Keeping Your Zoom Classes Engaging

Instructor: Sarah Reis

This class will introduce a variety of games and challenges teachers can play with students to make Zoom instruction fun and engaging while also productive. A list of games will be introduced and ideas on how to integrate them and modify for age/level will be discussed. Not just for Acro Class, the ideas outlined in this class will be useful in all genres.

Teaching Limbering Without Spotting

Instructor: Drew Burgess

This session will cover the rudiments of limbering safely and efficiently. We will focus on training the spine to separate and lengthen while maintaining strength and stability throughout the entire body. Attendees can expect to see drills, progressions, and variations of kneeling and standing bridges, arabians, limbers, and walkovers. All progressions will be demonstrated without the need for spotting.

Keeping Advanced Kids Advancing

Instructor: Trish Thompson-Creamer

Keep your advanced students progressing, while keeping them safe, by introducing variations to skills they have already mastered. Cartwheels, walkovers, balances and more can be used as the base for spectacular tricks that will leave the audience wondering ‘how did they do that!!’ This class will give you many ideas for training new variations that your students will love from master Acro teacher Trish Thompson Creamer!

Teaching Balancing & Tumbling on Acro-Islands

Instructor: Vicki Fletcher

This class will focus on balancing and tumbling for all ages and levels. We will look at different entrances and exits for balances to keep dancers progressing and challenged. Drills for tumbling will centre around body shaping and positioning to build strong confident tumblers. Truly understanding body shaping will help dancers achieve tumbling tricks faster once we get back into the studio and spotting is possible!
