GO BIG OR GO HOME! After the overwhelmingly positive response we had to our first convention in April, we decided to go massive this time.
We’re hiring out Bowlers Exhibition Centre for the whole weekend so we can host more workshops, more teachers and of course more amazing students!! We anticipate being able to host 200 students this time, quadrupling our capacity from 2016. The space has a few thousand square feet so we’ll be able to host an amazing six classes at once, giving you more choice and more variety.
The venue has an amazing 8m of height so we’ll be able to rig all the usual silks, trapezes, ropes and hoops as well as new aerial equipment such as cloud swings, aerial nets and maybe something bungee related!
With the additional floor space we’re also looking at running cyr wheel workshops as well as your favourite floor workshops from last time, including hula hoop, stilt walking and of course acro acro acro!
The level of teachers last year was amazing, the calibre of students was incredible and the atmosphere was indescribable. So let’s do it all again!!
Obviously this is a good few months away so at this stage we’re in early planning and we’ll release details of workshops and teachers as we get them.
