Circus activities that you can do in the Circus Essentials program include anything that you have access to the equipment needed for training. Use your living room, your back porch, your aerial rig, or a training studio! If you can find space to train it, and have reliable internet access, we can help you!
We will meet three days a week (Mon/Wed/Fri) for 4 1/2 hours of group training, including a warm-up, flexibility, and conditioning. We’ll end each day with specialized workshops and creativity sessions, including an opportunity to share what you are working on with your peers. You will also have three one-hour private lessons each week—just you and a coach to help you with your specific needs in your focus area while also helping you develop and refine your fitness plan.
We will be meeting via zoom sessions. Therefore, students training on material that has potential for physical injury must have another person nearby for safety reasons. This person needs to be capable of dialing 911 in case of an emergency.
Participants should have the following items on hand:
- Yoga roll (36″ long is ideal, but the shorter options will work)
- 2 large (5″) yoga blocks
- Two lacrosse or tennis balls
- Variety pack of therabands (light, medium, and heavy—approximately 4′ long each)
- A clear wall space or door
We suggest participants have a laptop to access the internet – a phone or iPad will work, but may be a bit more frustrating as a tool.
