Simple acrobatics is a youth exchange organized by Legaramlat non-profit organization and co-founded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union. The project took place in Mezoebereny, Hungary, between 2-13 July 2021. The young people who participated came from Romania, Hungary, and the Czech Republic.
The main objectives of the project were to increase the juggling competencies of young participants. They also developed other skills like how to use poys and how to solve the Rubik cube.
Beside the hard work, they enjoyed the free time activities in an intercultural environment.
After a few days of practice, the participants organized a street performance in the center of Bekescsaba, during their study visit.
“Erasmuta” logo was created by the participants during a teambuilding activity in order to represent them, everyone agreed with it.

Recognition of results:
* After some time of practicing and concentrating with juggling and Rubik cube, the results were visible.
* Stage fear – getting to know the people around ourselves and our city performance, helped us with the sensation of fear, improve self-confidence, and public speaking.
* Stepping out of our comfort zone, starting to socialize, and talking to each other helped us to make new friends and create memories.
* Seeing people do paragliding looked scary, but after trying adrenaline, we saw that it’s possible to do it and that it’s not that hard.
* Participating in Erasmus+ gave us Youth Pass, which can help young people to find jobs.
* Seeing our facilitators and their amazing work here made us want to be part of the other projects and to get involved in the implementation of youth exchange too.
Erasmus+ is the European Union’s program for educating, training, support, and mobilizing youth across Europe. The 2021-2027 program places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green, and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life.
Simple Acrobatics project is funded under Key Action 1 of the program, which focuses on mobilizing and bring together youth for learning and individual development of the participants. The main goal of the Key Action 1 of the program is to fund opportunities for individuals to enhance their personal skills, increase their knowledge and understanding, develop their personal skills to increase their chances of employment.
Simple Acrobatics project came to life by demand from young people from the partner countries to learn a skill which will also indirectly help them develop other important skills which are teamwork, time management, etc. The project took place in the town of Mezobereny, Hungary starting in early July. A diverse group of participants from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia took part in the project. When the project started the group had never done any kind of street performance or juggling but after 7 days the group had a street performance in the nearby town of Bekescsaba, where the participants had a study trip and were able to explore the town as a group
The project not only allowed the participants to learn juggling but was also able to develop entrepreneurship competence and enhance their understanding of other cultures. By the end, they were very enthusiastic about sharing their skills and experiences upon their return. The project participants saw the project as a huge success and are encouraged to be a part of more projects in the future.
