Participation Beyond the classroom, a world to discover

El món casteller


Initiation in castell world

The castells or human tower performances are a popular tradition very rooted in catalan universities. The UAB colla calstellera or human towers group, the Ganàpies, has more than 20 years of experience.
The functioning of a castell, the  basic safety rule and the casteller imaginary are some of the contents you could learn if you participate in this activity, but, above all, you will be part of one of the most rooted student society of our university community.

You will find below the structure of this activity with academic recognition:

1. Two face-to-face sessions with the following content:
a)    Functioning, academic recognition and structure of the activity
b)    Safety and basic knowledge about the working of the human towers
c)    Human tower and human tower groups history

2. Human tower practise: participation in rehearsals, either in the generic ones, on Tuesdays and on Thursdays, and in the extraordinary ones, where concrete techniques are trained or the group gets ready for a performance and participation in almost two performances representing the UAB (you must participate in the performance held in the UAB).
