A jump from a trampoline onto a teeter-totter has the desired effect on the tower at the other end for soon-to-be 3-year-old Louis-David. This tyke has just completed his first circus school course, which admits students as young as 30 months. Louis-David recently performed in his first show with his dad, who took him to the classes. 

Les Jours de Cirque (Circus Days) are an event that takes place every spring at the vocational circus school on 2ième Avenue in Quebec City. At this 12th edition, many visitors at the École de Cirque de Quebec (ÉCQ) saw the annual year-end shows put on by circus stars of the future.
