Our Studios offer open training to professionals in circus and performing arts. We have specialized equipment and infrastructure to practice aerial and groundwork disciplines. To apply for the program please send your information resume to info@The7Fingers.com
The schedule for our Open Training program is posted weekly on the Facebook Group.

Reopening
Due to COVID-19 doors to our studios have been closed since mid March. Now thanks to the support of the Government of Quebec we have been opening our studios to welcome the circus community back in to our new Open Training Program. Thanks to the CALQ and En Piste for collaborating with us on the specific needs in the circus arts regarding safety and respecting the guidelines of the Public Health Department. Reservation Platform

Free Training Propelled by Desjardins
Since March 2nd, young, up-and-coming circus artists are able to enjoy 50 days per year of free training in our Studios, at no cost. Thanks to this program, sponsored by Desjardins, young artists enjoy the benefits of training in professional spaces specifically designed and equipped to accommodate circus arts where they can perfect their technique, create and rehearse.
After the March Break, we are happy to announce a new time frame allocated to the program: from August 25th to September 4th, artists can train for free.

Rehabilitation and prevention program for muscular-skeletal injuries

Creation Residencies - Impact Project

The Conseil des Arts de Montréal, Les 7 Doigts, Cirque Éloize, En Piste and TOHU are launching the first edition of a brand new pilot project.

This project will provide an opportunity for an arts collective or a circus arts organization to develop original creations, through research and exploration of new dramatic writing for circus arts, unfettered by the constraints of presentation. It also aims to promote independent, “auteur” circus works and the emergence of new aesthetics. 

The recipient will receive a Conseil des Arts de Montréal grant to carry out a four-week residency, which will provide an opportunity to achieve an initial stage of documented development, further enabling them to seek out partners, and both public and private sources of funding. The recipient will also receive professional guidance and excellent networking opportunities from the circus arts national network, En piste.
