                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more With these two beauties we go way back to the begginings of our carriers. Amazing friends and teachers!! We're very happy to have them back.
Alfonso has such a encouraging energy. You cannot stop him doing acro!
Celine, well... if her smilie doesn't captivate you, just wait to see her fly Icarians and whips. Jaw dropping.
They will be sharing their whips and Icarian moves in this Winter Festival 2019.

Trudi & Wybren

Wybrem and Trudi
                                            in the Winter Acro Fest 2019 - Skining Codarts and more I'll be honest, first encounter was a bit intimidating. But then you go full FKK at some random acro conventions and you realise we're all in the same rail here (sort of).
It's endless what you could learn from this couple of amazing acrobats!
Wybren is teacher at the Codarts Circus School in Rotterdam and with Trudi they have given many of our favourite technical workshops. Very happy to have them on board!

                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more We where on our way to give a workshop in Copenhagen and while stalking the local teachers we came across some pretty nice flows. Later that day we finally met the authors: Peter and Julie. So lovely and beautiful people!! and what a multi poli hiper mover Peter is. Very happy he accepted our invitation!

Fer & Fifi

Acrowings
                                            in the Winter Acro Fest 2019 for the Second time teaching
                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more We met this duo just recently at the 7th Barcelona Mano a Mano Convention and liked their way of teaching so much that we had to invite them.
Experts in acrobatics and many other Circus arts, they are going to share a piece of their knowledge with us! Thanks for accepting our invitation and happy to see you soon !

Paul

                                            in the Winter Acro Fest 2019 for the Second time teaching
                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more First time I read about Paul, they discribed him as the swiss knife of acrobatics. Soon enough we learned to know why: basing, flying and is basiclly a encyclopedia of creative tricks. He's coming to share hes many curious tricks and humor for the first time in the Swiss alps.

Daniel Marty

Acrowings
                                            in the Winter Acro Fest 2019 for the Second time teaching
                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more For being "just his hobby" Daniel has investes A LOT of time in acro, and another bunch in developing the Basel and Swiss acro community. Mostly traveling arround from one big event to another, he hardly misses the local events. Very happy to have him sharing all that collected knowleadge at the Winter Acro Festival this 2019!

Ben and Elli - Analogue Acrobatics

Acrowings
                                            in the Winter Acro Fest 2019 for the Second time teaching
                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more We met Ben at the post Dutch acro convention. After he noticed all or technicals mistakes we developed a bit of a training plan with him. What a difference when you talk with profesionals. Ben and Elli are Circus school graduates with many more talents than just acrobatics. I hope you can see one of their shows too, highly recommended. Very happy to see them again this Winter!

Bruno

Acrowings
                                            in the Winter Acro Fest 2019 for the Second time teaching
                                            Acrobatics Icarians and more I had to laugh only from remembering Bruno at the French acro convention, what a blast you'll have with this guy! Improvisation and staging are he's strengths and passion. But it's hard to find the words to describe such a clown, you just have to meet him. Happy to have you with us my friend!
