increased and the content will likely be different at that time.

Q) What kind of prizes can I expect to ‘unlock’ when I earn stars?

A) Great question! We are super excited about the Silks Stars prizes you will be unlocking as you upload your challenge videos and receive stars for your efforts. Prizes primarily consist of video workshops such as bonus trick tutorials, performance workshops, pro-tips and aerial ‘hacks’ to help you become the best aerialist you can be as well as awesome Silks Stars swag!
