Dates are set for 2020!
The fourth Hungarian Acrobatic Convention (4th HAC) will be held from august 12th – august 20th 2020, for acrobats and acro yogis of all levels, beginner or (very) advanced.
Arrival: wednesday august 12th 16.00h
Last day: thursday august 20th ( st. Istvan, national holiday). Departure thursday evening or friday morning .
There will be a new big roof to do acrobatics out of rain and sun!
The convention includes:
- Workshops from renowned teachers : Noël, Wybren, Trudy and Hugo
- Training outside, with and without longe
- Training inside in the community house if the weather is bad
- Beautiful camping place on the hill
- Freshly cooked vegetarian food (optionally vegan or carnivore)
- Free use of bicycles
Disciplines and techniques
In the workshops we will address a variety of acrobatic disciplines and techniques including building and pitching, handstands, washing machines, flows and sequences, lifts and balances, Icarian and trio tricks.
This training week is open for anyone. You will receive personal instruction to your skill level. If you like, you can attend with your dedicated training partner, but everybody will switch partners during the training, since this will give you a deeper understanding of acrobatics. Upon registration let me know if you’re preferred role is base or flyer (or both).
Our convention will have (at least) 22 workshops and there is always a free training floor. There will be workshops every day, except for sunday. This day is for other kinds of leisure; a walk in the beautiful environment, a bicycle ride (there are bikes at the venue) up the Bükk mountains, or a visit to the famous Lippizaner horses in Silvasvárad. The ancient town of Eger is also nearby with its fortress and thermal bath.
Accommodation and food
Nestled in a shady cool tree forest, lies the campground. Please bring your own tent, mat and sleeping bag. Sanitary facilities are basic but sufficient (toilets and showers). There will be three vegetarian meals a day, freshly cooked for you. Our kitchenmaster can cook meat/fish or vegan food on request. You are expected to lend a hand in small tasks like cleaning the tables.
