DOCH is the only educational institution of its kind for dance and circus in Sweden's system of higher education.

DOCH is also the place for those who are already in the profession and want to expand their competence and we offer research education for artists. It is a dynamic and creative environment where art and research go hand in hand. At DOCH the tradition is challenged by innovation and experiment.
