WORKSHOP – Sunday August 15th at 1pm – 3pm central time:

Ginger is thrilled to bring an individual sign-up version of her acclaimed Teaching Aerials For Plus-Sized Bodies workshop to a computer near you! There are limited spots available so sign-up asap to secure yours! This workshop is being offered at a discounted rate of $50 for 2 hours.

This 2 hour online workshop, presented by plus size aerialist and burlesque performer / instructor Ginger Snaps, is designed to prepare aerial teachers and studios to work with plus size students. We all know that circus, like so many athletic art forms, is rife with sizeism and this is greatly exacerbated for students in larger bodies.

The workshop includes a lecture followed by a live spotting / teaching demo and Q&A that will leave the attendee with a better understanding of these struggles, how to address them in the classroom, and adjusted spotting techniques.

We love to say that “circus is for everybody” and it’s time that we show that!
