The Pre-convention 2019 is sold out, but there is a waitlist!!

And we proudly present you our add on: the intensive Weekend “Icarian Games” June 1&2th (6 hours per day)

The Pre-Convention is a 5 day festival leading up to the DUTCH ACROBATICS FESTIVAL. Come to the Netherlands and train an extra amount of hours with exclusive acrobatic teachers in a circus environment. The festival provides delicious vegetarian food, camping right next to the circus top, sauna and of course loads of arco. The teacher line up changes every year and always includes traditional dutch acrobatics in addition to circus style acrobatics with experienced teachers from all over the world.

Niko Douwes (NL) founded the Pre- Convention in 2011. In 2013 Monika Kolb (GER) came to the festival and met Niko for the first time. They joined forces and their intention is it to create a festival with teachers from all over the world dedicated to acrobatics and movement. Especially for this festival they turn a field into a training space, set up a circus tent, a kitchen tent and invest a lot of time and love to make this circus dream happen.
