Acrobatics EJCBasics: A series of workshops throughout the week covering the basic principles of Partner Acrobatics. This series will be a good choice for beginners, who want to boost their Acrobatics skills will a full-week workshop series geared towards people without gymnastic/acrobatics experience.

Advanced: A series of workshops covering exercises and positions that are too difficult for true beginners because they require already a certain level of strength, balance, body-tension and experience. This series will be a good choice for participants who have acrobatics experience already.

Handstand: exercises and training methods to learn a proper Handstand. Daily practice with instructions for interested people to build body tension, strength and balance required for handstands.

Free training: Every night there will be “free training” with (different) instructors for interested people. There will be a “position of the day” announced during the training for people following the instructor-led session. Others can also practice their own positions in parallel.

Special Workshops: A selection of special workshops with a variety of different topics depending on the skills and proposed topics from different workshop leads. Examples: 1) “Washing Machines” (with L-Base, ending in the same position as the start with a full rotation of positions in between start and end), 2) AcroYoga exercises, usually with L-Base, 3) Hand-to-hand positions (handstand of flyer on base), 4) Pyramids with many people, 5) 3-person positions, 5) Dynamic acrobatics (transition between positions that require a momentum / movement)
