A 9 day advanced training at Cortijo Caseria Del Mercado: a small organic farm high in the Alpujarras mountains.

Join Partner Acrobatics for 9 days of high level acro training. This intensive will focus on more difficult tricks, geared towards the intermediate/advanced practitioner.  If you want to refine your technique in hand to hand and other standing skills, come dial in your current challenges, learn the tricks you covet, and do it all in a supportive community full of lightness, laughter, and general shenanigans.

No partner necessary, however if you expect to be training with someone of a particular level we recommend you bring that partner.  While we have a basic level of prerequisite but there is always a blend of experience level.

The price of the training include all classes, accommodation, food and a 30 min private in the longe with your partner or another student from the training

A taste of the material we will be training ……

Prerequisites

Prerequisites

We do require require you have some acrobatic skills. We need you to honestly and accurately asses whether the following skills are accessible/of ease to you (while working with someone of similar skill level) as a base OR flyer, at the time of application you must be able to accomplish the skills without a spotter helping (they can be there for safety).

On your application you will be asked to rate your comfort level in the following…. while they are not prerequisites, the more experience you come with the more you will gain out of the training!

You will also be asked to send us a 1-2 minute video showing you in an acrobatic flow of your choice.

The video should represent where you are at skill-wise, however, it doesn’t need to be all of the craziest things you can do—think elements from the preqs! The video also doesn’t need to be of high production quality, a quick one on your cell phone is fine.
