The countdown is on! There are only 32 days left until breathtaking acrobats, exquisite animals and comical clowns take the Erwin Center stage for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Built To Amaze! on August 20-24.

Ever wondered what it would be like to fly on trapeze, walk the high wire or make people laugh just by clowning around? Lucky for Austinites, there are several hot spots around town that offer fun and eclectic classes that will have you soaring high and flip flopping in no time. Here are a few of the cool classes you’ll find in Austin to give you a taste of what it takes to be a circus performer.

Strap on a harness and prepare for flight at Trapeze Austin.
