Being in a circus is like playing a video game—no matter how many times you're attacked by clowns or shot out of a cannon, you never actually die. Get a taste of circus life with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a two-hour Circus Circuit class (a $100 value) with Circus Fund in Del Mar.

Circus Fund is a nonprofit organization that aims to support the superhuman dreams of those who can't afford pricey big-top courses. During the introductory Circus Circuit class, guests get the chance to experience the stomach-churning thrill of the flying trapeze, static trapeze, aerial ring, juggling, and tumbling. After experienced, encouraging instructors guide you through safety basics, they'll teach you how to fly, do tricks, and get a great workout that actualizes fantasies of being shipwrecked on a faraway sunshine island. Each class has 15–25 participants, giving circus neophytes the chance to develop bonds more durable than the Gorilla Glue that holds the doors of the Federal Reserve shut.

Trapeze High created Circus Fund as a nonprofit organization that shares a passion for uncanny physical defiance with all who show a hunger to learn. Rediscover the wings our species lost when Icarus plunged into the sea for not heeding his trapeze teachers, and escape the stoic gravity of every day.

Classes are held on Fridays at 7 p.m. More classes may be added on Mondays and Wednesdays to meet demand.


Circus Fund was featured on Fox 5 San Diego. Yelpers give it a four-star average.

Trapeze High

Trapeze High owners David Ayers and his wife, Lindsay Van Voorhis, refer to their trapeze school as a “tribe.” It’s home to a close-knit community of passionate fliers who work together in order to ensure everybody’s safety and development. At least three instructors operate the trapeze rig during classes for beginners, helping novices climb the ladder, attach their safety lines, get ready for takeoff, and execute their first trick. Exhaustive attention also extends to more advanced students, who can hone complicated techniques and learn how to dodge flying squirrels in courses up to Level 5.

Beyond guaranteeing operational safety, David and Lindsay recognize that maintaining a nurturing, supportive community is the best way to help newcomers overcome their fears of flying through midair. To that end, they invite students to bring along their friends and family to cheer them on. They ban the word can’t from the school premises, although they encourage each student to progress through lessons at his or her own pace according to strength, skills, and desire.

The husband-and-wife team also operates the Circus Fund, an outreach program that provides at-risk youth with the chance to experience the circus arts and form support systems with their peers.

Customer Reviews

Everyone was super friendly and patient with everyone in the group. I went in with absolutely no acrobatic experience and was able to do everything they taught us. Very very fun!

Awesome experienced by all! A family owned business tucked away in a neat Escondido neighborhood. Trapeze High made my son forget his fear of height! Thank you for an experience to be talked about many times over!
