A continuing education course for you AND about the patients you are most passionate about.


This course is for clinicians (and those about to be) to gain the confidence you need to help circus artists get back to what they love and build a niche practice that makes you excited to go to work. 

Approved for 10 hours of CE by the California Physical Therapy Association

(CPTA #21-154)

Over twelve weeks, beginning Thursday September 2 2021, we will be breaking down what makes circus artists different. We'll touch on everything from how they approach their training and their body, how (and when) they present with injuries, what the most common injuries are, how to assess their circus skills, and how to get them back to training.

This is the course I wish I had when I was starting out. To try to fill the void I took courses about dancers, about cross-fitters, and heck even about pitchers to try to understand the challenges circus artists face, but the big thing I learned is that circus artists are different.

Fly High and Dive Deep into Circus Culture and Knowledge


During the twelve week course, you will get the bonus of meeting and interacting with guest lecturers from complementary fields who know circus bodies and can speak about challenges that are unique to the circus population


AND we will work on building relationships in your community to become a trusted care provider and get clients in the door.

"The best thing about this course was just how well broken down the lectures were. Even though I have minimal experience with circus artists, I feel like I now have a good place to start. I've also had some carry over in my gymnast population, so it's been incredibly helpful!" - Ashley Hiscock, ATC
