Penasco Theater Collective,
Join Danya Xena of the Acro SuperHeroes for this awesome Acro and Social Justice Teacher Training through the SuperHero Circus Academy!
$1000-1500 Early Registration (by March 30th)
$1500-2000 Regular Price
• Deposit will hold your space and the early registration price
• Deposit is transferable (to another TT, or another participant that meets the prereqs) but non-refundable.
REGISTRATION AND DEPOSITS REQUIRED BY 30 March
Registration and deposits are required 10 weeks before the start of the contact time. This is to give students enough time to adequately engage the 10-week pre-course material.
The training will only go forward once 8 people are registered, there is a maximum of 12 people that can register.
The investment includes the main training, basic accommodation (excluding food and transportation to and from venue) as well as social justice themed guided prereqs and support for the post-course personalized project.
On completion of this course, successful participants will receive a certification through the SuperHero Circus Academy. This is NOT a ‘participation only’ based teacher training (as in by paying your fees and participation fully or partially you automatically receive certification). Participants must complete the Pre-Course Work, before the course starts, and must successfully complete, reflect and report on their post-course project in order to receive certification.
Participants that do not adequately complete all components of the course will not receive certification.
This intimate training is limited to 12 participants. The small group will ensure an intimate environment to explore both the parts of this practice that bring us the most joy and the most challenge.
1 – PRE-COURSE WORK:

This course is best suited for people that already have teaching experience. We will go deep into communication and group facilitation – some previous group teaching/facilitation will provide context and a good foundation to add the social justice lens to.
SOCIAL JUSTICE Pre-Reqs:
Previous Social Justice experience and education is an asset but not required. What is required is a desire to learn, reflect, unlearn, and be challenged. A passion for making the world a better place is the foundation for successful participants.
