How do the choices made by Circus Schools affect the artform?
What do schools do to encourage diversity of students (cultural diversity, gender, ability etc), what more could be done?
Does the emphasis on circus skills come at the expense of other aspects of performance (or vice versa)? How do the schools balance in their courses?
