Here’s a great New Years Resolution idea for you: learn to fly. Not as in piloting a plane, you dummy, but with your own body aided by aerial silks and the guidance of local instructor and performer, Kat Boston of Come Fly with B and Rebel Aerial. Ever since Submerge caught Boston and her partner in crime Monica Padilla (who is also an instructor) performing at a recent ArtMix event at Crocker Art Museum, we’ve been infatuated with the art of aerial silks, and it turns out, anyone can sign up for beginner classes with these multidisciplinary artists and teachers through Comeflywithbaerial.com. The lessons take place at SET Gymnastics (3997 N. Freeway Blvd., Sacramento) and start at just $20 for a single class, or get a five-class pass for $90. You can even book a one-on-one lesson, or get a group of your own together and book a private group lesson. Their entry level beginner classes are on Mondays at 7:30 p.m. You must sign up two hours in advance online. So if you’re looking to learn a new challenging and rewarding skill, aerial silks might just be for you. Fly on, friends!
