Welcome to the homepage of "Schule für Clowns" in Mainz, Germany, a private and state-approved vocational training college for professional clowns.
We appreciate your interest in our institution and would like to invite you to come with us and look at the world through the eyes of the clown.
"The arrival of a good clown in any place is more precious than thirty donkeys loaded with drugs." This old oriental wisdom describes very appropriately the special qualities and the social function attributed to the clown.
With pleasure we will provide full information about our comprehensive training programme, beginning with the first-step workshop "Discover the clown within yourself" and leading up to the two-year fulltime course for professional clowns.
The extra-occupational courses dealing with clown and communication, clown coaching, and clown education have been conceived for all those who are professionally concerned with people and who feel the need to deepen their communicational skills through the playful experience with the clown figure.
Last but not least we would like to draw your attention to the various public presentations of our students and course participants on the school premises as well as to our stage tours all over Germany.
We hope that you will enjoy reading these pages, and we would be happy to welcome you to our school - either as participant of our courses or as visitor to our shows.
