Circus School

Circus lessons for children, teens and families at the Cable Factory

Dance Theatre Hurjaruuth’s Circus School, Tonttukoulu, is a goal-oriented but relaxed circus school. Its pupils learn a wide range of circus skills: floor, pair and pyramid acrobatics, balancing acts, juggling and theatrical expression.

In addition to groups for children and young people, the school also offers toddler and family circus classes where children come together with an adult.

Every spring there is an end-of-term party where the students get to perform in theatre costumes and stage sets. The spring party is usually held on the Hurjaruuth stage. At the end of the autumn season we have open training sessions at the Hurjaruuth stage where families are welcome to experience the joy of circus and see what has been learned during the season.
