THE CLASS​ STRUCTURE

  • The first half-term in 2019 will be led by Sarah Walker Down and assisted by Jessica Urwin. Suzy-Jade Carter also assists on occasion. The second half-term will be run by Tina Carter.
  • Class will begin with a led warm-up. Once you have attended a few times, you may be asked to begin warming yourselves up. We suggest: light cardio to get the body warmed followed by mobilising the joints and then light stretching as appropriate for the class e.g. warm-up straddles, pikes, splits positions but ensure you stay within your range of movement so as not to weaken the muscles before working. 
  • Please note that if you are late for the warm-up, you may not be able to participate in the class!

  • The first half-term will focus on trapeze and hoop with elements of fabric/rope/hammock to support the learning.
  • The second half-term will focus more on fabric when Tina returns.
  • The course may be attended by beginners, returners and more experienced aerialists and therefore variations will be offered throughout. Please ensure you listen carefully and follow instructions suitable for your current experience and knowledge.
  • At any point, if you are unsure of what you are supposed to do, or need additional support or help, please do not be afraid to ask
  • As well as technical teaching, you will be guided in appropriate conditioning and may have the opportunity to play in response to tasks set by the teachers.
  • Sessions will end with a led cool-down.
  • Please note that to run smoothly, we ask that everyone helps set the space, moving crash-mats into position and being ready to start on time.
  • Please ensure you read our Codes of Conduct before attending. They offer information on what to wear, punctuality, cancellation and photographic policies.

Happy Dangling!
