Training outside, with and without longe
Training inside in the community house if the weather is bad
Beautiful camping place on the hill
Extra space for massage and (acro)yoga on the first floor
Freshly cooked vegetarian food (optionally vegan or carnivore)
Free use of bicycles

In the workshops we will address a variety of acrobatic disciplines and techniques including building and pitching, handstands, washing machines, flows and sequences, lifts and balances, Icarian and trio tricks.

This training week is open for anyone. You will receive personal instruction to your skill level. If you like, you can attend with your dedicated training partner, but everybody will switch partners during the training, since this will give you a deeper understanding of acrobatics. Upon registration let me know if you’re preferred role is base or flyer (or both).

Our convention will have (at least) 22 workshops and there is always a free training floor. There will be workshops every day, except for sunday. This day is for other kinds of leisure; a walk in the beautiful environment, a bicycle ride (there are bikes at the venue) up the Bükk mountains, or a visit to the famous Lippizaner horses in Silvasvárad. The ancient town of Eger is also nearby with its fortress and thermal bath.

You are invited to do a show together at the village square on the national holiday ‘st Istven” on august 20th.

Nestled in a shady cool tree forest, lies the campground. Please bring your own tent, mat and sleeping bag. Sanitary facilities are basic but sufficient (toilets and showers). There will be three vegetarian meals a day, freshly cooked for you. Our kitchenmaster can cook meat/fish or vegan food on request. You are expected to lend a hand in small tasks like cleaning the tables.

Regular price: € 320 (food and camping included)

Early bird price: € 270 (until June 15)

Discount: participants of the acro-building holidays, in whatever year, can join the whole week for 245 euro
