Clown Conservatory Awarded NEA Grant

We are so proud to announce that Clown Conservatory, Circus Center's unique multidisciplinary training program for aspiring professional clowns, has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts!

This grant represents recognition at the very highest level of this program that is setting the standard for New American Clowning. Under Director Sara Moore's brilliant leadership, Clown Conservatory is maintaining its 17-year tradition of rigorous, comprehensive instruction and preparation for the aspiring professional clown. At the same time, Sara and her top-notch faculty are constantly innovating, pushing the art of clowning forward into new media and a new era.

I could not be prouder of Sara and her team. Frankly, I think she’s a genius.
