Delivering the circus hours:

A strong focus on acrobatics or physical training.
The program is tailored according to the needs and demands of the students and teachers. For the holidays we provide a thesis stage (BV: Parkour, rocker, Clowning,…).

What do we mean by option circus skills? Circus is an art form based on three elements:
body, object & the space

How these three elements relate to each other determines how a circus act will look like. Those three elements we find back in training:

– acrobatics and physical training: the artist trains his body by daily physical training
– circus techniques: he chooses an object to work with in his act, for instance. a trapeze, cones or a partner. With this item is extremely hard and with a lot of discipline practiced
– Circus theater: with drama and dance he determines how he moves in space, compares to others

What is a "normal" week off?

– each year 2 hours per week devoted to acrobatics.
– In the 1st and 2nd grade we work for the remaining hours modules (juggling, acro-borne, air acro, balance, dance, Theatre, creation,…)
– In 3rd grade you have next to 2am acrobatics, 3 am specialization or 2 hours Circus theater

The students of the Circus Humanities may freely participate in the freetraining at Cirkus in Motion and Hal5.
