What You Will Learn: This training focuses on Level 1 Silks skills as well as spotting, safe practices, teaching methods, and classroom management. We strongly emphasize progressions, particularly to develop strong inversions. At the end of the week, you will walk away with 12-18 months of studio teaching material. You will work with the classic fabric skills as well as several variations and sequences we’ve developed over the years.
We begin with body positioning of the shoulders, ribs, and hips before progressing to climbs and descents, and foot locks. Skills in the knot help develop foundational technique in an accessible way. We continue the week with single foot lock skills and sequences, followed by hip and shoulder blocks, double foot locks, and inversion progressions. Skills sessions conclude with hip key progressions and 'round the back/arabesque. Clinics include spotting techniques and core engagement progressions, while discussion topics include safety, teaching philosophies, classroom management, and an open Q&A. The training concludes with practice teaching.
