An exciting and unique Icarian workshop is coming to Berlin for the first time! Alfonso (@alfonsodoesacro) and Alberto (@betsinlao), two of the most talented and experienced Icarian teachers in Europe, have prepared an amazing weekend full of their best Icarian tricks and ideas. Intermediate to advanced material (please check the prerequisites) awaits you. This is definitely an exceptional opportunity to bring your Icarian practice to the next level!


  • Quick review of the basics: cleaning up your tempos/straight throws and discovering new variations will allow you to get your maximum height and accuracy. Challenging Icarians will become much easier afterward.
  • Linking pops: one of the most exciting practices that requires precision and focus. Learn how to link the pops you know, not only the easy ones.
  • Big throws: as a base, you will use your whole body to throw and catch pops, while the flyer will learn to rotate in all directions. Fun and adrenaline is guaranteed here. Expect tricks at the level of castaway and martini. Other variations like whale front tuck will be one of our training. 
  • Icarian foot juggling: one of the most challenging practices, especially for bases, where you mostly use the power and ability of your legs. We’ll do different drills that will help you to have more stability and confidence. 
  • Cartwheel pops: dynamic tricks to cartwheel into throne with half/full turn and variations
  • Spotting skills: knowing how to spot all the tricks properly will give you a better understanding of the technique and make the practice completely safe for everyone involved.
  • Physical conditioning and recovery drills for Icarian

You will enjoy this full program wrapped in a safe and fun environment where the teachers will bring their technical, challenging and helpful approach to this fascinating discipline. And Alfonso and Alberto certainly know how to further spice it up!

About the instructors:

Alfonso and Alberto are two of the most recognized acro teachers in Europe. The perfect balance between technique and humor, together they have accumulated tons of experience in circus and acrobatics, Icarian Games and standing acro. Alfonso is a Spanish base and Alberto a Mexican flyer (don’t worry if you get messy with the names ;). In their teaching they create an amazing combination of technical language and physical sensations that allow them to reach and help all kinds of students. You can find them teaching and performing around Europe in numerous workshops and festivals like the Dynamic Acro Program or the Icarian Convention. Let yourself be encouraged by their fire energy and enthusiasm to face your limits in a safe and fun environment.
