About Trapeze High
Welcome to Trapeze High, San Diego’s ONLY Flying Trapeze School!
Born through a dream to share our passion for flying with others, Trapeze High is a school and training facility for people of all ages, abilities and skill levels. The people that come out to play with us come from a variety of lifestyles and vocations. We welcome first timers as well as more experienced fliers. We have ongoing classes for individuals or groups. We hope you will enjoy flying on the trapeze as much as we do and want to come back to become more proficient at this sport. The more you practice, the more fun it is. Most of us aren’t going to run away and join the circus (although we CAN help you with that if you have the desire to work really hard, be paid minimally, and live in a shipping container or tiny trailer). Recreational flying trapeze gives you the best of both worlds right here in San Diego County.
“We are all meant to shine,
as children do.
It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others”
The mission of Trapeze High LLC is to offer people of all ages and skill levels an opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of flying trapeze.
The Original Flying Monkey
The heart of Trapeze High is a memorial to celebrate the life of Jacob (the Monkey) Ayers. Jacob, the son of David and stepson of Lindsay, grew up flying on the trapeze, learning how to work the board, pull safety lines and catch as a young teenager. Jake’s sweet disposition and lightness supported so many frightened first time flyers on the trapeze board. He still has no equal in that regard. Jake was an integral part of the development of our flying school. Jake was a friend to all of us at the rig, both staff and Club members alike. We dedicate our flying trapeze school to his memory. We think there should be more people like Jake in the world. Our intention is to create a healthy environment for children of all ages to develop their wings, so they too can become flying monkeys!
