Double Crochet–Double Crucifix – as the name suggests – is actually two different skill sets. Crochet refers to the position of the fabric on the legs and Crucifix refers to the position of the fabric across the back. The theory section of this course will explore terminology used across the aerial world for this skill and address common mistakes and safety factors relating to the basic Double Crochet-Crucifix position to ensure strong understanding of the fundamentals for this move. The practical elements will provide you with different entry and exit options, followed by poses using the skill as well as combinations and conditioning ideas for your classes.
