Circus Bodies are Different
We know circus bodies can be incredible instruments of performance and strength. But, when we look to other sports, art forms, and science to guide our training and practice we can see how different the demands of circus are. This course will help you pick apart the knowledge that helps our artists train well and get stronger, and the data that just doesn't apply (and WHY).
We'll touch on everything from how artists approach their training and their body, what training should look like, what flexibility is "normal", how (and when) artists present with injuries, what the most common injuries are, and what to assess in circus skills on the ground and in the air to keep artists safe.
Oh and did I mention WHY! We will discuss WHY each of these things are important for circus bodies to train safely..
