Since 1983, ENACR has been based on the fundamental principle of training circus artists with a high technical level and artistic versatility.
It also offers amateur training, support for professional creation and numerous mediation actions in the region.
The training of amateurs is open to all without a competitive spirit and seeks to contribute to the development of each individual through technical and artistic, multidisciplinary and playful work.
The professional training is part of a circus arts training program. ENACR's pedagogical project is based on the meeting of circus techniques and other artistic disciplines. During their studies, students are put into professional situations through the creation and presentation of shows and participate in one or more projects in collaboration with cultural structures and/or professional training in France and abroad.
The artistic and cultural actions that ENACR carries out are realized in close collaboration with social and educational structures of the territory. These actions aim to develop and promote the knowledge and practice of circus disciplines. They also contribute to the development of the audiences reached, as well as to the enrichment of their personal culture.
Hosting artists and entertainment professionals at the school encourages exchanges and meetings between students and professionals. The school is a place of expression and regularly welcomes artists by offering, depending on the availability of its space, a place for training and rehearsal to professionals in the entertainment industry.
