Spain Intensive

June 8 - June 21

Program

Program

Optional one or two week long training in Partner Acrobatics.

PartnerAcrobatics.com Intensives are unique because our students get to create their own personal acro adventure.

Simultaneous classes are offered daily, each with varying levels of acrobatic competency; all classes are geared towards having students increase their own abilities. Higher level offerings will have separate pre-requisites that will need to be met in order to participate in the class. This encourages students to be able to work with other participants in the course who are working on similar skill sets.

In our Partner Acrobatics programs we cover many different acrobatic disciplines: standing acrobatics, handstand training, washing machines, trio tricks, Icarian games, to name a few.
This physical intensity is balanced out with our prehab program and therapeutic sessions, which aim to heal and restore the body.
This program will give you the chance to refine your Acro skills and to have loads of fun.

Location

Location

Cortijo Caseria Del Mercado is a small organic farm high in the Alpujarras mountains of Andalucia, southern Spain.

In addition to the huge array of fruit and vegetables grown on site the farm has goats, horses and a peacock breeding sanctuary and the farm produces its own organic olive oil.

Not only is the cortijo a working farm it has been adapted as a retreat centre with traditional Spanish accommodation, a natural mineral water swimming pool and a yoga shala.

The local area is fantastic hiking country with spectacular mountain views and isolated “White villages” (paint).

More info on the venue can be found here.

Accommodation

The accommodation is included as part of the course price.

The venues farm buildings offer various basic but comfortable accommodations with a communal and family feel .

Shared accommodation is included in the course fee, numbers permitting. For an additional fee single accommodation may be available, please contact us for availability.

Food

3 mostly vegetarian meals daily are included in the training fee. Organic and local when possible.

There is a large communal kitchen and 3 smaller kitchens where students can prepare their own snacks etc. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are available from the farm and they are amazing!

How to get there

The closest airport Granada is about 1.5 hours away from our venue.

Malaga is 2 hours but has limited bus connection to Orgiva. Check www.alsa.es timetable.

There are several cheap flights daily from Madrid and Barcelona to Granada.

Recommendations

We do recommend that you invest in a good travel insurance then if the unexpected happens you will be well looked after financially.

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!

L-BASING (base lying down):

STANDING:

Send us a video showing a 1-2 minute 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.
