Typical of the circus culture, Studio CirQus is a nomadic business which is proud to have offered quality circus courses and workshops in a variety of locations and boroughs in Montreal including a Firehouse (2014-2014) a Circus Big Top (2014-2015) and helping renovate an old cinema converted into home of the flying trapeze school Trapezium (late 2015). As of spring s2016, Studio CirQus has found its home at Paragym, Montreal's acrobatic playground for adults. It is there that CirQus currently offers its fun and energetic aerial courses in a warm, welcoming environment. Check below for a glimpse at CirQus on the road, photos and virtual tours!
Let's get this show on the road...

Jan 2016- current
Home Sweet Home. Since January 2016, CirQus has joined a loving community of dedicated acrobats and has worked alongside Paragym & Slackline Montreal to offer acrobatic mouvement to the general public as a fitness and leisure activity. CirQus currently offers 10 aerial fitness courses at Paragym, a great complement to their floor acrobatics, force/flex courses and parkour activities.
CirQus has partnered with its sister company (literally...we're twins) called Momentom Collective.
Momentom Collective combines the benefits of circus with yoga and uses them for humanitarian and community building purposes. We believe that balance is found by experiencing both *Om Moments – mindfulness, yoga, meditation and *UM moments- adrenaline-filled experiences of exhiliration. The momentum in this case is achieved through circus arts. We do this by offering retreats, courses, performances in Central America..
Starting November 2016, follow us on Facebook on our trip down from San Francisco to Costa Rica on our circus bus with 15 artists. We are making out way to start the second year of our artist residency in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Join us! www.momentomcollective.com
