Brought to you by internationally acclaimed performers of Cirque du Soleil, Franco Dragone, and Notre Dame de Paris!
The unique programme will introduce kids to a range of movement combinations from acrobatics to contemporary dance. Working with different speeds, rhythm, levels, and directions allowing children to work in their own comfort zone.
Their workshops have been held in dance schools, circus schools and gymnastics centres in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Ghent, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Verona, Venice, Grosseto, Mexico City, Guadalajara, Oaxaca and more.
Over 5 days the programme will run through:
From World-class rhythmic gymnast for the Italian National Team to top-level dancer for the largest business companies around the world, Beatrice dedicated all her life to the study and research of the arts of movement and their nuances. She has worked worldwide for television and theatres, including a live event with Artists like Anastacia, Liza Minelli, Andrea Bocelli and more.
Beatrice eventually reached the peak of her career by joining Cirque du Soleil for the first cruise ship live show tour ever created by the Canadian company in 2017, starting as a dancer and ending as Artistic Director.
Alberto found his calling when he was 12, the day he first admired the acrobats of the Guinness Record Winner musical show "NotreDame de Paris". Many years of solo training will pass, but after creating his own live show company - Team Vertical Limit, and performing while training with inspiring performers around the world, Alberto developed his own style by mixing floor acrobatics with tricking, freerun, and stunts.
He eventually joined "Fondazione Arena di Verona" for the international performances of the opera "turandot" and finally achieved his childhood dream joining the international show "Notre Dame de Paris" as an acrobat in 2016 till the present day.
This workshop is open to all abilities -
from absolute beginners to advanced performers. Boys and girls.

2. Floor Acrobatics Techniques and Dance Movement Research
A unique combination of dance and acrobatics encouraging students to mix them in a way that the audience will be able to tell the difference between the two disciplines. Flips, tricks freezes - taught to anybody's level with a profound focus on take-offs and landings in order to make them look as smooth as possible and a part of the dance. The creative group "games" aim to dig deep into everybody's creative interaction between body and space.
3. Acro Modern Choreography
The core of the workshop is to take all the different concepts explored and put them together into practice. The group works on one of their own Acro Modern choreographies that each student can adapt to his or her level.
