The Circus that keeps on giving
Once upon a time a clever lady had a magical idea. Circus, she thought, is fun. Circus, she thought, is exciting. Circus, she thought, changes lives. That idea grew and almost 25 years later Westside Circus has become a company of many talents, all striving to keep that idea alive.
At Westside Circus we offer all kinds of classes and workshops for all kinds of skill levels and all kinds of people, from the local community to schools and community groups far and wide. And as a not-for-profit organisation, each sale we make directly supports vulnerable Victorians to access our circus programs.

For 23 years, WSC’s outreach program has taken circus to the streets, visiting marginalised communities from Shepparton to Brazil. We’re currently working on projects with awesome African communities in North Melbourne, our new friends from refugee and recently arrived families all over the northern suburbs, an all female Hoop Army in the North East, a really cool mob called Koorie VCAL, our beautiful friends in elderly care, and our courageous young friends who are living with disability.
