A completely new workshop on the fusion between modern-contemporary dance and floor acrobatics, is an international project committed to sharing our experience and passion for movement through our one-of-a-kind workshops.
The ultimate goal of this laboratory is showing performers how to use their bodies and skills in a completely different way, as well as deepening movement awareness and enriching personal potential, thanks to a very specific and innovative approach to modern-contemporary dance and floor acrobatics.

Moreover, advanced dancers will have the chance to open their minds to the new frontier of the current dance scenario, constantly craving for more and more multitalented performers.
No matter what your background is, we are going to make you work to your maximum possibilities, from warm-up to cool down. The way we show how to mix these two disciplines is utterly different from the standard “acrobatic dance”, where gymnastics movements find their spot into a choreography: we treat each acrobatic movement, from basic to advanced, as a dance step with the idea that the audience must not be able to tell the difference between the two things.
Specific moments of the workshop will focus on developing mutual exchange and exploration of the personal emotional baggage thanks to creative group activities from our own wealth of knowledge acquired from working with some of the largest show business companies of the world like Cirque du Soleil, Franco Dragone, “Notre Dame de Paris“.

TEACHERS INFO
Beatrice Zancanaro (Italy), from world-class rhythmic gymnast for the Italian national team to top level dancer for Cirque du Soleil (Franco Dragone, Luc Petit, Notre Dame de Paris). She dedicated her life to the study and research of the arts of movement and their nuances. She has worked world-wide for televisions and theatres, including live events with artists like Anastacia, Liza Minelli, Andrea Bocelli and much more. In 2017 Beatrice joined Cirque du Soleil for the first cruise ship live show tour ever created by the Canadian company, starting as a dancer and progressed to artistic leader.

Alberto Poli (Italy) found his calling at the age of 12, the day he first admired the acrobats of the musical “Notre dame de Paris”. Many years of solo training passed, and after creating his own company Team Vertical Limit, in which he created ánd performed with international inspiring performers around the world, Alberto developed his own movement style by mixing floor acrobatics with tricking, freerun and stunts. He eventually joined “Fondazione Arena di Verona” for the international performances of he opera: Turandot”, and finally achieved his childhood dream joining the international show “Notre dame de Paris” as acrobat in 2016 till today.
