Apr 18: Beginner Aerials & Teacher Training with Scott Cupit
Join us for workshops with guest instructor Scott Cupit to learn high flying aerials and insider information on how he develops the Swing Patrol teaching team. We have an awesome day of top notch learning planned for you. Register today!
Reach new heights with our beginner aerials workshop and learn lifts and tricks characteristic to Lindy Hop. No experience required, however, dancers should know an 8-count swing out for dancing into the aerials. Dancers must sign up with a partner as we will not be rotating partners during the workshop. A Pair Pass includes one base and one flyer. Advanced registration is required and will not be available at the door. Get excited and come fly with us!
Location: Westdale United Church (99 North Oval, Hamilton, ON)
Pair Pass: $120
Observation Fee: $15
Early Registration (by Dec 31)
Pair Pass: $100
Things to remember…
Wear comfortable clothes that allow for free movement, free of belts or zippers that may catch, long sleeve shirts to avoid skin friction, sneakers with good support, and pants for flyers who will be going upside-down!
Water, snacks, deodorant, mints, band aids, spare shirts, and a small towel for the sweat! 🙂
Learn more about how to develop your dance classes to create the type of culture and environment you want as a teacher so your students get the best possible experience from the moment they walk in the door. No teaching experience required, however, dancers should have a basic understanding of Lindy Hop, feel comfortable dancing a swing out, and be prepared to dance as a part of the workshop. Bring any burning questions for Scott and let’s get learning!
