Prerequisites

We do require require you have some acrobatic skills. We need you to honestly and accurately asses whether the following skills are accessible/of ease to you (while working with someone of similar skill level) as a base OR flyer, at the time of application you must be able to accomplish the skills without a spotter helping (they can be there for safety).

On your application you will be asked to rate your comfort level in the following…. while they are not prerequisites, the more experience you come with the more you will gain out of the training!

Send us 1 video

1-2 minute acrobatic flow of your choice. The video should represent where you are at skill-wise, however, it doesn’t need to be all of the craziest things you can do—think elements from the preqs! The video also doesn’t need to be of high production quality, a quick one on your cell phone is fine.
