Open to anyone who has taken the Introductory Level Aerial Teacher Training, this is the next level in understanding how to teach, spot and analyze skills on fabrics.

This workshop will guide you though the curriculum created by Nimble Arts™ to provide clear and effective progressions and spotting techniques for beginner / intermediate fabrics students. We’ll focus on body mechanics, conditioning & stretching while creating a foundation of body awareness and safety.

PRE-REQUISITES: Introduction to Teaching Aerials
Be comfortable executing, without prompting, skills from Nimble Arts™ DVD: Aerial Fabric Beginning Level 2 including cross back straddle, and be comfortable inverting off the ground.

Exceptions to this skill level requirement can be made for teachers with physical limitations that do not hinder their ability to be competent teachers AND spotters at the Foundation level. (For example: someone in a foot cast with previous experience who can still spot and execute some skills, or someone with a shoulder injury who academically knows the skills required and are comfortable spotting.)
