21st & 22nd March 2020


Bilateral amputee aerialist, Erin Ball, now offers teacher training in her adaptive aerial method. She will be assisted by Vanessa Furlong and Tina Carter on this course.
The course is aimed at Aerial Tutors who are interested in making their work more accessible to those with limb differences.
This is the first time Erin will teach her course in the UK and we at Airhedz are thrilled she has chosen us to host her.
The training will include disability awareness training relevant to the UK, Canada and the US in particular. It will then provide significant hands-on training in the studio exploring different adaptations Erin has discovered, as well as focusing on best practice on how to find further adaptations

“I had the absolute pleasure of participating in Erin Ball’s first Flying Footless workshop yesterday. We worked through a ton of useful information on modifying skills and spotting techniques for lower leg amputees, but I also walked away with a much better understanding of how to work with students with all kinds of different bodies and strengths. I know that working with this material will make me a better coach not only for disabled people, but for all people, period. If you have the chance to take this workshop or bring it to your studio I highly recommend it (the manual is also a wealth of information all on its own).”
