Finally, Easter Acro is back!
We'll make it an extra long edition starting Friday afternoon!
Easter Acro is one of the smaller conventions (80 participants max)
where you quite easily get to know everyone present and can enjoy the acro,
as well as the fun times in between workshops and training.
Easter acro is held in a nice and well equiped school building with two gyms.
Since the gyms aren't huge, we opted for a smaller audience.
This means we offer just 3 workshops each round and choose a smaller range of levels for our participants.
Easter Acro welcomes acrobats with a bit of experience already.
If you love standing acro (h2h, f2h and dynamic tricks) this is a convention for you!
Of course you will also have a chance to practice and perfect your icarian games.
Oh, and the food is amazing!

Scott & Michaela
Acro Travel Life
Scott and Michaela teach acrobatics and don’t like talking about themselves, especially in the 3rd person.
However they realise this isn’t particularly useful for someone deciding whether or not to attend one of their workshops…
Also known as Acro Misco, they have been doing acrobatics for over a decade.
Before they began their glorious partnership, Scott spent his free time pretending to be Spider-Man
and Michaela was a cheerleader until she realised that Scott was the only person she wanted to throw her around.
Living in Manchester UK without a regular coach,
the self taught duo have developed a unique style of training,
namely learning all the ways not to do things so that you don’t have to.
They’ve spent the last few years travelling far and wide to learn from the best teachers around to keep developing and learning.
Over the last decade Misco have been building up the acrobatic community in their home town of Manchester
and now they want to spread their acro love around the world.
Ellen & Killian
Ellen & Killian are a fun and hard working hand to hand duo,
with Ell Circo D’ell Fuego in Antwerp as their home base.
They have been training together since 2017 and started teaching a weekly class about a year later.
2 years ago they worked on a group performance and tasted the artist life a bit,
but they feel most comfortable in their teacher roles.
They both have a background in gymnastics,
giving them a wholesome understanding of many important details which often get overlooked.
Ellen has been a teacher for as long as she can remember.
She started teaching gymnastics when she was 16 and worked as a teacher and coach for the past 14 years.
Her creative mind and drive to learn make her classes challenging and fun.
She also built up the existing acro community in Antwerp and loves organising jams, classes and events.
Killian's teaching experience is focused on helping individuals with learning new tricks.
He works in ICT, giving him the ability to analyze details.
He uses this quality in acrobatics by intelligently finding what makes a trick work or fail while teaching and training.
Killian is also a very great logistic support.
Wilko Shütz & Marieke Thijssen
Wilko Schütz was born in Germany and has been an enthousiast about partner acrobatics from a very young age.
Initially he started out as an autodidact with his two brothers which brought him to a children and youth circus where he received intensive training from experienced coaches.
His passion for acrobatics continued and here he laid the foundation for static and dynamic partner acrobatics at a high level.
Next to his own training schedule he became a regular teacher in several circus- classes and camps.
It was only after completing his studies in Mechanical Engineering that he decided to go to a circus school which he completed successfully in 2017 with a hand to hand number.
Since then he is working as an acrobatic trio together with David and Marieke.
Marieke Thijssen as well from The Netherlands started as a 12 year old girl in the youth circus.
After finishing her education in Visual Arts she missed the physical trainings and decided for the professional education as an circus artist.
In her third year she med David and they started working together as a Hand to hand duo.
Graduating in hand to hand in 2016 as a flyer she continued her life as a cast member of a touring theater show based on dance and circus.
One year later she forms an acrobatic trio and continues working in the same field.
