Schools

We have a wide range of offers for kindergardens and schools. For English or other foreign language speaking children we recommend a circus workshop or a tour of the museum. Our material for schools is unfortunately only available in Danish, but a guided tour and a workshop can be conducted in English.

Workshop

Everyone can participate in a workshop regardless of their language or cultural background. The workshop takes place in Fægtesalen under the instruction of our professional circus artist. The children will try a wide range of circus disciplines from juggling to trapeze, which will challenge their strength, coordination and balancing skills as well as their courage. When they succed the reward is big, which is evident by the many proud faces that can be seen at the end of the final show.

The workshop is also a good tool to bring classmates closer together. We can arrange workshops for children ranging from 6-18 years old.
