Circus Helsinki is a circus school located in Suvilahti, Helsinki. More than a thousand students train with us weekly, from babies to seniors and from beginners to experts. Circus is a communal and versatile hobby: it develops creativity, performance skills, mobility, coordination, and interpersonal skills. Our key values are open community, creativity and joy, perseverance, and responsibility.
Circus Helsinki offers basic arts education in accordance with the extended syllabus of the national core curriculum. We also have several family groups and a diverse range of classes for adults. Our high-level performing group has earned an international reputation in the field of youth circus and performs on request at various events.
In addition to weekly teaching activities, we organize e.g. camps, courses, circus performances and an international youth circus festival called YlösAlas. We also offer private lessons for special occasions such as work well-being days, bachelor parties and birthdays. Our training hall is a beautiful space with an art nouveau spirit, which can also be used for performances, seminars, and parties.
