Airhedz Aerial Training 2018/19

Based in Whitstable and Faversham in Kent, Airhedz offer courses in aerial skills such as rope, aerial fabric (aka silks), cocoon (aka hammock), aerial yoga and aerial hoop. We also provide mobile workshops, choreographic works and research. If you would like to know anything more or get involved, please contact us on


Founder, Tina Carter, is also a world-leader in Accessible Aerial, working internationally with circus schools, individuals and companies to find ways of making the aerial arts available for disabled people. Her research examines historical and contemporary disabled aerialists. A lovely concise film has been edited together of some of the work she was doing in Japan early this year. Watch, enjoy, share!

Absolutely, splendiforously, amazingly, fantastically, and brilliantly fabulous fun and cool (ice cool)! (Youth Circus Taster Session Participant, 2018)

Silk was my favourite. The ribbon and plate spinning. Fun and exciting. Fantastic. Brilliant. Mad. Great. Cool fun! (Young people attending Youth Circus Taster Session, 2018)

I liked the hoop. I liked the knot. I liked them all. Juggling was fascinating. I enjoyed the diabolo; it was fun. (Young people attending Youth Circus Taster Session, 2018)

Just in case I didn’t say it in person, thank you again for your work with the students. It’s been a pleasure having you here again. I can see in the students' work the care you take and precision in what you teach. As I mentioned, I’m always impressed with how much you are able to cover in the time.

Thank you for everything Tina. You really have given me the confidence to succeed. You are an excellent role model. (E15 Acting School)

Tina is a great teacher. Aerial with her is fun, safe, great for personal fitness, confidence and overcoming mental and physical challenges. I would recommend her classes to anyone of any age, fitness level or background.

Kate March (Airhedz for more than ten years)

Tina takes time out to really understand your needs and works through the skills at the right pace to suit you. This makes me trust her 100% which is key to feeling safe up in the air. Tina is just plain awesome!

Penny Clapcott (Performer at Paralympic Opening Ceremony)

Training with Tina over the past few years has not only provided me with the incredible opportunity to learn aerial skills which is something I had secretly wanted to do since I was a teenager, it has also given me incredible stamina and a nice flat tummy.

Christina Schönleber

So much fun and laughter in an inspiring environment! Who would have known that someone who is scared of heights could hang upside down with grace and ease! Thank you for being so nurturing and supportive.

Nina Atkinson (Artistic Director for Loop Dance Company)   

Hugest of thank yous for your (as always) wonderful work this week.       

Lindsey Butcher (Gravity & Levity)

Thank you so much for the opportunity.... What you have all enabled me to find is beyond words, and I promise the girl you met on Monday has gone, and the person you unwrapped on Friday is here for good.
