The Levis JCC Presents: Trapeze-Experience West Palm Beach
After 12 years spent teaching and performing the art of trapeze, including a stint with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, aerial wizard Peter Gold founded The Levis JCC Presents: Trapeze-Experience West Palm Beach in 1997 to share the gift of flight with others. At several schools located throughout the country, Peter and his teams of instructors have helped tens of thousands of people sweep and soar—all without a single student getting injured or hurtling into deep space. Suited to all experience levels, classes range from beginner-friendly introductions that focus on the basics to intensive training that helps aspiring acrobats gain the skills needed to perform professionally.
