Ecole de Cirque Lausanne Renens

Full member

ECL is a circus arts training center. In addition to the numerous leisure courses offered for young and old, the ECL has the will to prepare young artists for the entrance exams to professional schools all over the world in an intensive way during 1 year.

Divided into two main streams, the junior training and the pre-professional training, the center is open to all acrobatic athletes and not only to circus artists. As circus covers multiple disciplines, young people who have practiced gymnastics, acrobatic dance, synchronized swimming, parkour, freestyle soccer, and many other physical activities are welcome.

The ECL regularly participates in animations and events.
