The Aerial for Dancers course is a one week introductory course to the wonderful world of aerial. It is designed for newcomers to aerial who are looking to take flight for the first time and take to the skies! The course consists of five days of aerial tuition and will teach the aerial fundamentals across a range of aerial disciplines - Aerial Silks, Hoop and Slings. The course culminates with a professional presentation, giving you a showreel to really elevate your career.
There will be a range of aerial classes throughout the week, with the timetable carefully balanced to minimise aerial fatigue. There is a varied timetable from day to day, consisting of classes in our core disciplines, as well as masterclasses in disciplines such as Spanish Web and Dance Trapeze. Halfway through the week, you will have the opportunity to specialise on one particular discipline to allow you time to refine and develop your skills ahead of the final piece.
The Aerial for Dancers course is an intensive week’s training. If you are not suitably prepared it can feel like a full-on week. So it’s important that you (and your body) know what you are letting yourself in for. Aerial is a physically a demanding activity. It requires strength, stamina and good levels of physical fitness. We do all we can to balance the course and ensure it is suitable for aerialists at the very beginning of their aerial journey, but there’s no denying that it’s a full on workout - however you look at it!
This one week intensive aerial course is suitable for dancers, physical theatre practitioners, gymnasts, martial artists or anyone with a keen sense of movement. It is a perfect introduction to aerial and no previous experience is required.
We have a programme of flexibility and strength exercises that we can send any participants pre-course to ensure they are doing all they can to fully prepare.
The course consists of 20 hours of aerial tuition across the week. Classes start at 11am and run until 4pm daily - with a lunchbreak factored into the timetable. There is a performance and the opportunity to film your routine on Friday afternoon (friends and family can be invited).
