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.

In our Facebook event you can learn more about the four different movement styles and the teachers who will be joining.

International Gathering

Practice, laugh, eat, sleep - repeat!

Choose a main focus of the week that you follow in most classes: Parkour, Move Dance or Beachvolley. Every day you also choose a minimum of one other class, that all four groups can choose from, such as: “Parkour introduction”, “Floorwork for all”, “Aquatics” or “Happy feet – basic intro to Dance”, and much more.

During the week

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 a wide range of social activities and the best of Danish ‘hygge’: games, performances, open swimming pool, sauna, beachvolley for all, freesbeegolf and much more.

International Gathering

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.

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.

Meet the teachers:

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.

Nikolaj Nilsson

Nikolaj elsker at eksperimentere med og fordybe sig i idræt og bevægelse. Glæden ved at udforske, reflektere og dygtiggøre sig i et trygt fællesskab er helt central i hans undervisning.

Moritz Krauff

Moritz drives af at videregive den glæde ved bevægelse, idræt og fællesskab, han selv har været en del af som tidligere elev på Gerlev. Højskole er et sted med utrolig mange kvaliteter, som Moritz mener, mange vil have gavn af. I hans undervisning vægter han en legende tilgang og en stærk fælleskabsfølelse højt.

Anna Eileen Nguyen Jeppesen / Groovy

Groovy is a dancer and artist from Denmark. She loves and lives for dance and everything in relation to that. Her main styles of practice is Breaking and House Dance.
Known for her enormous energy, fast footwork, a characteristic funky style and groovyness, which has also given her the stage name Groovy. Her father is a well-known drummer and this has contributed to her incredible musicality. Music and Dance have always been a part of her life and a way for her to express and feel free. She’s a key person in the Danish Hiphop scene, as a dancer, organiser, battlehead and community enthusiast.
She likes to make her teaching available for everybody in the class and focuses a lot on grooves and concepts to further develop once own style and approach to dance.  At IG she’s also been in charge, together with her husband Slowz, for the spirited “IG Street Jam.

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.
