Essential Teacher Training Course

This course comprises a five-day overview to the art of teaching aerial skills: trapeze, hoop, silks and rope, with a focus on correct body alignment and movement, injury prevention, spotting techniques, class creation and management, basic rigging concepts and business discussion.


Body alignment and injury prevention – correct shoulder position and technique. Getting the body to develop the correct musculature to prevent injury and maximise performance.

  • Class structure and creation- how to create an interesting and achievable class.

  • Class management – how to work with different levels and ages that may have to work together.

  • Aerial vocabulary and skills building – how to describe and explain aerial movement effectively for different learning skills.

  • Ways of learning and communicating – with different types of people.

  • Building good practice – in your school, studio and for participants’ personal practice.

  • Your studio and your clients – who you are and what you do.

  • Being creative – how to keep the interest going.

  • Being practical – support for you and your studio.

  • Working with children and students with special needs

This in-depth and holistic approach to teaching is appropriate for new teachers as well as those with teaching experience, and for those who work with children, young people or adults in a variety of educational environments including circus schools, gymnastic programmes, summer camps, fitness studios and more.


There will be a sample teaching session, providing an opportunity for the teacher trainees to create a sample curriculum and to work with “real” students.
