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.

  • Sök eller besök Cirkusgymnasiet

    Feel the atmosphere and meet the students. You are always welcome to come and visit us in the circus hall in Alby, regardless of whether you already know you want to apply or are mostly curious. The easiest way is to email us. Hope to see you!

    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.

  • Cirkusgymnasiet on Instagram and TikTok!

    The students film themselves and post clips from their training.

  • A school day with Eliott Malhotra

    Influencer Eliott Malhotra tried going to Cirkusgymnasiet for a day. Join him as he tests the training, speech exercises, and theatre class and chats with the staff in the dining hall.

Year 2 at the National Theatre

  • Every year the second-years have a project together with our neighbours at Riksteatern (the National Theatre) in Hallunda. Together with a director, the students try out what it is like to develop a performance.
