Bosnia Acro Convention
August 25, 2018 @ 17:00 - September 2, 2018 @ 11:00
Save the date!
Our teachers : Paul Griffioen, who already came to Krupa in 2013 and 2015 with the well known Jos Derks and Noel Spauwen, who already came in 2011 and 2012 🙂
and the Acrology duo from Spain will also bring some acroyoga vibes 🙂
The arrangement will be similar to the previous editions.. so, if you’ve been here already and if you liked it, please join us again !!!
The whole idea of the festival is of course to enjoy all in the sun by the river, but also to bring some circus to Bosnia Herzegovina, so we have a special price for ex-yu participants – check it out!
The Bosnian Convention is a relatively small an intimate event and you are welcome to help shape it the way you like it to be! Please propose your own workshop/activity – Eg. if you juggle, practise tissue, slackline, yoga, or if anything else you’d like to share, go ahead!
Saturday the 25th is the arrival day and there won’t be any planned workshop that day. you can arrive at any time, relax and put your tent. There will be an open dinner in the late afternoon.
The actual workshops will begin on sunday around 11h and during the whole week everyday there will be between 4 and 6 workshops (of 1h30, 2h or 3h each) – a session in the morning, and one in the afternoon with a lunch break and time for swimming, rest and other skills practise.
Workshops will have an organised warming up. Particpation is always at your own responsibility. If a workshop is clearly above your level, you should either tell the workshop leader, or stop participating.
Depending on the weather, the afternoon break will be longer or shorter: When its very warm we’ll start earlier, have a long ‘Spanish’ break, and train again in the late afternoon. If the temperature is more moderate we’ll start a little later in the morning, shorten the lunch break and have a longer break in the evening.
Depending on the weather and the workshops offered, the daily timetable can look like this:
- 8H00 Breakfast
- 9H00 Handstands – Warming up
- 10H00 Two workshops (beginners / intermediary-advanced)
- 12H00 free floor
- 13h00 Lunch break
- 16h00 Two workshops: (beginners-intermediary / advanced)
- 18h00 Free floor
- 19H30 Dinner
During the week there will be around 25 different workshops. We aim to have two parallel workshops so participants can choose which one they want to attend.
The level of the workshops will be adapted to the level of the participants. If there is a large variety in level (less /more experienced), there will be workshops for different levels. Some workshops will be suitable for everyone.
You don’t need to bring a partner to the convention, but if you have one, take him or her along!
If you want to practise some aerial it is possible to hang your trapeze, ring or tissue in the trees around, or in the school nearby for indoors trainings.
In the evening we offer some activities such as a night walk, a campfire, a movie screening in the open, etc. And you’re very welcome to bring your music instruments, juggling gear, slacklines etc..
The previous years (2010-2015) we used to organise a show on the last day in Banjaluka, as acrobatics and circus in general is definitely not really common in Bosnia Herzegovina. This is an idea to discuss, as it brings a very nice and creative energy to the whole festival. Of course, maybe not all the participants want to take part in the show. Keep the idea in mind and let’s see how we feel in August!!
Your holidays in Bosnia?
We know that Bosnia Herzegovina is a bit off the main road, but actually, besides its recent turbulent history, it has a lot of splendid nature to offer. As you might be coming from far to Krupa na Vrbasu for “just” a week of acro, we invite you to consider to spend some more time in the country under professional guidance for climbing, hiking, rafting etc..Just ask us, we’ll be glad to give you some tips or to organise you an exciting trip
