Sling / Hammock Teacher Training: Foundation Level


Feb 21 - 22, 2019
Cost: $395

This workshop will guide you though the curriculum created by Nimble Arts™ to provide clear and effective progressions and spotting techniques for beginner aerial sling (loop) students. We'll focus on body mechanics, conditioning & stretching while creating a foundation of body awareness and safety. Working with skills that can be executed close to the ground focus is on body awareness, fabric placement, spotting techniques and meeting the conditioning needs of novice and beginner students including skills with the sling closed and open and drops.

Completion of Introduction to Teaching Aerials workshop.
Be comfortable executing Foundation level skills: this includes, but is not limited basic aerial skills such as pull over, knee hang, and inverting off the ground.
Experience on trapeze, fabric or sling/hammock is required.
If you are not sure if you are at the necessary skill level please contact Elsie at

Note that participants who do not meet the required experience level will be asked to sit out of the workshop and will not be refunded. 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.) Please contact Elsie at for more information.

Thursday: 9 am - 5 pm
