An intensive that gives you much more than just dance or acrobatics!

Circus Dance Lab is a week-long program designed for pre-professional and professional dancers and circus artists who want to explore new tools for their movement research and redirect their careers.

Where: Belmonte Calabro, CS, Italy

When: 15th – 22nd July 2022

Deadline for applications: 30th June 2022

We are a collective of artists from contemporary dance and circus backgrounds who understand You and your needs! 
We combine our knowledge and experience and guide you to discover and reach your full potential!

It is a fact that dancers are required more and more to prove acrobatic skills during auditions. The same goes for acrobats who are requested to show more smoothness in their acro flow.
For this reason, the CDL program makes sure that students take classes that cover an entire spectrum of artistic approaches.

The first five days focus on refining techniques. Classes include floorwork, handstands, acrobatics, contemporary dance, partner acrobatics, and contemporary partnering. 

The last two days will be dedicated to composition and improvisation, during which we will consolidate all the techniques learned.

The program also includes Thai Bodywork classes to nourish the body and mind and prevent injuries.

Exposing yourself to an interdisciplinary education is the best way to improve your performance and increase your chances of getting a job. 
At the same time, for personal growth, knowing how to cultivate a new skill actively is a skill in itself! 
It offers perspective, strength, and new experiences!

Would you like to train with professionals to challenge your performance in a safe environment?
Along with a like-minded and supportive community, stunning nature, and delicious Italian food?
