In the preparatory program for students nine years of age and older and the Circus and High School Studies program for those at the secondary level, young people undertake circus arts training at a professional level with the aim of developing their full potential from an early age. The programs involve not only solid physical preparation, but technical and artistic training in the basic disciplines of circus, dance and performing arts.
The Preparatory program involves 13 hours of training per week. Regular instruction is held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings, as well as Saturday mornings. It is intended for young people between 9 and 13 years of age who wish to undertake circus arts training while pursuing their primary or secondary education at another academic institution in the metropolitan Montreal area.
