Professional Training Step Up - Upswing
STEP UP is a free professional development programme for emerging physical performers and circus practitioners from diverse backgrounds. The programme offers a combination of training and mentorship and is supported by our partners, The National Centre for Circus Arts. First run in 2010, STEP UP aims to train and nurture emerging talent in British circus and increase the level of diversity in the art form.
Our next Step Up programme will be announced soon.
“From personal experience, to successfully cast our productions it is increasingly essential that the arts industry provides facilities and organisations that help develop the skill base of performers from all backgrounds. Crucially, the ‘Step Up’ programme provides performers from a diverse range of background focused training in such skills, which has already had positive outcomes for our company.”
