Are you interested in innovative and artistic ways of moving your body? Movement people from the three different genres; PARKOUR, MOVE and DANCE get a unique chance to live, socialize and do some amazing training in a great community for one week this summer.
The three movement styles have a lot in common and of course many differences. We promise a summer week full of great inspiration for everybody to grow and learn from great coaches and each other.
Because you are worth it!
We have created a course that allows you to be super nerdy within your own preferred field (if you have one), but also to have the opportunity to explore the other fields under expert guidance. – So even the fields where you are a newcomer you will meet coaches that are world class.
The WHEN and WHERE
How does it work?
Practice, laugh, eat, sleep – repeat!
Choose a main focus of the week that you follow in most classes: Parkour, Move or Dance.
Every day you also choose a minimum of one other class, that all three groups can choose from, such as: “Parkour introduction”, “Floorwork for all”, “Aquatics” or “Happy feet – basic intro to Dance”, and much more.
Throughout the week you are invited to inspiring and relevant lectures – both some specifically for your main subject and some for everyone. And last, but not least, you will participate in at wide range of social activities and the best of Danish ‘hygge’: games, performances, open swimming pool + sauna, beachvolley, freesbeegolf and much more.
See here a video from the Parkour International Gathering part of last years course:
What is Gerlev Idrætshøjskole? A.k.a. Gerlev Sports Academy
A højskole is originally a school for enlightenment of the people. The Sports Academy has over the years developed, working with different sports today, than it did in the early days. But still sports, arts and music are tools for personal development and active citizenship.
We have some nice facilities, perfect for dance, parkour and movement in general both indoor and outdoor. It is hard to describe in words – here is a video about a normal day at the school… kind of the same feeling in this week.
Can everybody join?
Yes! The only formal requirement is that you are minimum 18 years old. But it is an active week with training every day, so even though beginners are welcome to join it’s a good thing to be in fairly good shape. If you are able to do basic bodyweight exercises and have an open mind to learning and challenging yourself, you will do fine.
Where do I sleep
Rooms – Depending on what you choose it’s either a single or double room sharing bath+toilet with other rooms.
Dorms – this option is with a bunch of other nice people (men and women separate).
Tents or similar – Bring a tent or hammock and we will find you a spot.
What do I eat?
Included in the prices listed are all meals + snacks for the entire week. If you have special food-requirements, we need to know in the comments on your signup.
Stay tuned here and on facebook to see who is joining as guest-coaches.
