Circus artists nowadays transcend performance to join a renewal of Circus Arts. Educational and artistic objectives of the vocational training centre of Arc en Cirque include training performers and/or circus-makers, who will create circus for today and tomorrow, passing on a profession and an artistic experience, by permanently combining learning and research.
Arc en Cirque works with artists and cultural and artistic partners to promote circus arts' influence in France and Europe.
Candidates should be between 16 and 22 years old and have a Junior High School Certificate (BEPC) or a High School Diploma (BAC) depending on the courses they wish to take.
Candidates should be at least 18 years old and have specifically defined their circus skill related to their creative project.
