Programs

The School provides a complete spectrum of professional programs in circus arts :

It also prepares professional circus arts educators. Recreational activities and other discovery activities (summer camp, workshops, etc) are also offered.

Educational approach

Since circus artists today are called upon to be both creators and performers, creativity and artistic exploration must form the core of their education. For this reason instruction is based on a multidisciplinary approach to the circus arts, integrating other performing arts such as dance, acting and music. A low student / teacher ratio ensures that each student receives personalized attention and encouragement throughout their training.

"The School has evolved into the Harvard of circus training in North America" (Boston Globes, USA)

"Over the past few decades, Montreal has become a formidable beacon for the circus and a career springboard thanks to the National Circus School founded in 1981 and now one of the best in the world" (Telerama, France).
