partner acrobatics teacher training spain 2023

Program

Program

Our Partner Acrobatics teacher training program offers an opportunity to intensively train for four weeks, whilst learning the skills and tools to teach successful acro classes and workshops. We encourage and support our students in developing their own teaching style, based on the latest principals of neuroscience and motor learning and our own extensive teaching experience.

Moreover plenty of time will be dedicated to improve your personal acrobatic practice. Some time will be dedicated to prepare public performances and work on the aesthetics of your acro moves.

In our Partner Acrobatics teacher training 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.

If you are unable to join for the full 4 weeks, we offer the opportunity to join for the first 2 weeks this year, and the last 2 weeks next year. Contact us for more information and requirements.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites

To get most out of your acrobatics teacher training and to maintain a similar level for the group, we require you have some acrobatic skills. We need you to honestly and accurately self-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!

Send us 1 video

  • 1-2 minute acrobatic sequence 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—basic and clean! The video also doesn’t need to be of high production quality, a quick one on your cell phone is fine:)

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 cats, dogs, chicken 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, a yoga shala and both an outdoor and indoor training space. Therefore the cortijo is the ideal venue for our Partner Acrobatics Teacher Training!

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 organic (and local when possible) meals daily are included in the training fee. The food is mostly vegetarian and we provide a ‘meat option’ every few days. We cater for vegan, gluten free and various intolerances, which you can include in your application.

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!
