Level Definitions

We recognise that choosing the level appropriate for you in every skill can be confusing so we’ve tried to help out a little below and the individual class descriptions also have guidelines for further clarification.

So just because you’re a skilled fabric practitioner that doesn’t mean you have to take the same level across all your technique options.

Please note that some class levels are combined levels.

If at the end of reading you still don’t know, contact info@eadf.co.uk

Explorer

If you’re either pretty new to aerial or this is indeed your first aerial class and you don’t know your straddle climb from a side-pickup, then this is the level for you. These classes are tailored for those who just want to give it a go through to those with slightly more experience.

Improver

So you’ve been taking aerial classes for a while now but are still very much learning your trade, this is the level for you.

Typically, these classes are for those who train in aerial at least two hours per week.

At the EADF several of these classes will be offered alongside explorer level but don’t fear, your tutors will be able to keep everyone learning and moving whatever your current level.

Intermediate

This is that slightly tricky (but also exciting place to be) where you’re definitely beyond Improver level but you’re not quite ready to step up to the skilled level. This year we’ve tried to add in at least a couple of these with you in mind.

Skilled

Aimed at the more confident and competent aerialists who know their stuff. If you are looking to improve your technique and find your own creative voice in the air, well, you’ve found your level right here.

Advanced 

This level is for professionals or highly skilled practitioners who have maintained a high-level aerial practice over several years. Ideally you train regularly on your chosen equipment and have found the right balance for you of technique to creative balance. There is however always more to learn, now that’s exciting isn’t it?
