Spain Teacher Training

August 1 - August 28

Program

Program

Our Partner Acrobatics teacher training program offers an opportunity to intensively train for four weeks, whilst learning the skills and tools to teach successful acro classes and workshops. We encourage and support our students in developing their own teaching style, based on the latest principals of neuroscience and motor learning and our own extensive teaching experience.

Moreover plenty of time will be dedicated to improve your personal acrobatic practice. Some time will be dedicated to prepare public performances and work on the aesthetics of your acro moves.

In our Partner Acrobatics programs we cover many different acrobatic disciplines: standing acrobatics, handstand training, washing machines, trio tricks, Icarian games, to name a few.

This physical intensity is balanced out with our prehab program and therapeutic sessions, which aim to heal and restore the body.

Prerequisites

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:)
