Instructor in Circus Arts (NRC.08)
The goal of this program is to educate circus arts instructors. These instructors will be qualified to provide an initiation to various circus disciplines in the context of recreational activity. These instructors may also serve as educators in the social services arena, introducing young people at risk to the circus arts.
Circus arts instructors are able to find employment in many areas. These include: schools devoted to circus arts as recreational activity, municipal recreational facilities, day or vacation camps, or resorts that offer leisure activities. Instructors may also be called upon to animate after-school programs in educational facilities. Community and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), which may also incorporate these arts as a form of social education, have occasion to call upon the services of circus arts instructors.
Upon graduating from the School, instructors may further their professional development by enrolling in the Trainer in Circus Arts program (AEC-NCR.09), receiving credit for the first 5 courses.
This training is also available in French.
The program requires 360 hours (270 course hours and 90 in work internship), which are offered full-time over two semesters.
