Spazio Bizzarro IN THE AIR is an intensive professional formation in aerial disciplines with high-level instructors.


Next August will take place the first of 3 modules planned before the end of 2021. This event is dedicated to adult artists and acrobats of intermediate/advanced level, in small groups. The purpose is to upgrade the technical level through intensive training: 6/7 hours per day on apparatuses (vertical rope and silks or static trapeze and aerial hoop) from Monday to Saturday.


This formation must be considered as personal training to implement the technique of every participant.


At the end of the week, you will receive a certificate of attendance, that doesn’t qualify you as a professional instructor in aerial disciplines recognised by sports institutions.


To support and help professional collaborations of participants, the organisation will edit short personal reels and send them to associated contemporary circus companies, for example, Sonics, Circo Zoé, eVenti Verticali, Fondazione Cirko Vertigo.


This formation is supported by A.C.C.I. – Italian Contemporary Circus Association (Italian sports promotion association).


You can choose one of the two weeks, according to your speciality.


August 16th – 21st


Aerial Silks and Vertical Rope week




Aerial Silks > Marie Seclet (France) from CNAC – Centre National des Artes du Cirque


Vertical Rope > Roman Fedin (Russia-Belgium) from ESAC – École Supérieure des Arts du Cirque


August 23rd – 27th


Aerial Hoop/Lyra and Static Trapeze week




Aerial Hoop/Lyra > Nathalia Furlan (Brazil) from INAC – Instituto Nacional de Artes do Circo


Trapezio > Alejandro Peña (Chile) from INAC – Instituto Nacional de Artes do Circo


Groups will be very small (10 people max) to guarantee everybody to be followed by instructors properly. To help the right flow of training, homogeneous groups of students will be formed and for this reason, we ask participants to have the following skills.



  • Perform hip lock with straight legs
  • Straddle inversion with straight legs
  • Controlled helicopter/roll down
  • Back balance with straight legs


  • Meat hook on both sides
  • Front balance without hands (with the pelvis on the bottom bar of the hoop)
  • Straddle inversion with straight legs
  • ‘Mosquito’ (coordinate little kip movements with the changing of hand position, inside or outside the leg)


Training will take place from Monday morning to Saturday afternoon, will be very intense and aerial practice will be integrated by warm-up, conditioning and stretching on the floor.


Nicola Bruni, Gianluca Gerlando Gentiluomo and Elisabetta Borrione, the organisational team, will be in charge of collateral activities.


Training spaces will be Il Dedalo, a rigged indoor place in the centre of Casatenovo (a small village near Lecco), and Spazio Bizzarro big top, located right inside Parco Vivo.


These locations are 15 minutes walking distance.
