FOCUSfish is proud to announce the launch of the new aerial teacher training certification program. Our first teacher training for FUNDAMENTALS 1 will be the weekend of March 31st and April 1st, 2018.
FUNDAMENTALS 1 training invites all types of fitness experts to take their fitness regimen to new heights, and open up new job opportunities.
While there are many aerial arts training programs populating the fitness scene, there are few that focus on anyone who isn’t already a professional performer or someone highly gifted in aerial arts. AIRabesque strives to give the fitness specialist a sound exercise plan that can be taught to anyone, and still emphasize the grace and strength of a circus performer. Many fitness barre and aerobics-style classes demand repetition and forego form. In AIRabesque, the lesson is quality of line and transition over quantity of movements. Dance fitness in the air (whether a foot, or 20ft off the ground) is AIRabesque.
