Welcome to NCI for 2015!

What's New for 2015?

Hello and welcome to the Northeast Clown Institute for 2015!

Hello Joeys,

We had a great time with everyone at NCI 2014 and now we are looking ahead to January 2015 and the 26th annual Northeast Clown Institute. This year’s institute will be held January 16-18, 2015. We are going back to our normal schedule of classes with balloon and make up competition, not a clown-a-rama.


For the fifth year and above students we are expanding the judging class this year to cover not only make up/costume, but also balloons and skits.   If you took the makeup/costume judging class in 2014 you can attend the balloons and skits this year.   We are also planning on holding classes on:circus skits, clown movement and clown etiquette.


The vendor room will be filled with the usual cast of characters providing: costumes, shoes, makeup supplies, magic props, walk around gags, balloons and more. 


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


The NCI board membersand 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.


Bump a Nose,


Andrew E. Matlins

Dean, Northeast Clown Institute
