This annual teacher training is designed by Studio Manager and Aerial Program Director, Nicole McCauley. She and other in-house aerial instructors will guide you through this comprehensive 12 hour Teacher Training. Prerequisite: at least two years rigorous aerial training/experience and background in either teaching and/or performing aerial, or obtaining teaching certification in a movement modality such as yoga or Pilates.
Teachers will delve into the mechanics of a progressive curriculum for multi-apparatus. There is a focus on safety, alignment, precise aerial body positioning, and conditioning exercises specifically designed to build aerial flexibility and strength. You’ll learn how to teach students the completion of fundamental skills, so that they understand and apply the transfer of skills across multi-apparatus, and into the basics of sequencing and choreography.
Once you’ve completed and passed the MASC Teacher Training, you will be eligible to teach Aerial Arts Classes and Series at MASC Studio.
