MY STORY

Jennings was introduced to circus while attending Illinois State University, which had a small campus circus troupe. He caught the “circus bug” and, upon graduation, spent the next three years traveling and performing with various small circuses throughout the US. He had a two-year career at Club Med, teaching circus skills and flying trapeze. Jennings joined the staff of Circus Center in 1999. He teaches flying trapeze and trampoline, serves as the company's master rigger, and performs with Xiao Hong Weng a spectacular hand-to-hand balancing act that has won over audiences throughout the Bay Area.

Flying Trapeze 1

About this class
Icon_ionic-ios-arrow-back Copy 4

Intermediate flying students who are hoping to attain their training goals more quickly will appreciate the faster pace of Flying Trapeze 1. This class has 8 students and 3 instructors like All Levels Flying, but without any beginners the focus can be on developing skills rather than learning basic technique. Students should be able to do a one-handed take off and can be working toward leaving the board unassisted. Prerequisite: Able to do a one-handed take off (or deemed close to that milestone by an instructor)

In this class the emphasis is on developing the skills needed for flying trapeze performance. Students concentrate on advanced tricks, act development, and flying without safety lines. This class is an accelerated course for motivated students who are physically prepared for rigorous training. The smaller class size allows for more focused coaching and time on the apparatus.
