FlyTeam Program

The FlyTeam program is for students excited and committed to focusing on their flying trapeze skills. Our comprehensive curriculum is designed to help you develop the most effective training techniques, both on the rig and off, with classes in the air, on the ground and on the trampoline.

Flying classes will focus on technique and form. Specialized conditioning and strength training classes will target the explosive strength necessary for flying. Trampoline classes will be used to practice acrobatic skills and develop aerial and body awareness for high level flying trapeze. After completion of the program, you should be able to assess and address any plateaus in your own training.

Why circus school?
Perhaps you're wondering what circus school can offer that you can't get on your own. The answer is EVERYTHING!

• Dedicated career coaches there to pay attention to your every move, correct form, give you the tools for training in a methodical (and body smart!) way, and give you the skills, techniques and creative instigation you didn't even know existed.

• Work the things you don't want to work. That's right - Don't you have things you KNOW you should be working on, but somehow always find a reason not to? Of course you do! Circus school coaches are there to make sure nothing falls through the cracks and you become a well-balanced artist with all the skills.

• A group of people working as hard as you are! There's nothing like being in a group of supportive artists working just as hard as you are and making gains every day towards a circus career. Seeing other people do the impossible and come back for more means that there is inspiration around you on a daily basis.

• Networking. We hold auditions for other organizations and happily send referrals to a vast number of performance companies for our graduates. People call us to find their next performer and that makes it easier on our students to find work.
