I have a couple of extra links to add to this:
In terms of classes available to the public:

http://www.circuscenter.org (San francisco)
http://www.aerialize.com.au (Sydney, Australia)
http://www.circusinstitute.com (Coffs Harbour, Australia)

The following circus organisations also teach contortion but you need to audition/enrol in their courses:
http://www.beijing-art.com/home.php (China)
http://www.nica.com.au (Melbourne, Australia)
http://www.cpit.ac.nz/subjects/circoarts/ (New Zealand)
..and there are no doubt others...

I couldnt see any reference to contortion training on the circusArts website.

Other than that well done on assembling a list!
I continued adding schools to the map but http://www.circusinstitute.com (Coffs Harbour, Australia) seems to be gone. You have any infos if they still exist?
Well, it must be down for maintenance or something, it was working just a couple of weeks ago. I know they definately still exist in fact the website announced that they will be moving to bigger and better premises this year, maybe you could try contacting Jasmine George (shes a member here) since its her school.
Cool, I currently go to the New York Circus Arts Academy in NYC for fabric, and there are people who do flexibility at the same time I do fabric, and I can tell (even though I haven't done any myself), if you are a person who really wants to get flexible, and is willing to hold stretches for a few minutes, then I highly recommend that.
Can you check if I placed the NYCAA correclty on the map?
members and contortion schools             add to this map!
I am pleased to announce that circus oz (Melbourne, Australia) will now be offering term classes in contortion from next term onwards! Hooray now Melbourne has classes too!
