We are committed to small group sizes - 12 participants - and to a person-centred approach that is respectful of each individualís path towards discovering his or her own clown.

Our courses are programmed to offer you a clear progression through our work - Clown 1, 2, 3, Performance and Social Clowning. We recommend that you take at least two years to complete this progression but it can take longer.
