Berlin’s best acro instructors are back this autumn for another acro bonanza weekend. To showcase all the acro on offer in our fair city, there will be 18+ workshops plus plenty of open jam time to meet and mingle. Each round of workshops will offer something for beginners to advanced, so there will always be something for everyone!

And for those who think our mini convention is too mini, we have added a pre-con acro intensive with Nate and Jules, for another day of training before our main event! Nate and Jules are known for their precision and focus on technique, specializing in standing hand-to-hand and foot-to-hand. As a similar-sized duo, they strive to find a feeling of ease and lightness in movement together.

Handstand Workshop
with Mitja Berg

Studio Neukölln
04-05 May 2024 | 16:00 – 19:00
120€ | Bring a friend: 90€ | One-day: 70€

Herz über Kopf – raus aus dem Kopf, rein in den Körper. In dem Workshop lernen wir alle Grundlagen des Handstands. Wir beginnen mit Aufwärmübungen für den ganzen Körper, vor allem aber für Schultern und Handgelenke. Durch Körperbewusstseinsübungen lernen wir einzelne Körperteile wie die Hüfte, die Brust oder die Füße gezielt anzusteuern. Dieses Körperbewusstsein hilft uns dabei auch über Kopf unser Gleichgewicht halten zu können. Außerdem kräftigen wir gezielt die Schultern und die Körpermitte (Core). Ein weiterer wichtiger Bestandteil ist die Mobilität der Schultern und der Beine. Gerade Letzteres hilft uns später dabei, fortgeschrittenere Handstandpositionen oder -aufgänge zu lernen.

Der Workshop richtet sich sowohl an alle, die noch keine Erfahrungen mitbringen als auch an Menschen mit ersten Vorerfahrungen, die tiefer in das Thema einsteigen möchten. Alle Geschlechter, Körperformen und Alter willkommen!

Partner Acrobatics Workshop:
Icarians & Whip-Pops with Duo Furia

Studio Neukölln
08 June 2024 | 11:00 – 18:30
70€ early bird | 50€ single session | Discount for USC

Join us for a day of dynamic L-basing acrobatics with our Icarian and Whip-Pop workshop with Jordi & Catalina (@duofuria)! This acro duo from Chile comes to Berlin for the first time and will share with us their wealth of knowledge of these spectacular tricks. They are exciting to experience — a throw that completely breaks contact between the flyer and the base for a brief moment — but can also be scary and seem inaccessible. With their technical knowledge and through preliminary exercises and drills, Jordi & Catalina will guide you onto the right path to practice these tricks. In these workshops, we will build on foundational skills to give you the tools necessary for a safe and successful practice, find the right communication, and gain new confidence, courage and trust in your training.
