Richie Gaona expertly leads neophyte swingers gradually into the air, beginning with ground-based lessons to introduce basic mechanics and trick gravity into complacence. As the session progresses, students engage in more complex techniques, including the knee-hang catch, a staple maneuver of big-top entertainers that involves crooking limbs over the trapeze while soaring toward a partner.

Ganoa’s Trapeze Workshop

By age 5, Richie Gaona had already learned trapeze and performed with his family, The Flying Gaonas. Over the next 45 years, his art would take him across the globe. During that time he soared with Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey, and as a stunt man his acrobatic skills were featured in films such as Back to the Future II and Van Helsing. Today he hopes to use those experiences, as well as his experience as trainer to Circus of the Stars, to help others defy gravity through trapeze, high wire, trampoline, and other three-ring activities. As he displayed on The Ellen Show, Richie prepares beginners with on-ground instruction before swinging them into maneuvers such as the knee-hang catch. During his flying trapeze classes, students swing on the trapeze while harnessed to safety lines, letting go to perform knee hang catches before trying to get back to the trapeze. Just as he has taught everyone from beginners to A-list celebrities, Richie helps students of all skill levels learn to fly majestically regardless of their previous experience.
