Welcome to the Northeast Clown Institute and "Clown College" for 2017. ...

NCI for 2016 was a great success! Now it's time to register for our 28th annual Northeast Clown Institute. This year’s institute will be held January 20-22, 2017. Please note, this year classes on Friday will begin at 12 noon. Having established a more educational schedule of classes, Emphasis will be makeup & Costume accomplishment measured as a final grade rather than a competition.

For the 5th year and above students we have in the past year expanded makeup, costume, balloons, skits. We are planning on holding classes on circus skits, clown movement, clown etiquette, circus clowning.

As usual, the vendor room will be filled with all the hard-to-find costumes, shoes, makeup supplies, magic props, walk around gags, balloons, and more.

If you are a first year student, may I suggest that you see our list of recommended items here to bring with you. We are arranging with Simplicity at Clown Supplies to have a low cost introductory makeup kit available for you to use as you get started and decide what type of clown you want to be.

The NCI board members and instructors look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. We expect another fun, educational weekend for all. If you have any questions as you prepare for the Institute, please contact me or any member of the board with questions.

Keep a smile in your heart
