Professional Acrobatics Training

Welcome at the third edition of the Performing Acrobatix Programme, a two week intensive training for partner acrobatics in Berlin.

Additional to the partner acrobatics training there will be dance and physical theater classes to spice up our performing skills on stage.
warm-up and handstands
partner acrobatics – technique, drills and calibrations
partner acrobatics – dynamic and group skills/lunge
* Hours are subject to change, this is just to get an idea how the day is structured.
Spread the Madness! We want to challenge you! Not only in the tricks, but also in taking the good amount of risk! Carry each other, jump on each other, throw each other and most important trust each other! We gonna clean up the basics, work loads on tempos and progressions towards more complex tricks. The spring edition is especially focused on calibrating with several people and work on group skills like banquine, three highs, dynamic throws, etc. We also create space to work on your specific tricks with each duo/trio/group.The idea is to give you tools how to continue working on these without a teacher or lunge.

The spring edition will be focused on group acrobatics. You can join the program alone or with a partner/group. If you comes as duo, there will be times to work on your duo skills together in the lunge, but we’ll encourage everyone to swap around and calibrate with each other in the whole group (if covid rules allow that at that time). Currently Germany has 2G rules in place, which means participation is only possible with the status vaccinated or recovered.
