Our Circus Arts Preparatory Program is aimed at young people aged 9 to 17 who wish to develop their potential and their physical abilities to eventually adhere to our Circus and High School Studies program or our Higher Education program.

Offered in French, this training consists of extracurricular courses focused on physical preparation and learning different circus disciplines.

Although classes begin in September, we accept new applications at any time. An individual with the  required skills can therefore join the program at any time during the school year.
