Notice about 2024 winter workshops

There will be no winter workshops in 2024. Thank you for your understanding.

The winter workshop is offered to people aged 18 years old and over. Participants must have some acquired knowledge in circus arts (or in a high performance sport) on top of acquired knowledge in basic disciplines (acrobatics, handstands, flexibility and physical conditioning) and they are looking to further develop their skills in these fields.

The structure of this workshop is also suitable for those interested in registering for the auditions of the higher education programs (DEC & DEE), as it ends just before the first wave of these.

In addition to improving skills in the basic circus arts disciplines (acrobatics, balancing, flexibility and physical preparation), this workshop will allow participants to choose a specific discipline in which they wish to develop new skills.

Participants will also have the opportunity to discover certain artistic disciplines practiced in groups such as dance and acting.

Our winter workshops are not introductory or train-the-trainer workshops. You must already have a minimum of experience in circus arts or in a high performance sport in order to benefit from them.
