This 15-hour training is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the art of dance using the Aerial Hammock. Whether you are a seasoned aerialist or simply love to move, this course will guide you through interesting sequences and help you unlock your creativity.


This course is essential for all aerial arts teachers interested in gaining skills with the Aerial Hammock/Sling because it provides a comprehensive framework for learning the fundamental skills necessary for mastering aerial arts. From safety protocols to building strength and flexibility, this program lays the groundwork for a successful and sustainable aerial practice.


What sets our program apart is the meticulous attention to detail in each foundational skill. We focus not only on the physical techniques but also on fostering a deep understanding of the principles behind this aerial art. This empowers our students to not just replicate movements, but to truly embody and innovate within the art form.
