Angel drop on the silks is one of the first beginner drops you will learn. In order to be able to do an angel drop, you will need to be able to invert in the air and perform a competent crochet. It doesn’t need to be perfect. The more you practice in air inverts the smoother the transition will come.
Remember that you should always perform new moves with an instructor and a mat. This guide is for revision purposes only.
