What qualifications do the teachers have? OR What about safety?
All of our teachers / instructors have taken aerial teacher training courses and have practical experience teaching. Our assistant teachers are under the supervision of lead teachers, who have taken multiple teacher training courses. During the Covid closures in the summer of 2020, all of our instructors participated in weekly training sessions to meet the unique needs of instructing and spotting a physical activity with the added necessity of social distancing and masking. We met with physical therapists and attended national workshops on training safely and mask usage during this time.
Our curriculum is developed to move students from less advanced skills to more advanced skills, gaining body awareness and strength. The emphasis on skills progression prioritizes student safety and health.
All students work with a mat under them.
What if I am not strong enough / don’t have aerial experience / have two left feet / etc.?
We believe everyone can experience the benefits and joys of aerials and circus arts. Our studio commits to making circus arts accessible to everyone. We will work with you at your current level of fitness and help you safely build skills and strength. We also have experience adapting circus and aerials to people with non-typical intellectual and physical abilities, and we welcome the opportunity to adapt circus skills to your needs.
