Improver Aerials

Sunday October 19, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Improvers Aerials

Join Ben and Shani for an afternoon of flipping and fun!

This workshop is designed for dancers familiar with airsteps – but you don’t need to be a pro! Teachers Benjamin Cook and Shani Ackford will guide you through each aerial, teaching you how to prep and then throw. You will also learn excellent drills for jumping and landing, basing your partner, spotting, and strength.

Safety is our first concern, stamina second. We will be using spotters as we move through each aerial’s preps. We will cover a selection of each section’s aerials. Along with aerials, you will learn different flipping and jumping exercises to assist your future training.

Find a Partner

**This is a workshop where we do not rotate partners so we ask that you find someone you feel comfortable with**

This is someone you trust. As a follow, you feel comfortable being lifted by this leader. As a leader, you feel comfortable lifting this follow.

What level should I be?

You should have done at least one other aerials course before, and felt comfortable and capable with the aerials that you did. You don’t necessarily need to have them practiced and polished, but simply to be comfortable learning them!
