2 day Aerial Symposium 2019 – ‘Dissecting Aerial + Accessible Aerial’.

We’re delighted to announce the 2nd 2-day Aerial Symposium ‘Dissecting Aerial + Accessible Aerial’ presented in partnership with One Dance UK and The Point, Jan 19th & 20th.

Speakers will again include Serenity Forchion Smith and Gary Carter alongside James Wellington, (Perform Health – circus physio specialist), Ana Prada and many other inspiring practitioners from the world of aerial and sports/dance science medicine. There’ll be both practical sessions, round table discussions and lectures e.g. ‘applying periodisation to aerial practice’, ‘hyper mobility and its implications’ plus we’ll be hearing from Amelia Cavallo about her adventures as a blind professional aerialist and asking what do we mean when we talk about making aerial skills accessible.

We’ll be posting full details of the programme here in the next month but get those dates in your diary Jan 19th & 20th at The Point, Leigh Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire, SO509DE.

Tickets are now on sale via The Point priced £125 for the full weekend and £70 for one day, https://www.thepointeastleigh.co.uk/

Some concessions will be available for participants on the Teacher Training Intensive (immediately before this event) and One Dance UK members.

Feedback from last years event:

I found the weekend well-organised, open and friendly, and excitedly I was able to make connections to my own practice from all the speakers’ presentations. It was useful hearing, seeing and testing out ideas about how the body functions, from the dissected to the practically implemented.  

‘I found the speakers really inspirational and their sessions are already having a direct impact on my aerial training, my acupuncture and massage practice, and on my own research. The space was lovely and I found the atmosphere incredibly pleasant with both speakers and practitioners really seeming to appreciate one another’s diverse experiences.’

‘…such an inspirational weekend.  I have come away blathering on about neuro science to anyone who will listen and am fuelled with a new sense of purpose which I had been wobbling with in recent months.’ 

‘What a wonderful weekend, I’ve come away feeling really energised and full of information –  such a great mix of speakers on different topics. ‘Already looking forward to next one’
