L'ÉCOLE DE CIRQUE DE QUÉBEC
Founded in 1995, the École de cirque de Québec (ÉCQ) first lived in the gymnasium of the Louis-Joliet center, then the ExpoCité youth pavilion, to finally own and refurbish the old Saint-Jean church. Esprit located in the heart of the Vieux-Limoilou district in 2003. In keeping with its reputation as a driving force in the development of circus arts in Quebec, the ÉCQ undertook a second phase of development in 2010 to respond to the development of its sector. Respect for its architectural heritage combined with modern rental improvements make it without a doubt an exceptional place. It is the only public professional circus school in Canada, and also offers a recreational component.
The ÉCQ is a non-profit organization with values that preaches respect, openness and rigor.
