Safety, technique & etiquette

Our Teacher Training course is recognized by American Circus Educators, NASM & AFFA and sets high standards for safety, proper technique and class etiquette. The aim of the Aerial Physique Teacher Training program is to prepare and train highly qualified & knowledgeable aerialists to become seasoned instructors. The program will provide instructors full comprehension and mastery of proven methods pioneered by Aerial Physique and will correctly and safely prepare professional aerial silk instructors worldwide.  We now offer 4 levels of certification ranging from Beginner Aerial Silks Instructor through Master Trainer. Upon passing each level of curriculum, instructors will become certified by Aerial Physique. 

Applicants must be over the age of 18 to apply. 

"Aerial Physique Teacher Training is a fantastic program!  I enrolled as a non-teacher, hoping to improve my fundamental skills and to train with Jill Franklin, but I gained so much more from the experience.  Not only is Jill a gifted instructor, she is incredibly generous in the way she shares her knowledge, talent and experience.  She has created courses that ensure every student goes away armed with the ability to safely, correctly and effectively teach and train…and she makes it fun!  The support materials and resources are awesome too; I reference them daily.  Teachers as well as aerialists can benefit from the comprehensive, professional information presented in the program."
