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. 

In 2019 the Westside Circus story included




outreach workshops


public classes









Our classes provide a fun and dynamic circus experience, allowing you to explore a range of circus skills and try different equipment while developing fitness, coordination strength and flexibility. We have classes for everybody, whether our students are just starting out (at any age) or wishing to further their skills and challenge themselves. Read more or Enrol now to book your class


Schools & Groups

We deliver innovative and accessible circus workshops, from pre-school to university levels. Our programs are scaled to your needs, from small to larger groups, one-off workshops to term-long programs. Come and visit us at our studio in Preston or we'll come to you at your venue. Email or call us for more information or a custom quote.



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 our awesome African communities in Shepparton, our new friends from refugee and recently arrived families all over the northern suburbs, a really cool mob called Koorie VCAL, our beautiful friends in elderly care, and our courageous young friends who are living with disability. Email or call  to find out more.
