Aerial Arts Hoop Theory starts at the very beginning, teaching instructors everything they need to know about correct placement and technique so their students will have the building blocks to progress safely from one level to the next. Aerial Arts Teacher Training and Certification courses provide extensive training in spotting and progression so the teachers feel confident, knowledgeable and inspired to teach Aerial Arts.
The course is two days, 3 hours each day. During the course you will:
-Learn the first 7 levels of Aerial Arts syllabus; Primary - Level 6 including balancing, postures, spinning, strength and endurance

You do not need any apparatus or a demonstrator to attend the Aerial Arts Hoop Theory course, the only equipment you require is a small piece of rope to learn basic knots. You will learn by watching our course conductors spot and demonstrate. At the completion of your course you will receive a certificate and a certified Aerial Arts Hoop Theory badge. The course also includes a manual and marketing material. Following this, the next step is certifying in our Aerial Arts Hoop Practical course.
