The education of ACAPA enables its students to start a professional career in the artistic field of contemporary circus and in other related performing arts. It provides them with the capacities to meet the requirements of an continuously evolving art on a professional level. This consists of mastering the common language, and the specific correlation between artistic processes and technical excellence.

In the first two years of the program, the focus is on basic skills and knowledge. The students develop an understanding of the physical practice and methods of training, creating and the theoretical context of the circus profession.

During physical theatre the student develops an understanding about how to be on stage. They learn about stage presence, neutrality and expressivity. They are invited to explore their own body language as an instrument of expression. Importance is laid on the development of the student’s capacity for improvisation, cooperation and creation in a group. In this level, the student is introduced to several means of composition to apply in group- and individual work. Collective and individual feedback are part of the course.
