Circus school comes to town for auditions

November 4, 2010
So you think you want to run away to join a circus? Here is your chance.

The National Circus School will be in Victoria tomorrow as part of its cross-Canada pre-selection tour, looking for young people between the ages of nine and 17 with some experience in gymnastics or theatre.

During the tour the school's staff will hold workshops designed to assess the aspiring artist's calibre and potential. It will also give starry-eyed hopefuls an idea of what skills and talents circuses look for these days.

The Montreal-based school has trained nearly 400 artists in its 30-year history. Graduates of the school usually go on to work with Canadian companies, including the famed Cirque du Soleil.

The open auditions will be held tomorrow from

5 to 8 p.m. at the Falcon Gymnastics Centre, 208-721 Vanalman Ave. Pre-registration is mandatory. For more information and online registration, visit nationalcircusschool.ca.
