For example, some come from a gymnastics background. Whereas others grew up in a circus family. The youngest student is two and half.


The centre has an impressive near-100% record for student employment post-graduation. 93% of all alumni from the National Centre for Circus Arts are still working in the industry three years after graduating. Companies who have employed recent graduates include the Royal Shakespeare Company, NoFit State, Cirque Du Soleil and The Roundhouse.
