SOAR Aerial Dance’s teacher training immersion covers our fundamental aerial hoop skills. You’ll learn to teach skills like mermaid and straddle back, entries and exits, conditioning skills and a thorough warm-up and cool-down. We’ll even cover an introduction to spin theory. Trainees will have a chance to work on the apparatus, practice teaching fellow aerialists, and get answers to your questions.
We’ll also cover injury prevention, troubleshooting, and skill modification. When you complete our training, you’ll have confidence in yourself as an instructor, in your understanding of the “why” and “how” of what you’re teaching, and in your ability to meet your students’ needs.
In addition to the curriculum of skills, this course provides training in planning a warm-up, how to spot safely and effectively, classroom management, overseeing multiple students at once, and the business of teaching aerial arts. You’ll leave class each day with homework to tackle, helping you prepare for the following day’s class.
Notes, handouts, and additional information will be provided. One month and six months after the course concludes, you’ll get a personal check-in with Gena to provide ongoing support, see how you’re doing, and answer any questions you have.
