Looking for an exhilarating way to exercise?

Circus of Hope teaches trapeze classes out in Southwest Travis County. Classes are open to the general public, and students say the benefits go far beyond physical health.

"This is the scariest thing I've ever done. It helps me get over all my fears,” said Jessica Woksow, Circus of Hope student. “I've done this, so it makes me think I can do anything else."

Circus of Hope also offers trapeze classes to special needs and at-risk children. Kids can also learn juggling, hooping, tight wire and unicycle.
