This intensive short course runs from 18-22nd September and consists of five days of aerial tuition, mixed with a healthy balance of complementary classes to supplement your training. Add to that some industry experts in Injury Prevention and others in Act Creation, and we’ve got ourselves one helluva week.
There will be a range of aerial classes throughout the week. With the timetable carefully balanced to ensure no aerial fatigue. After initial sessions in Silks, Hoop, Rope and Trapeze, you will be given the opportunity to specialise in one of the four disciplines. Also, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at other disciplines such as Spanish Web, Harness, Acrobalance and Handstands.
Through a programme of conditioning and flexibility sessions we will also create a bespoke training programme for every participant to ensure that you can continue working towards your goals after the week is over. Over the course of the week we will work towards creating an act - in time for a performance to friends and family on the last evening.
Every participant will receive training sheets and notes from the week, a personalised training programme, including a certificate of course completion – as well as a guaranteed surge of endorphines from the end of course show! There are breaks in both morning and afternoon sessions, as well as a lunch break (times and duration vary from day to day). All participants will enjoy discounts at the Union Theatre Café throughout the week.
The course is open to anyone with a good basic understanding of Aerial. The ability to invert in mid-air is a pre-requisite. If you’re not sure - drop us a line and we’ll do what we can to help guide you as best as we can.
