About Aerial Kids

Pole fitness originates from pole dance, but in pole fitness, also called sports poledance the focus is on activating the body, strengthening the balance and motor skills, and play around with the creativity. Aerial Silk and Aerial Hoop is often known from circus, where acrobats are moving in the air from long tissues and big hoop rings.

For the Aerial Kids classes we have a big, light playroom with 12 poles, 6 aerial hoops and 6 aerial silks. We switch between training with the pole, hoop or silk. We always make sure to warm up properly before training and cool down after training. So, if you got yourself a little circus princess or circus artist jumping around at home, make sure you are signing him or her up for the Aerial KIDS class.

Our teachers are Maibrit and Othilie. Maibrit has a background in gymnastics and dance, and has for several years taught children both jumping and rhythmic gymnastics before she started training pole fitness and aerial. She teaches in both Copenhagen and Odense. Othilie has a long background in aerial and has taught children circus acrobatics for several years. Othilie teaches aerial in Odense.

Condition & Strength

Dance and movement, combined with controlled exercises, where the kids learn to use both arm and legs to lift their bodyweight are enhancing their conditioning and strength.

Motor skills

Pole, Hoop and Silk are enhancing the motor skills, due to the fact that the kids do exercise while they are upside down and spinning around. This is good for the balance and motor skills.

Creative development

While using the body in various ways, by combining different exercises and tricks as well as dance and listen to the music, we develop and enhance the creativity of the kids.

Training for kids

On the Aerial KIDS class we don’t just train – we have fun, laugh, dance, jump, spin, go upside down and make training a fun play. We don’t only train on one apparatus, but use both Aerial Silk, Pole Fitness and Aerial Hoop to have a fun workout. We are using the apparatus for acrobatic exercises to strengthen the motor skills, the balance, the body control and the creativity. We are focusing on being creative by using our body in ways we are not use to and create small combinations that fits our level and bodies capabilities. We learn cool acrobatic moves to show off in the school yard.

What does the media say?


If pole dancing is to be a permanent part of the world of sports, talent must be developed.

If pole dancing is to be a fixed part of the world of sport, talent must be developed. Therefore, the children must join. And there's nothing wrong with that.
