Artistic and cultural education

The Cnac places particular importance on artistic and cultural education, which is a vector of equal opportunities and cultural democratization.
Acting in its double capacity of National centre and State operator, it has developed several axes:

The Lycée Pierre Bayen in Châlons-en-Champagne Baccalauréat L, circus arts option

with the Cnac École Supérieure

This establishment created a Bac L, Circus arts option in September 2012. The Cnac played a central role by putting an exceptionally rich tool at their disposal in the shape of circus specialization classes with some of its permanent teachers and its students, access to technical equipment as well as to the Resource centre, work sessions, rehearsals and performances.

Artistic residences in the school environment

with the Professional Integration Unit

The Cnac graduates spend 6 weeks in Champagne-Ardenne secondary or high schools. Their time is split between circus workshops organized for the students with the host teaching team, and personal research projects.

Training courses for the National Education

with the lifelong learning department

In partnership with the Préac de l’Académie de Reims (research centre for artistic and cultural education), the Cnac has set up several training initiatives to help the National Education with educational and artistic activities related to the circus.

For example:
- teacher training in the circus arts (national level),
- raising awareness among teachers of the circus arts in the framework of an academic training plan (PAF),
- helping with artistic residencies in the school milieu for establishments welcoming circus arts projects.
