The Spin City Footlocks Module 1 Instructor Workshop will provide you with a fresh selection of moves that use footlock skills to develop your Aerial Silks syllabus. Footlock Skills are a great way of building a beginners Aerial Silks repertoire, without the need to be able to invert. This is fundamental in the development of beginners. Footlock Skills are often a level up from hitch skills, requiring the student to develop their balance and coordination on fabric, to increase their grip strength and tolerance in fabric wraps. The beauty of Footlocks is that from the same basic standing position. Footlock skills are so varied and as such, for the purposes of our Instructor Training, we have split them into two modules. This instalment (Module 1) will cover all the basics, along with simpler, more supportive Footlock wraps. Module 2 will cover what we would call progressive Footlock Skills, that may feature a more complicated wrap, a less supported position, require additional strength or flexibility, more stamina to enter and exit or moves that are more challenging to spot as an instructor.

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.


This unit will recap the basics relating to the footlock and explores cross-overs with transferable skills in a hitch.


Our second unit is the main body of this course. We will cover over 30 different move variations including a range of poses on a single footlock with silks together, split silks and double footlock skills. Each move will be detailed with teaching points, safety points, progressions, regressions, and common problems.


Footlocks are a great place to start developing stamina within aerial silks. This unit will provide a set of fixed combinations, as well as a combinations toolbox to inspire your own combinations and freestyle activities. We’ll finish with a series of strength and conditioning exercises suitable for beginner and intermediate learners.


Unit 4 explores how the footlock can be used to allow for technique practice both on the floor and in the air.


Health and safety is fundamental to effective aerial classes. In this unit, we will look at key health and safety concepts such as public liability insurance and risk assessments. We will also cover specific aerial silks health and safety considerations, such as foot, post and tail positions and safe dismounts.
