Teacher Training

Are you an aerialist and would you like to improve your teaching skills? Do you know exactly what to do in an emergency during class and in what cases you are personally liable? Would you like to create a lesson plan or learn the latest injury prevention strategies?


International expert Amanda Miles will come to Rotterdam and give a teacher training in the Tall Tales Studio. Her in-depth and holistic approach is intended for teachers who want to develop their teaching skills as well as aerial acrobats and artists who want to learn to pass on their knowledge. This five-day course covers four core aerial disciplines: trapeze, hoop, silks and rope.


The course closes with a teaching sample session, providing the teacher trainees the opportunity to create a curriculum and test real learning situations.

Be safe:

- All training and use of equipment is at your own risk.

- You can only use the rigging system if you have been instructed and cleared. Because the rigging system is a bit unusual, we need to be strict about the use of the rigging. 

- Check if the aerial apparatus and the longe are secured correctly and undamaged before using.

- The Circus Studio can not be held responsible for any accidents, injuries or damages, including those that happen if our material breaks down. 

- Never train aerials alone. You are only allowed to use aerial equipment when there are other users in the training space.

Be helpful:

If you are the last user in the Circus Studio, please make sure all the materials are in the storage, the windows and doors are closed and that the lights are turned off. There is a light button when you enter the Circus Studio Training space, on the column close to the sound system, in the dressing room and toilet.

Camera surveillance - We have camera surveillance. There are two cameras in the training space. The images are automatically deleted after two weeks. We only keep the images for a longer time in case of special events (theft, accidents, etc.). We have the camera surveillance for multiple reasons: 

  • To secure safety for people and material. If an accident happens, something goes missing or there is a problem with the rigging we can check what happened.
  • To do control moments: since the studio is an unsupervised space, every now and then we will do a random check to see if everybody remembered to check in and pay, when they are in the studio.  

Own risk - All training and use of equipment is at your own risk. The Circus Studio can not be held responsible for any accidents, including those that happen if our material breaks down.
