Happy Memories from our STUDENTS
Our extensive expertise will make sure that you have your own Circus Successes!
Strewn with glitter and sweat, friendship and strength, Voler is a welcoming second home. It is a place to test your limits and surpass them, to get strong, flexible and make profound connections with people you might never meet otherwise. I am stronger than I have ever been in every sense of the word and I credit Voler with so much of that. It is so much more than circus, and fitness, I have never laughed more in one geographical location than at Voler!!!
I started at Voler Aerial Academy 3 years ago with a dream to perform. I want to make people forget about life for a little bit. I love Voler because the teachers have educated me so I can fly with confidence. Each time I learn something new and challenging. With the support of my class mates and teachers I know I can do anything.
I always stayed away from the Swiss resorts. Every winter I went to local slopes or the ones in Austria. I never wanted to spend a fortune on skiing. Out of curiosity I turned to Neve Agency and I spent for skiing in Switzerland as much as I did in Austria, although the Swiss alpine décor would have deserved spending much more.
