- A world of dance: MTV, dance battles, street culture, ballet and modern dance. These are the the sources of inspiration in this workshop. The participants will experience the convergence of different motion expressions, feel the energy of group dancing and be challenged by the rhythms and techniques.
- Urban movements: Participants will discover and develop their own movement style navigating urban obstacles. They will experience a new sense of freedom using creativity, precision, running, climbing, jumping and rolling! They will learn tricking movements and how to create an aesthetic blend of flips, kicks, and twists. Urban movements are appropriate for all levels of fitness and begin with basic strength conditioning, coordination and safety.
- Tumbling and mini trampoline: It's fun to romp around and challenge your body on the equipment. Dexterity, coordination and courage are put to the test when working with elements of tumbling on the mats. Various basic elements put together to vaulting that gives speed and excitement. We work with the same "building blocks" which the gymnasts use in their training and in the show. It tickles when you jump into the trampoline. Trampoline as gymnastics equipment provides plenty of opportunities for training of gymnastic and acrobatic skills.
Mini trampoline is fun equipment that is popular to try. Participants experience what it takes to "fly" as the team’s talented gymnasts.
- Acrobatics: Agility, balance, cooperation, coordination and confidence are essential skills when working with acrobatics. - And it's fun too. Skills reflected in gymnastics, and necessary in our everyday lives. Everyone will be challenged by the body's possibilities, and in cooperation with others, we create pyramids and compositions.
- Rhythmic Challenges: Rhythmic challenges focuses on body control, basic rhythmic elements and compositions. It is a workshop full of energy, expressive and exciting combinations. In this workshop we work with elements from the team's show, apparatus, etc.
