FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION
The Spin City Advanced Aerial Hoop Instructor Course will cover the highest level of instruction in Aerial Hoop. This course is largely practical in nature, concentrating on three different elements of advanced training. Firstly, we will begin by covering an additional 40 moves, the final block of moves in our core syllabus with the focus at this level on strong postural alignment, clean execution and bilateral training in all movements. This will be followed by an in-depth look at dynamic movement; we will be increasing the difficulty level of the rolls covered in our Intermediate course then adding on the core advanced drops, both top to bottom bar and drops that move between two different grip points. The final section of practical is an exploration of the possibilities above the hoop both on a single and double point. This will help add a level of creativity to your advanced work and give you an area to further develop with your students.
The theoretical side of the advanced training course begins with principles of injury prevention and injury management. Our advanced teaching and coaching unit looks at how your role as an instructor will develop as students move into a more autonomous stage of their training and how you can foster creativity safely in a class environment. Advances to progress chains are noted, along with the development of core skills and beneficial areas of cross training are identified such as advanced flexibility. The final unit focuses on health and safety considerations when working with an advanced student body with an exploration of spotting dynamic movement to finish.
