Continuing Education  

Our continuing education programs allow circus arts professionals to develop their skills in order to better their creative job conditions. En Piste has been offering an annual selection of training courses since 2001, scheduled every year between the months of August and March. Classes and workshops are chosen in accordance to needs and issues identified by the professional market and are adapted to the realities of circus professionals working both independently and as staff members of organisations.

The annual educational programming covers numerous fields and disciplines, granting professionals with specific tools, creation techniques, and individualised coaching on topics ranging from production to management to safety and security.

Classes and workshops are open to ALL professional circus artists and cultural workers. However, as space is limited, priority is given to En Piste members. Note that En Piste does not issue certificates of participation.

Skills development: what does that really mean?

  • Renewing and reviving creative processes and artistic practices
  • Gaining awareness of different sectors
  • Developing strategies to start new projects
  • Learning skills in a new discipline
  • Exploring marketing and management tools
  • Acquiring career management techniques
  • Exchanging among peers about common issues
  • Meeting with renowned artists and professionals
  • Obtaining reorientation advice following an injury or career stop
