Dell'Arte School of Physical Theatre P.O. Box 816 Blue Lake, California 95525 (707) 668-5663
Dell'Arte isn't a circus school per se, but it is the only full-time school of physical theatre in North America. It's located about 15 miles east of Arcata, CA in Blue Lake, a small logging town with nothing but the school and a bar. Students come from all over the world, average student body is 15 - 30 people.
It's a school of physical styles, so there is a fair emphasis on circus arts such as acrobatics, juggling, etc., but the main focus is on work in mask, clown, mime, melodrama, farce, and commedia dell'arte. There is a resident company who produce and tour.
It's a great school!
See the Gamma Phi Circus Homepage for information. Illinois State University is located in Normal, Illinois.
