NIAGARA FALLS, NY (WKBW-TV) — If you ever thought seriously about becoming a clown, you are not alone. Niagara Clown Alley has a ten week course for people who want to brush up on their clown skills.

Students will lean the finer points of creating a unique character, using make-up and costume and then get instruction on the tricks of the trade.

Niagara Clown Alley president Carol Marx-also known as "Corabelle" heads up the clown classes. Carol says you don't have to have a big personality to become a clown, adding "we have clowns that go to hospitals, nursing homes, clowns that just want to walk in parades."

If you want to learn plate spinning, juggling and balloon twisting, you can get your clown on by contacting Niagara Clown Alley on Facebook.
