Discover the thrill and joy of Circus by enrolling in one of our fabulous Term classes.

Circus is not just a way to have fun but also a great way to become fitter and stronger – physically and mentally. And make new friends!

CircusWA offers a range of Term classes catering for young children (2+) years through to adults. Whether you’d like to learn how to juggle, spin plates, walk a tight-wire, hang from a trapeze or ascend the silks, you’ll find something to challenge and excite you at the Space.

We also have regular Master-classes for professional and aspiring Circus performers, dancers, gymnasts and fitness enthusiasts.

A note about our fees…

As a not-for-profit organisation, CircusWA has always endeavoured to keep the costs for all our activities as affordable as possible.

All students of Circus WA must now be ‘members’ of the organisation before they can participate in classes. Instead of adding another expense onto your term fees, we have decided to transfer the original ‘admin fee’ to a ‘membership fee’. We have calculated this at a term by term cost. The annual fee is $40 and will be charged on each term enrolment at $10 a term. 

The benefits of becoming a member are:

(i) voting rights at AGM’s and so helping to shape the organisation’s direction

(ii) fortnightly email bulletins filled with CircusWA and industry news and information; and

(iii) we will be sourcing a raft of benefits – such as special offers and tickets – for all our members.

Please note that anyone can take out annual membership – whether they are students, performers or interested patrons. All memberships will aid the growth of CircusWA and help the organisation to expand the delivery of our programs across WA – urban / regional / scholarships / performances. Please contact the office for more information and clarification on membership.

Term 2 runs from Wednesday 26 April 2017 to Friday 30 June 2017.
