About the Event
The invitational event brought participants from around the world to Madrid Fly. The training camp was dubbed the Superheroes' Camp. The event was co-organized by the facility and the Hungarian Space Devils Sports Club.
The camp participants, aged between 11 and 16, spent the entire week training with top coaches from the indoor sky dancing industry. The coaches helped the young athletes improve their skills and prepare routines. At the end of the week, the athletes performed an unconventional show that blended bodyflight, music, dance, theater, and visual arts. The 20 minute show was live streamed to viewers around the world. You can watch the entire performance right here:
Laszlo Laki of the Space Devils Sports Club organized the event. His comment on the event:
“Our aim with the camp is to go beyond professional development, and provide the best young contestants of the world with a new perspective: to be able to plan their flight creatively and include elements in their program that they never used previously. We would like to encourage contestants to go beyond their limits, and adopt yet rarely applied branches of art in their performance”
The successful performance comes hot on the heels of Inka Tiitto's performance on America's Got Talent. The beauty of choreography to music has brought massive public awareness to the sport of bodyflight. This is sure to help push the industry forward.

This event continues Space Devils Sports Club's active work to push indoor skydiving events and competition to the mainstream consciousness. The team hopes to continue to pursue these types of events. In addition they lead the several-thousand-member movement to introduce indoor skydiving as a sporting discipline in the Olympic Games.
During the camp, a documentary was to serve the purpose of promoting the sport. The movie will be available on the channels of Space Devils Sports Club, and the organizers also hope to screen them at European film festivals.
