These Summer Workshops are 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.

Here is a preview of how each workshop is scheduled (per week):

  • 7,5 hours in your main discipline
  • 3 hours of acrobatics
  • 2 hours of handstands
  • 2 hours of trampoline
  • Physical conditioning (ex : flexibility, weight training, Pilates, yoga, etc.)
  • Various complementary workshops (ex. dance, theatrical acting, mime, flying trapeze, etc.)


  • Experience in circus arts*
  • Good physical shape & stamina

*Our workshops are not for beginners and they are not instructors’ trainings. Candidates must already have some acquired skills in circus arts or in a high performance sport in order to take full advantage of these workshops.
