Course Description

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.

UNIT 1 – INTRODUCTION TO DOUBLE CROCHET-DOUBLE CRUCIFIX

Double Crochet–Double Crucifix builds from two skills: the Crochet and the Crucifix. This unit will recap pre-requisite skills for the Double Crochet-Crucifix covered in the Foundation Level course, 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.

UNIT 2 – DOUBLE CROCHET-DOUBLE CRUCIFIX ENTRIES

There are a number of methods to enter the basic Double Crochet-Double Crucifix position. Many are based on the order upon which you put each of the four elements around the body. Within this Unit, we will provide you with the main basic entries (entries 1-5) then give you some of our favourite variations based on other classic aerial silks moves.

UNIT 3 – DOUBLE CROCHET-DOUBLE CRUCIFIX SKILLS

The skills in this unit all lead on from the Double Crochet-Double Crucifix base position. We will look at Crochet-based climbs, using a Triple Wrap to create balances, movements based around Swing Seat, Corset and New York Cross Back, finishing with a few isometric holds using Single or Double Crucifix theory.

UNIT 4 – COMBINATIONS AND CONDITIONING

Double Crochet-Double Crucifix skills are multifunctional when it comes to combinations. You can use them as an entry point to a sequence, to link between moves or a standalone combination in their own. There are also a great number of Double Crochet-Crucifix strength and conditioning exercises you can incorporate in your classes – here ww’ll provide you with progressions form some of the basic conditioning we covered at Foundation Level.

UNIT 5 – DOUBLE CROCHET-DOUBLE CRUCIFIX SAFETY

The final unit of the course covers Double Crochet-Crucifix-specific health and safety considerations and provides and overview of the health and safety fundamental, covered in our Foundation Silks Instructor Course, including concepts such as public liability insurance and risk assessments.
