NOVEMBER 10 – 16, 2019
We are doing it again! After our amazing week in Tulum last year, we are excited to announce our second annual intensive in Mexico! Come for a week of skill building in acro, inversions, creative flows, and more.
Same teachers, different location! We have found a new exciting location. We will be hosting our intensive in the quaint city of San Pancho Mexico at the Circo De Los Ninos. It is a non-profit circus school put together by the co-founder of Cirque Du Soleil and Creative Director, Gilles Ste-Croix and his wife Monique Voyer. They have created this space for locals to have an opportunity to experience human empowerment through the circus. Their mission is to “Encourage the holistic development of youth and young adults by improving their artistic, creative, motor and communication skills, as well as strengthening their confidence in taking risks in a secure and safe environment”.
We have the privilege to share this space for a full week of training in this curated space.
With the access to gymnastics mats we will incorporate more tumbling into the curriculum, as well as a dance studio to help develop your acro grace.
Whips, Pops, H2H, Dance Lifts, and some Standing Acro will be included.
Prepare to dive deep into all new creative flows and washing machines. We will spend time on proper alignment, helping you with your fancy footwork, and strengthening your transitions.
Everyday we will be exploring various inversions. Anticipate learning skills such as how to press to handstand, proper inversion alignment, and personalized tips and tricks to help develop your physical practice. Included will be progressions for beginner inverters. You can also expect some thai massage, strengthening activities, and various stretching exercises throughout the week.
We are starting on the morning of the 10th at 9am, please make sure to arrive the day before to get settled and ready to start the next morning.

More about San Pancho:
This year we are trying something different since everyone has many different specificities. You can find Airbnb as cheap as $15 USD a night to whatever your budget may include. There’s loads of delicious restaurants to eat from in the area including vegetarian. If you are on a budget, the local grocery area has beyond affordable foods which you can prepare at home. We both love visiting San Pancho for a few reasons. For one, the night life is phenomenal. They close off the main road (which is the major thoroughfare through the town) for live music and performances. Secondly, they have a large beautiful beach to hang out during your down time. And lastly, the city has a great vibe, is super easy to get around by foot, and you will have lots of time to explore the area during the breaks.

For Ladybase, movement is an essential part of life. She spends countless hours on her yoga mat, playing and exploring with the circus arts and Acro. She is happiest in her creative mode! Her passion has spread internationally teaching in numerous countries. Melanie is certified in Vinyasa Yoga, as well as Level 1 AcroVinyasa, Yin Training, Lead with Love Yoga mentorship, and has taken the Born to Teach Bossy Pedagogy Course. Melanie also has a background in Transpersonal Counselling-Psych, and she feels immensely passionate about merging this training with her love of movement. Part of what fascinates Ladybase about Acro is the healing that can happen when humans train and play together. Melanie believes Acro is a platform that gives people a wonderful way to practise trust, communication, and build community. Her zeal for Acro lies in teaching intricate washing machines and “out of the box” explorations.
