Pre-audition workshops for 2016 circus degree

6 July 2015


Pre- audition- NICA website

The National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) is putting the call out to Canberrans with a background in physical training and the dream of a professional career in performing.

NICA offers Australia’s only Bachelor of Circus Arts, which is a three-year university degree conducted at its Melbourne campus. Ahead of the auditions for the 2016 course in-take, NICA will be holding pre-audition circus workshops across all Australian states during the June/July school holidays.

Aspiring circus artists are encouraged to register for this invaluable opportunity to hone their skills before the auditions begin in September.

The workshops will focus on the audition requirements for NICA’s accredited courses, including flexibility, handstands, tumbling, strength & conditioning, movement and performance.

Past graduates from NICA, who are now professional circus performers and trainers in their own right, will facilitate all workshops, and will be able to answer any questions participants may have about the degree and life as a circus performer.

NICA’s Bachelor of Circus Arts is a great career opportunity for those with some background in physical training such as circus, sport, dance, physical theatre, gymnastics, acrobatics, martial arts, diving or trampoline. Those with a flair for the physical and a desire for a challenge should consider attending the workshops. A background in circus is not necessary.


­NICA graduates have established successful careers in Australia and internationally with acclaimed companies including Circus Oz, Circa, NoFit State and Cirque du Soleil.
