Before you can begin working as a Cirque du Soleil artist you must go through a period of training which will vary in time depending on your level of experience.
They offer a program that will suit the needs of the different applicants in a wide range of areas covered by a wide team of specialists in each field.
The talented team of recruitment officers includes people such as acrobatic coaches, artistic coaches, health professionals, performance experts, nutritionists, interpreters and more, each bringing their unique background and skill to an amazing experience.
In order to assist artists to move from the basic show or performance they may have been involved with to the actual stage, they have an entire training program which can be seen by clicking here.
Depending on your chosen speciality and the role that you are being given, your training can go from as little as a few days to several months.
