Israel Acrobatic Convention

Israel Acro Convention
May 7 to 10, 2020
The place we have all come to love - Me'ever, Mitzpe Ramon - is hosting us again this year. They have been working hard to make all kinds of improvements!

The beautiful desert surroundings will make a very special atmosphere as always. 

This is the 10th year we are having this event and it will be super special with all kinds of surprises.

A dream-team of world-class teachers from around the globe are coming together in order to share their expertise with you.

We will have a wide variety of workshops for ALL levels.

From absolute beginners up to professional level acrobats, you can find the classes that are right for you. There will also be music and dancing, exciting performances, excellent food and wonderful company! 

כנס אקרו ישראל ה-10
מאי 7-10, 2020
 

This year we have one other acro event taking place before the convention:

Acro retreat is Sinai (May 1-6)
The bus will leave from Tel-Aviv on May 1 and take you to one of the most beautiful places in the world - Sinai. We will cross the border into Egypt and stay on a lovely beach along the famous Red Sea. There you can do lots of acro, snorkel among the beautiful corals, take a day trip into the mountains and just a bit of relax in the sun. 

Already we have 14 amazing acro teachers who are coming to this retreat. There will be 2 daily classes and lots of time to practice and have acro-fun on the beach. Precise schedule will be posted closer to the event. 

On May 6 around noon we will start heading back to Eilat, where a bus will take us to the location of the convention (Mitzpe Ramon). 

הכנס הוא מקום נפלא להכיר את עולם האקרו! 

רבים מהתלמידים שהיום נחשבים "מתקדמים" החלו את דרכם בכנסים בשנים עברו, ואנו מזמינים אתכם לנסות גם. לכל אורך הכנס יהיו שיעורים רבים המתאימים במיוחד למתחילים והרבה חברים נחמדים לתרגל איתם ולשחק יחדיו. המורים שלנו שמחים ללמד את יסודות האקרו ושיבצנו גם את "התותחים" מחו"ל ללמד שיעורי מתחילים - בואו ללמוד מהמאסטרים!

The convention is a great place to start your acro experience!

Many of the advanced students started their journey at previous conventions, and we encourage you to try it too. There will be classes for absolute beginners throughout the day, and many friendly people to play and practice with. Our teachers are very happy to teach the fundamentals of acro!

We highly recommend you register early, as places are limited and we do expect to be sold out.

So, what do people do at the convention?

- Participate in workshops (designed for ALL levels) such as: Acrobalance, acro-Yoga, yoga, Thai massage, movement, dance, gymnastics, handstands and more!

- Watch dance and circus performances

- Go on hikes and explore the desert

The schedule is arranged so that each person can participate at their own pace and challenge themselves accordingly. Although many people say they barely find time to eat, you are welcome to relax and just enjoy the vibe!

All of the workshops are run in English or have a translator on hand (most Israelis speak English).
