    This professional internship represents a milestone in my career as a clown. It allowed me to put my foot in the stirrup of exploring and anchoring my clownish state. The lessons learned are precious gifts to build my universe both in the creation of future acts, and in my approach as a therapeutic clown. I come away lit, touched and in deep gratitude for the generous teachers! I recommend it to anyone who wants to leave with a solid foundation and an openness to a world of possibilities!

    Making progress in this passion I'm revisiting, one clown nose at a time! An enriching experience that allowed me to experience the world of emotions in a real and authentic connection with myself, my play partner and the audience! Great group with whom I have shared sadness, fear, anger and joys in PLEASURE! -Sophie Lalande

    Clown-2 is a very technical and content-rich workshop! This was my second time participating and I am very satisfied with the experience. It was really nice to work with Francine and Jean and to be around a group of such beautiful artists." - Mathieu St-Gelais

    I love the workshops at the Clown and Comedy School, I feel well supported in my practice of the art of clowning. I come out each time with a lot of knowledge that will be useful on stage. I see a real evolution of my clowning after each workshop. Francine and Jean strive to make each exercise a success. There is a mutual respect for each other. Clowning is an art form that is so close to ourselves and the other person opens up to us so much in a context of vulnerability that it is impossible not to love them. You come away with a lot of new friends. I love being part of this big family. Thank you for everything! See you soon, at Clown 3." -Raphaëlle Pépin

    Cette formation m'a permis d’oser être encore plus moi en découvrant entres autres l’importance d’être authentique, vulnérable, de savoir utiliser ce qui me démarque, ainsi que comment donner et recevoir du public. Faire rire le public est important mais les toucher par différentes émotions aussi. Ça m’a permis d’aller à la rencontre de richesses insoupçonnées en moi qui me permettre de créer encore plus d'infinies possibilités autant dans l’approche thérapeutique du clown que dans le Yoga du rire. Quelle énergie, espace, conscience, magie et possibilité puis-je être pour inspirer encore plus de gens à choisir de s’émerveiller de tous ces magnifiques cadeaux que la vie nous offre? Un merci incommensurable pour ces moments enrichissants de rire et de vulnérabilité, à Jean & Francine et à cette nouvelle belle famille de clowns. Oser être soi est une richesse inestimable pour toi, pour tes proches et pour le monde. Oseras-tu t’inscrire aux prochaines formations afin de découvrir le magnifique cadeau que tu es?" *****   "This training allowed me to dare to be even more me by discovering, among other things, the importance of being authentic, vulnerable, knowing how to use what sets me apart, as well as how to give and receive. public. Making the public laugh is important but touching them with different emotions too. It allowed me to meet unsuspected riches within me which allowed me to create even more infinite possibilities both in the therapeutic approach of the clown and in Laughter Yoga. What energy, space, awareness, magic, and possibility can I be to inspire even more people to choose to marvel at all of these wonderful gifts that life gives us? An immeasurable thank you for these enriching moments of laughter and vulnerability, to Jean & Francine and to this new beautiful family of clowns.
