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.
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.
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
Rooms Depending on what you choose it’s either a single or double room sharing bath and 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
At Gerlev you eat well. Healthy, inspiring and with all the senses. The kitchen is a priority, and the food you are served is not only healthy, but suits an active lifestyle and can be eaten with the eyes.
Included in the prices listed are all meals and snacks for the entire week. If you have special food-requirements, please let us know in the comments on your signup.
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.
