The Flying Trapeze is one of the most iconic and spectacular of traditional circus acts. But it is much more.

Once only undertaken by a few elite acrobats, it is a learning experience now available to ordinary people of all ages. It is a chance to break through, to experience our own capacity, and to develop mastery in ways most of us can’t imagine. It is a chance to do something extraordinary in a safe and nurturing environment, under the guidance and in the hands of experienced professional coaches. It is a chance for you to fly. And, it is fun – for the whole family.

During the summer of 2021, Sportsplex will host its third annual summer flying trapeze academy, The program is a partnership with LISTO Flying Trapeze and the award winning international flyers and coaches of the renowned Flying Royals troupe.

During the continuing pandemic we are operating under well-thought out and prudent Health and Safety Protocols that are in full compliance with federal, state, and local guidelines. We are monitoring the situation as it evolves, and adapting our practices as needed.

Our team is also available for special events such as intensive workshops, birthday parties, organizational team-building events, and performances. In addition to regular flying trapeze classes, expert instruction is available in other circus disciplines including aerial performance, handstands, juggling, and flexibility/conditioning.

A portion of the proceeds from this program will be donated in support of Safe Harbors of the Hudson’s RitzKidz Circus on the Green, providing free social circus training to young people in the City of Newburgh.
