I should preface any description of my auditions over the last two days at the National Circus School of Montreal by saying that this is a really selective school; the best of its kind in the world. it is like an MIT or Julliard of acrobatics with training programs similar to that of Eastern European gymnastics schools.
There were 100 people auditioning for a class of 15. Surprisingly, I was not severely outclassed, but I don’t think I blew anyone away, either so I don’t know how I did at the end of the day. Auditions were pretty grueling, and I should find out in about 1 month if I got in.
