No circus is complete without a trapeze, and the Great Circus has the amazing Swinging Trapeze. Watch as the unbelievable swinging trapeze artist spreads her wings, soaring from the very top of the tent like a flying ballerina. The Russian Bar act will also leave circus-goers gasping in disbelief as they take acrobatics to the next level. Witness their exceptional strength, agility and dexterity as they perform tricks on a single narrow bar with perfect balance. Equally impressive is the Rola Rola spectacle. With perfect precision, see the balancing artist rise to great heights while maintaining his balance on a difficult combination of objects.

Aerial Performance at Great Circus of Europe

Watch as the pair take their relationship to a whole new level – literally – as they dance and twirl in a romantic embrace way up high. The 7-Person Super Springboard act will definitely capture your attention with their mind-blowing stunts.
