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. This course will refresh your knowledge of the foundation skills for the Double Crochet–Double Crucifix, provide you with a series of different entries, and a whole host of progressive skills to expand your teaching repertoire.

Assessment for this course will include short theory assessments at the end of each unit and a technical assessment; you need to be able to complete the designated core moves with safe and correct technique. These are identified throughout the course and will be submitted at the end of the course via the online learning platform.


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 sed 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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
