Online Clown Courses
"How to be a great Clown"
Welcome to the Online Clown Course Level One:
"The Zero State, Playing with the Audience and the Flop"
Join our Online Clown Course that is being enjoyed by students from all over the planet! From Australia to Canada, Germany to the USA, Catalonia and Spain, for a year all kinds of people are learning fast and understanding what being a Clown is really about!
You can set your own schedule and do the work at your own rhythm. Also, you will be able to read, listen, and watch all the information as many times as you wish, while in a course in person you may not even remember what the teacher said!
In Part Two of the First ClownPack you will start recording yourself both in the street and indoors, and sending this homework to Clara to get your feedback. So, aside from receiving a very detailed and fun explanation about every single component of Clowning, both spiritual and practical, you will have hours and hours of guided practice.

This unique course, created by the founder and director of the Escola de Clown de Barcelona (currently called Escola de Clown "Cal Clown"), proves that not only can you learn Clowning on your own, but that doing it online has a lot of advantages.
“If you had any doubts about whether you could learn clowning at a distance, they will disappear when you start this course” (Jon Davison, director of London Clown School and author of ‘Clown Training – a practical guide’)
After 23 years of Clowning, since I started with Phillipe Gaulier,
After 15 years teaching Clown,
After 10 years running the international Escola de Clown,
After 8 years of living with my students on the residential courses at Cal Clown....
I felt I had to bring together the knowledge accumulated over all these years,
And make it easy for people to enjoy it,
So I decided to create an Online Clown Course!
Technology at the service of Clowning - great!
Another way of making this journey,
The Journey to YOU, your Clown, your JOY, and your wonderful Shows…
Your wish to be a Clown is my guide, my strength, my FUN!
So let's connect, let's discover, let's learn, let's PLAY!
“Clara’s teaching videos and other materials are at once educational, entertaining, charming and insightful. Teacher, performer, guide and thinker, all rolled into one! Clara’s commitment to each student as an individual is exceptional.” (Jon Davison)
An immensely enriching experience in which to learn how to clown with autonomy and your own criteria, with the constant support of your teacher along the journey.
Do you have experience performing clown, but feel you sometimes lose touch with your Clown? This course is ideal for reconnecting with your innocence, stupidity and joy in your interactions with audiences and with yourself!
Not only will you receive personalised feedback on each stage of your learning, but also some homework tasks will be personalised in order to address each individual’s needs, requirements and “idiotsyncrasies”.
Enrol now and work at your own pace, from anywhere in the world!
Do you want to learn one of the professions which is most fun and most healing both for you and others?
Without having to travel for it and at your own pace?
And all this taught by a professional of many years’ experience!
On this course you will receive:
Continual tutoring from Clara Cenoz to help you learn and assimilate what a Clown is and what you should do to connect with your Clown.
Who is this course for?
For those who are curious about Clowning and haven’t yet been able to do a course.
For those who want to work on Clowning in more depth with the help of a skilled professional, having already attended some courses previously.
For those who already work with Clowning and who want to acquire more tools and a greater awareness of their work.
Who will help you?
Clara Cenoz has been a Clown since 1993 and a teacher for 15 years. She has been director of the Escola de Clown de Barcelona since 2006. During that time she has helped hundreds of students from all over the world to encounter the Clown and to create unique and personalised numbers.
¨Her generosity in class is unique, and her ability to support you at those moment when you feel uncomfortable. She knows how to communicate a lot of information without you feeling overwhelmed. She supports you a lot during the work and at the same time leaves you lots of room to create and decide for yourself. She knows how to make you feel safe. There is a lot of love in her way of teaching.” (student on the October 2016 course)
Some comments from students already enrolled on the course:
"The videos are amazing! Such a wonderful course!"
“Watching the video again and taking notes! These will help not only with clowning but with life too!“
“Love the videos! So much fun stuff in them!!”
“Sometimes I have a really good gig and sometimes I have some that I feel were not as good. the ones that are the best are the ones where I would actually do some of the things you talk about but without realizing it....after gigs I ask myself ‘why did this gig go better then this other gig?’ but now that I’m aware of what made them work, it’s going to help a lot! also now there is so much more stuff to try and learn! “
"Thank you! I loved the videos I have seen so far and your support is perfect"
“What a great start in to the clown workshop! I was reading the pdf in a bus ... I had to laugh a lot about it… right there other people started to laugh with me, some were even crying of laughter!”
“I am starting to do more often what I love doing and bring me fun... I am singing in public...The people’s reaction is most of the time so great!! I am feeling from the inside to outside...If I have fun everyone around me seems to be under the influence of fun, too:)
I am learning about myself, meeting myself and connecting so much more... AND IT JUST STARTED!!”
“After watching your videos I think that the concept of innocence and joy are so important. Your way of getting to innocence, joy and the clown is an inner path. Many people will do everything to avoid this, because they have fear to change.
So I think even if you are advanced, you need a lesson in innocence because it is making you fresh and unique. In our times it may be the most important task to learn, to be innocent again. If you want to be intact, no change at all, just show me the tricks to be funny, show me the gags, then you will fail to be clown.”
And from Jon Davison, “Once you’ve made some advances in your clowning, beyond the first encounter with the clown - it’s easy to forget the fundamentals: stupidity, innocence, joy – I’d highly recommend this course to anyone serious about clowning, no matter what experience you have”
And once you’ve completed Level One, you’ll be able to go onto Level Two, …. and very soon we will be creating and directing your numbers!
And if what you’re looking for is directing for your numbers you are already creating or performing, Clara offers Online Clown Directing, see here for details.
