Get moving

The four 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.

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.

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, beachvolley and movement in general both indoor and outdoor.

Who can join

The only formal requirement is that you are at least 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

Meet the teachers:

Martin Kallesøe

For Martin har fysisk aktivitet altid været det foretrukne felt for selvudvikling. Det har også skabt en interesse for de spændende relationer, der opstår i det fysiske møde, når vi træner og leger med andre. I undervisningen lægger Martin stor fokus på at inkludere alle og udvikle eleverne på deres eget niveau.

Louise Seloy Klok

Louise ser bevægelse som en fantastisk måde at udtrykke sig på. Helt uden ord kan dans føre os igennem stemninger og følelser og få os ned og mærke kroppen. Man kan næsten kun gå gladere ud i verden, efter man har danset.
