Partner acrobatics, dance and theater

“DUO” is a three week intensive training for partner acrobatics in Berlin. The course provides professional coaching in hand-to-hand and dynamic partner acrobatics. Dance and theater classes complete the practice to spice up the performing skills on stage. Throughout the three weeks each duo creates or further develops an act. On the last day of the Performing Acrobatix Programme, the participants get the opportunity to share their research on stage.
