Acrobatics courses

Contemporary circus for all!

Cirk La Putyka Studio is an educational project of our company in which we organise sporting and leisure activities for children and youth, coaching and artistic development of young acrobats, senior circus with Elpida and, last but not least, regular education of instructors.

 

Courses for the public

Acrobatics courses for the public are held regularly once a week in the Jatka78 training hall. The programme is divided into several classes according to the age of participants (3-5, 5-8, 9-12, 13+), and the last lesson is open space, where there is space for everyone, and there is an assumption of a certain specialisation and at least a slightly advanced level in the specific discipline. The courses are held from September to June and are divided into two terms, winter and summer. The lessons are taught by experienced tutors, more than half of whom perform actively in productions of the company.

Open space

This course is specific. Virtually anyone who wants to come and practice can attend it. They can use all the apparatus that the training hall offers. The course is attended by more advanced people for conditioning training and development of skills for the given discipline, but also beginners with a clearly chosen direction. Tutors do not run this course, they are only in the hall for supervision and consultation. It is therefore more suitable for more independent individuals. It is possible to attend the course regularly or on a one-off basis.
