This new syllabus is designed for teachers and students who are interested in learning and understanding the connection between aerial and floor movements. It teaches not only aerial skills and tricks, but also how these elements can be seamlessly merged with dance movements on the ground. Our detailed “Step by step” floor & aerial exercises contain all the information required to effectively link movements into sequences: music, counts, starting position, space, tips, and outcomes. This book also provides a variety of support materials, including: descriptions of aerial rigging equipment, important instructions for safety and spotting, lesson examples with time management, and illustrations of essential aerial dance positions. It also contains a glossary of dance terminology. In its unique synthesis of yoga, ballet, contemporary dance, and circus, Aerial Dance for Dancers offers teachers and dancers inclusive access to the resources of this innovative, expressive movement style.
