Circus in Performance is the UK's premier full time circus foundation course
2015 course now open for applications. The course will run from January 19th to April 13th 2015 at Greentop’s performing arts school and training centre in Sheffield.
CIP is a twelve-week intensive qualification in circus skills for adults. Accredited by the OCNHYR to Level 3, Greentop is a performing arts school and has been successfully running the Circus in Performance course since 1996.
The course addresses all aspects of circus skills and performance, and culminates in planning, producing, preparing and performing a successful show. It is hard work but fun and participants will need to be dedicated, determined and willing to work closely with other artists.
Each of these modules are taught by professional, practicing exponents of the art, many with national and international reputations.
The course focuses primarily on performance and presentation, rather than demonstration. Various techniques will be explored to encourage the unique performer within us all.
In addition the course covers many areas involved in performing professionally such as First Aid, Child Protection, Health and safety and how to become a successful self-employed circus performer.
Former Circus in Performance students have gone on to study at BTEC and Degree level at Circomedia, Circus Space or other international circus schools or are now working in theatre and performing arts, managing their own companies and projects, and performing at various events and festivals across the globe.

All learners are given complimentary Greentop membership for one year, entitling them to discounted rates to continue training at the centre and for future events and workshops.
