The Zirkusakademie Wien (Circus Academy of Vienna) offers a circus education programme and workshops in Austria.
Its two-year programme dispenses a specialisation in either circus pedagogy or circus arts, with courses mostly offered evenings and weekends. It is directed at people who will consider the programme as an addition to their profession or occupation (teachings, dancing, acting etc.), or as an enrichment to their personal development.
Apart from the two-year programme, the Zirkusakademie Wien (ZAW) offers workshops and courses accessible to the general public. These give people the opportunity to gain an insight into the world of circus, and to learn and train specific circus skills.
