Upper Secondary School
Love exercising? Dancing? Theater? Parkour? Then this is the high school for you!
Education with total control and presence
At Cirkusgymnasiet you train both intellect and body in a creative environment. The combination of theory, artistry and training suits both you who dream of a future as an international circus artist, and you who have other dreams but want to train and develop artistically during your school years.

Full of questions?
Where will I live? What do you learn from circus training? Can I really become a circus artist? Cirkusgymnasiet's artistic leader Daniel Gulko answers common questions.
Aesthetic programme - Contemporary circus (ESC)
Cirkusgymnaiset is run together with St. Botvid's gymnasium. About half the days you study your theoretical subjects with them, the other half you spend in the circus hall with us in Alby. The education is, of course, university preparatory.
We at Cirkus Cirkör prepare you to reach your physical and artistic peak. Our international teaching team are all artists. They know exactly what you need to learn in order to be able to apply for higher circus education around the world.
