The Conurbation Community also makes space available, located in La Roquette sur Siagne in ECSVS.

"Piste d’Azur draws on more than 15 years’ experience in vocational training.
We offer course participants quality equipment, particularly in new premises which are perfectly suited to circus activities. They also have the benefit of a strong partnership with our professional environment (tertiary arts schools, venues for creation and outreach, etc.).
These activities are carried out by a team of permanent professionals experienced in the
field of expression, acrobatics and physical preparation. They are regularly supported by a growing network of artists specialising in circus techniques and collaborations with professional companies welcomed throughout the year to the Regional Circus Arts Centre.
Training activities are based on a strong cultural partnership, particularly with the Mediterranean National Hub for Circus Arts, the Theatre of Grasse, the Department of Cultural Affairs of the City of Cannes, as well as Cannes School of Dance.
It is also developed by a strong involvement in the activities of school networks such as the French and European Federations of Circus Schools and cooperation with other Circus Training Centres.
