2019 Graduation show

Galapiat Cirque

Creation At the CNAC
December 2019

In Châlons-en-Champagne circus

Group graduating show

The last phase of the course, known as the professional integration phase, consists in particular in the creation and presentation of the graduation show which validates the diploma.

This year, the CNAC has entrusted Galapiat Cirque with the creation of the show.

This group, with its collective approach, was born a little more than ten years ago within the CNAC itself.
Since then, it has earned its reputation with its numerous shows, its bike and caravan tours, its territorial projects, a solid foothold in Brittany and an unquestionable professional and public recognition.
Korean seesaw, smooth rope, acro-dancing, juggling, aerial hoop, Chinese mast, flying rope, Cyr wheel and swinging trapeze: the 31st class of sixteen students, nine nationalities and nine circus disciplines, led by Galapiat Cirque, are waiting for you.
