WHAT IS CONVERGENCE?
Convergence Acro Festival is a celebration of acrobatic movement: Partner Acrobatics, AcroYoga, Cheerleading, Handbalancing, Tumbling, & more! Featuring teachers from over 14 cities across the south-eastern Great Lakes area and beyond, it is an opportunity for different movement communities to converge, connect, and discover what’s possible through the sharing of skills & smiles.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
No Partner Required: Part of the magic of Acro is that we train it as a community. Groups will consist of 3 or more to ensure a base, flyer, and spotter. Groups often change throughout a workshop session so you’ll make many new friends to climb on.

Children: Although the Acro scene is mostly populated by adults, children are welcome at this event provided anyone under the age of 16 is accompanied by a supervising adult.

Parking: There is lots of parking at the gym. Please consider carpooling, public transportation, or human-powered means of arrival.

Food: The gym is a 15-20 minute walk to several food options including restaurants and grocery stores.We are working on getting a food truck this year

Accommodation: Crash with a local, stay in an Airbnb, grab a hotel.

What should I bring?: 1. Anyone else you think might enjoy this event! (No partner required) 2. Comfortable clothes for movement, ideally not loose/baggy. 3. A water bottle. 4. You do NOT need to bring a yoga mat.
