And Much, much more!

From the first day, you’ll be learning skills which you’ll demonstrate at a graduation show that you’ll help put together! Invite your friends and family to watch, and we’ll even film it for you to keep, so you can show the rest of the people you know what a clown you really are! Our next class will be announced later this year.
