Victor Medrano

CIRCUS FOR KIDS AND SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

I am Victor Medrano. I finished the course in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences along with the master’s degree to be a Physical Education teacher. Such is my passion for education that this year I have also entered teaching.

Since I was little I started in Trampoline, but the sport that I have practiced the most is Roller Freestyle, that is, acrobatics on skates inside a skatepark. In 2019 I managed to be the champion of Spain in this discipline and I continue to participate in international competitions together with the Spanish team.

I have also completed the title of acroyoga teacher with the Acroyoga Prem association in Valencia.

The practice of this sport together with the studies I have completed have offered me a great transfer to be able to acquire and teach various circus skills.

In this way I have been able to develop myself within different circus modalities such as the following: Acrobatics on airtrack and trampoline, acroyoga, contemporary dance, aerial acrobatics, slackline (balance on a rope) or juggling.

Amaia Uriarte

ACROYOGA & AIR YOGA TEACHER

My name is Amaia. I have always been an active and sportive person. The desire to understand how the world works pushed me to graduate in Physics, as well as the idea of ​​understanding not only the environment that surrounds me, but also my own interior, led me to practice disciplines such as acroyoga or verticals. The union of these two aspects, on the one hand the understanding of the theory of forces and on the other, the development of proprioception, give me the opportunity to understand the roots of acroyoga and have a complete vision of it. I see acroyoga as a tool capable of connecting people through care and respect. I have been practicing acroyoga since 2017 and I have recently course the Acroyoga Teacher Training in Valencia with AcroyogaPrem.

I’ve tried different circus and not-so-circus disciplines: I started practicing aerial acrobatics in 2019 (webs, trapeze and hoop) and I couldn’t put it down, but before that I already practiced slacklining and some stretching and comprehensive mobility. I sign up for many bombardments and I have also received training and intensive verticals, acroyoga, contemporary dance, yoga,… Now I have also encouraged myself with the skates, the point is not to stop.

Goizane Casado

CULTURAL MANAGER

Since I was little I have felt a great attraction for the artistic world. I realized that it was an easy way to communicate, share and transform the society in which we live. I have trained in several schools of dramatic art, such as Mar Navarro, (School of Gestual Theater) At the moment that I began to discover my body and its mode of expression, I delved deeper into body expression and dance.I feel that the body is very wise and that many times we give more importance to the word without stopping to listen to what the body wants to tell us.Theater and creativity for me is like therapy, I can train in different fields as I did with education or with the world of massages, but I realize that in the end I focus everything on care, sharing and generating changes in people and in society.Art transforms and generates actions that are worth seeing.
