This video is groundbreaking for the aerial community. For years, other communities have been able to produce instructional videos for sale, even risky skills, like bullwhips and fire arts videos. However the aerial community as a whole has lacked any publications of real usability until recent years, none of them that address skills for trapeze. With very high quality videos and a script from an experienced, safety trained teacher, information can reach those students who just need to review what they learn in classes, or the students that live hours from any studio and can only attend workshops. It can also help spread technique, make vocabulary universal, or be a guide for other teachers.
