This course is for aerial coaches who are working with or want to be working with amputees. This course focuses on lower extremity amputees. The focus is on aerial fabric skills, though some sling, trapeze, aerial hoop and rope considerations and techniques are covered.
You will learn how to safety and confidently spot and work with amputees in the air. The course covers terminology, different set ups for prosthetic limbs and how they affect aerial arts, warm ups, spotting amputees, modifications and specific skills created for amputees (by amputees), conditioning for the lower body, stretching and much more.
There is a manual (discounted with the course) to go along with the course and a video resource library (both for a separate fee). Included in the course is continuing support and a mention on the Kingston Circus Arts website so that amputees across the globe can find teachers who are trained to work with them.
