The Level One Teacher Training course has been created to provide you with a thorough understanding of how to lead Introductory through Beginner Level aerial silk classes. The curriculum is geared to teach you key concepts that will help you to develop a solid teaching philosophy, an eye for clean technique and the tools to excel as an aerial teacher. 


The foundation is the most important part of an aerialist's training and the same goes for teaching. To ensure safety and success for you and your future students, the course focuses on risk assessment, optimal technique, essential modifications & progressions for aerial skills, clear cueing, spotting, basic anatomy, common injuries, stretching & conditioning methods, Pilates concepts & exercises, along with basic rigging, class structure, lesson plans & the business side of aerial arts.
