"The Intro to Aerial Teaching workshop was absolutely eye opening for me; I don't think I ever truly knew how to teach absolute beginners until I worked with Elsie & Destiny. As someone with 20 years of dance training & years of professional performance experience, I felt it was hard to relate to students that may have no experience or training at all in dance, gymnastics, or movement. The way the broke down material was so effective & most importantly safe. I realized I had some gaps in my own curriculum and this workshop definitely refined my knowledge and has help me to give my students the well rounded aerial education I WISH I had when I was a beginner. Thank you Elsie for being so open in sharing your knowledge. This program will definitely help to create a safer aerial teaching community."
