Service Description

Welcome to the Acro-Zouk Academy! Our aim is to provide a community for artists to share and express acrobatics and zouk dance together in a way that touches hearts and inspires others. How it works? The Acro-Zouk Academy meets once per month for a weekend retreat in Basel. The academy cycle is divided into two parts: Part 1: Training Workshops (3 months) These workshops are an open space for new artists to join, collaborate and train within the Acro-Zouk community. Session involve warm-up games and connection exercises, various teaching components, a collaborative space for new input, fun and creativity, a stretch and massage session, and general community time for cooking, walking, games, meditation and hanging out together. At the end of 3 months of training there will be auditions for the Acro-Zouk show. Part 2: Performance Workshops (4 months) These workshops are a closed space for the chosen artists to continue. Sessions involve warm-up games and connection exercises, choreography training, staging and performance skills, team meetings, a stretch and massage session, and general community time for cooking, walking, games, meditation and hanging out together. Also during this period there will be a chance for each artist to contribute to the academy through either, design, marketing, show preparation, community building or other media documentation. * SHOW TIME * After the training workshops and performance workshops are complete we will begin travelling and performing our choreography in a variety of settings such as: dance parties, congress events, street festivals, company conferences, flashmobs and any other situation that invites our art form. The amount of shows we do will depend both on the group availability and our skills to promote, organise ourselves. Acro-Zouk Academy Costs There is a CHF45 joining fee to cover our administration costs. After this artists pay a monthly membership fee of CHF100 that gives them access to every academy event such as retreats, workshops, social events and performances.
