"Op De Kop" (Upside Down) is the acrobatics association in Utrecht founded by 8 acrobats. There are classes weekly. The lessons are taught by experienced acrobatic trainers.
The classes are for everyone aged 16 and over. You do NOT need experience with acrobatics, nor do you need to be strong or flexible. Taking classes will result in strength and flexibility.

Courses January - April 2024

Course presentation

This course we will end with a presentation in a the theater on Thursday April 25th. On Wednesday April 24 we have the general rehearsal for all participating in the presentation

To prepare for the show, we commit the last few classes to make acts in small groups.


In January a new course starts. This would be a good moment to pick up acrobatics again (or continue).

The Wednesday acrobatics class is designed for individuals with a considerable amount of acrobatics experience. We provide a range of L-base and standing tricks and exercises to enhance your acrobatics practice.

  • 18:45 - 19:45 Handstand lesson
  • 20:00 - 21:30 Advanced class
  • 21:30 - 22:30 Open training

Because it is very vague to describe the level required in words, we have filmed some tricks to give an indication of the minimum level you can expect during the class.

If you think these tricks are still too challenging, we advise taking the beginners class on Thursday


In January we start a whole new course. This would be a good moment to start your practise in acrobatics.

We also offer a beginners class, perfect for those who are new to acrobatics. In this class, we focus on foundational techniques and gradually introduce basic tricks and exercises to help you build a strong acrobatics skill set. Whether you're a complete beginner or looking to refresh your acrobatics fundamentals, this class is a great starting point.
