Welcome to Get A Grip Trapeze!

Come fly at Chicago’s only Flying Trapeze rig! Looking for something fun to do in Chicago? We’ve got you covered. Join us for circus arts classes where YOU can try what you’ve seen in the circus, el circo, or Cirque du Soleil shows. Flying Trapeze is just the beginning! We’re a circus school that offers silks, aerial sling, lyra, static trapeze, and trampoline classes. No experience needed. We accept all ages, but recommend ages 6-100.

Join us in our winter home inside the Broadway Armory. What a great way to stay in shape and play during the winter!

Get A Grip Trapeze is also one of Chicago’s most unique party venues. We host memorable events for birthdays, corporate outings, bachelorettes, team building and more.
