Brazil Circus Holiday 2018
For the past 2 years, Circocan International School of Circus and Aerial Edge have teamed up to offer circus students and professionals from across the UK and Europe to come to Brazil for 3 weeks intensive circus training on the beautiful Brazilian island of Florianópolis, where we will return for our next adventure in February 2018.
About the School: Based in Jurerê Internaçional, Circocan is one of Brazil’s top circus training centres. Boasting a team of highly trained, friendly, and professional coaches (including several ex- olympic gymnasts) the school attracts visitors from all over the world.
Circocan has a variety of programmes: from their youth and adult recreational classes to their 6 month full-time intensive: ‘Gforce’ for aspiring circus professionals.
At the heart of Circocan’s approach to teaching is a strong focus on acrobatic awareness, conditioning, fitness and flexibility training. New students who enter Circocan’s recreational programme are required to complete 3 months of Circus Fitness classes before moving on to static aerial disciplines. Previous Brazil Circus Holiday participants have been impressed by how quickly they have progressed in all areas of their practice due to the interdisciplinary nature of Circocan’s teaching style.
The classes are taught in a mixture of Portuguese and English, but the staff are also known to speak French, Russian and occasionally Chinese!
