The Centre Régional des Arts du Cirque de Lomme-Lille is run by the “Et vous trouvez ça drôle” association, created in 1994 by Christophe Crampette and Pascal Croain. After having developed open circus workshops, they introduced a vocational programme for artists in 2000. There are three courses on offer: an artistic training programme and a preparatory class for graduate school entrance examinations.


The Centre Régional des Arts du Cirque (CRAC) has announced its 2022 selection dates to integrate the artistic training. The auditions will take place on May 19, 20, 21, 2022.

This 3-year training offers artistic and technical education aimed at acquiring skills, know-how and interpersonal skills to exercise the profession of circus artist.
