UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

 Oct 12-13: Intermediate Level Aerial Fabric Teacher Training Part 1 ($450USD)

Hosted by Paradisaea Aerial Dance

Learn how to safely spot drops and teach complex sequences using elements of Fabric Theory with a curriculum created by Nimble Arts™. We’ll also spend time on creative choreography to help keep you and your students inspired while moving at a pace that allows their bodies to develop to the level of physicality necessary for safe fabric training.

PREREQUISITE: Foundation Level Aerial Fabric workshop.

Be comfortable executing, without prompting and on both sides, without extensive review, a broad range of intermediate level skills and some advanced skills including opposite side dive (aka flippy/diaper/salto), double star drop (aka ramon), unlocked 360, cross back straddle (including choreographic variations such as Georgia twist), double crochet/double crucifix drops such as tic tock, front balance knee drop, and basic locked “sit” drops such as figure 8 series and hip key roll around. If you are unable to match these trick names to your names or if you are unsure if you are at the necessary skill level please contact Elsie at traptwins@gmail.com. Exceptions to this skill level requirement can be made for teachers with physical limitations that do not hinder their ability to be competent teachers AND spotters at the Foundation level. (For example: someone in a foot cast with previous experience who can still spot and execute some skills, or someone with a shoulder injury who academically knows the skills required and are comfortable spotting.)

If you are not sure if you are at the necessary skill level or have any other questions, please contact Elsie at nimblearts@gmail.com for more information.
