Welcome to a unique circus school!
We can teach you to dare more than you think you would!
At Cirkus Unik’s Circus School children between seven and twelve years get to learn many different circus techniques. We focus on children's self-esteem, joy and cooperation.
Cirkus Unik trains more than 250 children in seven different neighborhoods in Gothenburg. Here everyone can meet; with their similarities and differences.
SELF-ESTEEM AND TEAM COLLABORATION
We get the kids to dare more than they thought they would, both individually and in groups. Self-esteem increases when you know that you are good as you are. We show that it is good with differences and that each one has his own time to develop.
With us all children train on their own terms, regardless of their background and previous experience.
Contemporary circus is a mixture of culture and sport - and we take the best from both; We offer creativity, imagination and an uncompetitive exercise.
There is a place for everyone in the circus!
Circus training is versatile and playful. With us the children develop coordination, strength and agility - and have fun while doing it.
When we train with the kids we put safety first. This applies to our equipment and our personal presence, but also that all children will learn proper techniques from the beginning.
WHAT PARENTS SAY
We come from Palestine and only lived in Sweden for a little more than a year. The girls felt at home directly. All three. So it has not been with any other activity.
Our daughter found her element when she joined Circus Unik. She builds self-esteem and self-reliance in contemporary circus interaction. A terrific way to use the body in a creative work. You are absolutely gorgeous and present educators!
Your leadership has really strengthened our daughters to dare to try again but also that it is ok not to venture and wait until you want to.
I think you have an incredible ability to really see and meet all children, ranging from how to greet and meet us at the door to how you get them to develop as individuals!
A moment of magic suddenly happens in the room during the show. In this moment it is as if she leads herself. I see that she dares a little and dares a little less, dares again and dares a little more. It's great to take part of such a courageous act and so insanely beautiful!

THE CIRCUS OF THE
Our circus schools are found in seven neighborhoods: Angered, Bergsjön, Biskopsgården, Frölunda, Hisings Backa , Lundby, Majorna, och Tynnered.
Cirkus Unik wants to help make Gothenburg a bit more egalitarian. That’s why we are trying to find the children with limited opportunities - children who for various reasons do not have access to all social networks or do not yet speak Swedish- for example, children who recently arrived from other countries.
Right now, we welcome applications for our circus schools in Majorna and in Lundby

CIRCUS FOR CHILDREN WITH VARIABLE FUNCTIONALITY BEHAVIOUR
All children are unique !! During the spring of 2017, Cirkus Unik had the opportunity to work with children with functional variations such as concentration and language difficulties in a Gothenburg school. We have seen the children make huge progress in just a few lessons and both school management and parents have asked for renewed cooperation. We are pleased to be able to continue in cooperation with Kulturskolan also during the course of HT 2017.
These children are very difficult to attend regular sports education. Complicated rules and long reviews are difficult for them and not rarely leads to the feeling of exclusion, conflict, misunderstanding and communication problems.
Nycirkus has for them meant a new and more free exercise where each child has found its place where they made great progress with increased self-esteem and better group collaboration as a result. Nycirkus is a universal language that everyone understands and can "speak", which is a great relief for children with language difficulties.
In the circus you do not have to compete with others; Each child develops at its own pace with joy and with itself as the only measure. All children are unique !!
