Handstand / Acro contact


I am offering recreational gymnastics classes for students of all ages and levels in a fun, yet structured, environment, with a combination of handstand and acro contact training.

My goal  will be to help build your confidence, strength, co-ordination and flexibility. Through learning gymnastics techniques like cartwheels, back handsprings, tucks, layouts or full twists you will build a strong foundation by solidifying proper positions and basic skills, perfecting overall technique.

Group classes available for everyone from age 10 and up. Private classes available for all ages.

Marco was born in Santiago Chile. At the tender age of six, his brother, Orlando Vargas, introduced him to the wonderful, magical world of circus performance and ever since then his love and passion for the art of the circus has continued to grow.

At eight years old he appeared in his first circus show. By thirteen Marco enrolled at the Circo Del Mundo, the renowned circus school and project of Cirque du Soleil in Santiago, Chile. Marco spent 5 years specializing in acrobatics and Chinese pole; as well as taking lessons in dance, theatre and trapeze from different teachers around the world.

2009 marks his circus journey to South Africa, where he began training on a full-time program with Art of Synergy in circus and performance.

Private training sessions

Private training sessions are the quickest and most effective way to learn.
Private lessons are an individual training option for people who prefer to work one-on-one or two-on-one. They can be taken as an enhancement to group lessons, or as a standalone training program. Private training sessions can be a great tool for brushing up on weak areas or to delve into areas of personal interest.

Private lesson topics can be anything of interest to the student. Lessons can progress at the student’s own pace.

7 benefits of private acrobatic instruction:

  1. Develop the fine details of your technique under the watchful eye of a professional private trainer.
  2. Improve your ability to execute more power in your techniques.
  3. In-depth explanations to gain a greater understanding of the concepts and principles of Systema.
  4. Accelerate the quality and progress of your training.
  5. Reach levels of proficiency and excellence that take far longer to achieve through group training alone.
  6. Fine-tune your personal areas of need.
  7. Enhance any group training that you are already receiving.
