Revolving Door is an aerial silks dive that’s simple to set up and it can be done over and over. It is sometimes also called Infinity Dive since it can be repeated infinitely. It revolves around a thigh support that is important to master and understand, and our tutorial video covers two different entrances into the dive, different ways to walk it through and add additional support when learning, and understanding the wraps and supports from the ground as well as in the air.

As with any momentum move on silks, it’s important to understand how and why the wrap works and ensure that you have enough height and body awareness to execute the move safely. We recommend that aerialists always train drops in the presence of a more experienced aerialist, and use videos to supplement the knowledge that you have. Our common mistakes cover mistakes that make it difficult to complete the rotation, as well as mistakes that can cause an aerialist to slide and lose height during the set up.

We teach this dive to our intermediate level students and we dive deep into the fabric theory that makes it work so that they understand how to sequence this skill into their own aerial routines.
