In October 2000, we opened our doors to our full time, year round indoor Oakland facility. We have approximately 10,000 sq.ft. of space, filled with a flying trapeze, trampolines, trapezes, hoops, tissues, ropes, a tightwire, tumbletrack trampoline, unicycles and all kinds of juggling equipment. We have a well padded floor which makes tumbling safer to learn.

We are very fortunate to have a whole street block to ourselves, so parking is never a problem, and it is always free! We are a 10 minute walk from the West Oakland BART station, so for those without a car, getting here is easy on public transportation.
We offer classes to adults and children of all ages, no experience is necessary. Classes are taught days, evenings and weekends. During the summer months, we add Circus Day Camp to our schedule, for kids ages 7-14.
In addition to our regular classes, Trapeze Arts is a very popular place to have a party or Corporate event. We host birthday parties for adults (a very popular 50th birthday activity!), and children, we host Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, church groups, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, bachelor, bachelorette and wedding parties, or for no occasion at all other than to just have fun!! Our events are unique and exciting and can be catered to any age or group size.
We have a shop on our premises where we manufacture custom built circus equipment. We have made equipment for Cirque du Soleil, Universoul Circus, Flynn Creek Circus, Jean Ann Ryan Productions, and a number of other professional performing companies, as well as for individuals all over the world.
