About Us

Warehouse Circus is an ACT based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the mental and physical health of young people through the medium of social circus.

We offer a complete pathway to arts careers with classes for all experience levels, performance opportunities, an entertainment agency, a circus festival, and a trainer-training program.

We run circus-as-therapy for people managing complex disabilities, and classes for social inclusion and early intervention programs for young people facing comparative disadvantage.

Warehouse Circus is an Arts ACT Key Arts funded organisation and is also funded through ACT Health and the Community Services Directorate.

We partner with UCHS Kaleen to deliver a circus elective program, and we also work with numerous other ACT schools each week, delivering circus arts and outreach programs.

Warehouse Circus has delivered excellent outcomes for Canberrans for over 30 years.

We foster a co-operative environment for training and exploration, and aim to give everyone an opportunity to engage in this dynamic, highly physical, creative and fun artform.
