Level 1 Refresher Course
Instructor Training Date is Saturday June 3rd 2017
We’re having another Ginga Instructor Training course and we want you to join us! The course will be for Ginga Certification for new instructors and a refresher course for current Ginga Instructor Trainees – that’s you!
We are excited to offer this workshop as a way of learning current movements, perfecting basic Ginga Capoeira movements, ground movement positioning, cueing and various techniques. An important part of instructing your first class requires knowing how to introduce Ginga, how to walk through the choreographies, and what movements may require modification for some participants. A part of this refresher course will be dedicated to learning these important skills. We want everyone to be successful teaching their first class or leading songs!
I understand that not everyone who completed the instructor training would like to teach or has the time to have their own class. However, with these skills you can become a support instructor in class and help lead songs or help support new students with their questions. Even join us for on-stage performances at events!
This refresher course will focus more on the details that makes an instructor GREAT! Learning the nuances of instructing will give you the confidence necessary for teaching successfully. Ask yourself what specific things you need help with, be it movement, cueing, energy/liveliness, hand/foot/body positions, kicking, maintaining balance, waist movements, where to take a break during the song you’re instructing…etc. I would like you to bring your questions and we will have support trainers there to help you individually. Personal growth is what this training is about. Therefore, we will be separating you into groups to work on advanced movements.
As a courtesy we will be providing lunch. However, if you are a vegan/vegetarian or have any kind of food allergies then please bring your own lunch and snacks.
