  • Circus Vargas
    The first thing people notice about Circus Vargas is its big-top tent. Hand-fashioned in Milan from 90,000 square feet of cerulean-blue and sunshine-yellow fabric, the canopy, along with spotlights and saw-dust-covered floors, completed the illusion of an elegant lost era when used in the 2011 film Water for Elephants. The last thing people notice is the absence of animals. They're too busy gaping at a man balancing a 12-step ladder with his mouth. Keeping its marvels strictly human, Circus Vargas builds on a 40-year history by blending classic feats of fearlessness with surprising new tricks. The show features magic tricks along with a skilled hand balancer, a speed juggler, and the wheel of destiny.

    Since 1993, Cirque Dreams' family-friendly variety extravaganzas have called upon a cast of acrobats, strongmen, and daredevils to wring the oohs and aahs out of audiences with tremendous feats of derring-do. During each themed production, more than 100 performers garbed in dazzling outfits twirl high in the air, contort their bodies into impossible shapes, and solve long division problems to earn uproarious applause from the crowd. At Dream Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida, hundreds of contracted artists from around the world develop their skills and prep for Cirque Dreams performances under the direction of Neil Goldberg and his team of choreographers, contortionists, and designers.

  • Trapeze Arts
    Trapeze School New York’s expansion west meant Angelenos no longer had to cross the country to join the circus. At their outdoor studio on the Santa Monica Pier, highly trained instructors teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced maneuvers during classes on the flying trapeze, aerial silks, lyra, trampoline, and Spanish web. All of Trapeze School New York’s countrywide facilities in New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, and LA hold themselves to high safety standards that account for everything from equipment to instructors and safety belts. In an effort to bring their flying-trapeze instruction to surrounding communities regardless of funding, the school also gives lessons through their nonprofit branch of operations.

  • Athletic PlayGround
    In the course of a typical adult life, it's hard to find opportunities to hang upside down. Unless you take classes at Athletic Playground, that is. Completing one of the center's workouts, which one coach refers to as "grown-up recess," may include carrying classmates on your back or doing flips in circus silks. Below, check out the five best things about their playful workouts: They can turn you into a monkey. In one class, dubbed "Monkey Conditioning," students get in touch with their inner primate, re-learning how to move on all fours and clamber over obstacles. You can't lose. There's nothing competitive about these workouts. Everyone is encouraged to do their best and applauded when they master a new skill. You don't need a circus background. The studio welcomes beginners wth open arms. With enough training, their students can reach levels of flexibility and grace normally found in acrobats and pretzels. There's a sense of community. This is especially true in AcroBalance, a class where students experiment with partnered balancing, and climb all over each other to build elaborate human pyramids. Kids can do it, too. The coaches offer parkour, acrobatics, and aerial training for kids as young as five.
