THE PROFESSIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS AT CIRCUS CENTER
Circus Center’s Professional Training Programs are designed for students over the age of 18 wanting to pursue a professional performing career in the circus arts. The goal of these programs is to give aspiring circus artists the necessary tools to compete in the international circus and variety market through intensive and comprehensive professional training, ending with the creation of an act – or, in the case of clown students, the creation of a basic repertoire.
Circus Center offers two Professional Training Programs:
Aerial Arts – Elena Panova, Program Director
The Clown Conservatory – Joe, Program Director
Supporting the Program Directors, Circus Center’s international faculty brings to the training process a vast performing experience and extensive artistic and technical knowledge.
