Kids and Teens Summer Camps

Serious training that is seriously fun! Let your inner circus star shine and get one step closer to Cirque Du Soleil. The Aerial Fit® summer camps are an action packed, fun filled week of aerial sling, static trapeze, circus games and, of course, strengthening and flexibility. Students will learn the fundamentals of what it takes to be a safe and exciting circus star. While learning to climb, flip and perform real circus skills, students are also discovering the empowerment of overcoming challenges. During the week long camp each day will cover the following disciplines and activities. Students will be learning a short choreographic sequence on the static trapeze and aerial sling. The majority of the time will be spent on the apparatus in the air. Students will also work on other circus disciplines such as handstands, ground acrobatics, flexibility, object manipulation (juggling and spinning poi), and group circus games designed to teach aspects of each of these disciplines. Circus skills build strength, flexibility, balance, full body coordination, concentration and endurance all the while in a safe, playful environment. Aerial Fit is a safe, non-judgmental and  non-competitive environment. We always put safety first, then we focus on having fun while building […]

Aerial Sling Teacher Training, Spring 2017

Aerial Sling Teacher Training, Fall 2017 We love teaching because we get to share our passion with others, we get to nerd out on progressions, and we get to spend our days with awesome people who inspire us to be our best. Teaching aerial is an incredibly rewarding experience, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have its own challenges as well. This is the first year we are opening up our Aerial Fit teacher training program to aerialists from outside our own studio. We waited this long because we firmly believe that becoming a great teacher takes time, practice, patience, and mentorship, and we were reluctant to offer a course in teacher training. After much reflection, we decided that if we design the course correctly, it can help new and experienced aerial instructors to be more effective, and can be a great starting point on the journey to becoming a great instructor. We’re excited to offer this course to aerialists ready to take that step in their journey! Our course involves 4 full days, in which you’ll learn a lot about teaching methodology, creating progressions, teaching to different types of learners and different body types, and of course, plenty […]

Visiting Instructors

Visiting Instructors

Interested in teaching a workshop at Aerial Fit? Read on to learn more about us and our teachers and students, then contact us with more information about yourself. These are the qualifications we evaluate when considering hosting a visiting instructor. First and foremost we want to give our students an opportunity to learn from experienced instructors. Teaching Experience: We want to know how much experience you have teaching the discipline and skills you are planning on presenting. At the time of this writing, the owners of Aerial Fit have just under 9,000 hours each of teaching time on aerial apparatuses and have developed very clear progressions for students of all levels. As a basic guideline, approximately 500 hours of teaching experience would be expected with visiting instructors. Please let us know how many teaching hours you have for the discipline you’d like to present. This should not include training time or performance time. We understand that it can be hard to get experience and the following criteria help tremendously in making up for less teaching experience. Home base teaching location: We want to know where you have taught in the past. Please let us know the main location where you have […]
