The Circus Conservatory of America is setting up shop in a new development on Thompson Point in Portland. While that facility is under construction, they're offering lessons on various aerial and terrestrial circus stunts. Leaders of the school say that not only does the training hone the body, it helps develop focus in the mind as well.
From the CCA website:
THE CIRCUS CONSERVATORY OF AMERICA is launching in Portland, Maine as an institution of higher education with a primary mission to provide the highest caliber artistic education available in the United States to circus artists. We will be the "Juilliard of Circus"—the nation's most rigorous artistic and academic program available to circus artists. Recognizing our responsibilities for general education in the humanities, we are pursuing accreditation by following the process and standards set by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
