Professional track training program

We’re happy to announce the formation of our Professional Track Training Program. Our informal program has been in effect for several years, and selected students have gone on to work in professional companies and to further training with the National Circus School. Now we’re opening this up to a wider spectrum of students on a formal, year-round basis.

The PTTP will assist the serious student in the creation of performance pieces through a multidisciplinary approach and advanced classes. It will introduce them to a rounded program which will prepare them for auditions and work with other companies and schools. Teachers will assist the selected students in developing professional training habits, and the development of a primary circus skill and a minimum of two secondary strong skills.

The program will set attainable goals through defined curriculum outcomes, working with highly trained instructors, quarterly reviews of progress and specific bi-weekly assignments. Contact us atinfo@halifaxcircus.com for more information and for audition information.

Where to find us!


Halifax Circus, located in downtown Halifax, is a non-profit cooperative of professional circus artists and teachers. In 2015 we celebrated out 10th Anniversary with a series of special shows, new classes and workshops, and guest performers.

Our teachers have performed with the Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Brothers, and taught and performed at festivals in Singapore, Europe, India, the U.S., Africa, Mexico, the Yukon and across Canada. Check out our classes‎ and be part of the excitement at Halifax Circus.

We have a threefold mission: to practice and perform circus work at the highest level, to teach those skills to students at our school, and to work with youth at risk through our social circus initiatives.
