Contemporary Circus Arts has a growing and thriving community in Canada thanks to internationally acclaimed companies and schools such as Montreal’s Cirque du Soleil and Ecole Nationale du Cirque ( The National Circus School). Without a doubt the Circus Arts have entered the mainstream.
The Rising is the first official circus school in the booming Westshore of Vancouver Island offering recreational to pre-professional circus classes and workshops.
They have become a place where the community comes to discover their creative and physical potential.
Not only is The Rising a circus school but it has developed a professional performing company providing live circus entertainment for corporate, private, and community events.
They have been a profitable business since day one of opening and have their sights set on expanding the school to offer more disciplines and coaching opportunities and develop their own full-length circus show productions for the public.
