Circus WOW: The Wollongong Women’s Community Circus

Circus WOW is a women’s circus where women can have fun, play, learn, work and create in a supportive community. We are a circus for the Women Of Wollongong. WOW is a not-for-profit physical theatre and circus organisation located in Wollongong on the south coast of New South Wales. We provide a range of circus training classes and workshops for adult women. WOW women also have opportunities to participate in a variety of arts community projects, including performances.

Our focus is on the creation of a supportive and fun space, where the individual well-being of women is nurtured and their physical and creative potential celebrated. Join us for amazing opportunities among a diverse group of women who share a sense of play and adventure!

Community and corporate organisations can book Circus WOW for events.  From time to time we also offer public workshops and outreach programs for adults and children.

Photos: Many of the photos appearing on this page and this website are courtesy of Nina Kourea, long time friend and community partner of WOW. Without Nina, WOW wouldn’t look half so good!

We are a safe space

Circus WOW welcomes all women 18+, including those who identify as women.
We also welcome intersex, non-binary and gender-diverse people.
