Jason Dixon PlaceNew All Level Static Trapeze Class with Jason Mejias!
Beginning May 16th on Fridays at 4:30pm

Due to popular demand, Jason is adding another All Level Static Trapeze Class. Here is another great opportunity to work on your Trapeze skills!

Jason began his career at the age of 8, when he joined a local Acrobatic Gymnastics team in his hometown of Arecibo, Puerto Rico. He trained and competed nationally and internationally for many years under the men’s pair and four men category. After attending college at The University of Puerto Rico for Business Administration, he decided to retire from competitive acrobatics and move to New York City, where he worked for 4 years in Sales and Retail Operations for Verizon Wireless.
It was during this time in NY when his passion for aerial and acrobatic arts was reawakened. He knew where he really wanted to be and what he was born to do. He left his previous job and in 2007 became a Flying Trapeze Instructor at Trapeze School New York where he brought a fun, yet intense approach to teaching, perfecting skills and adapting the techniques he has learned from his own experiences. Jason is now a part of Aerial Arts NYC, and will be teaching Partner Balancing and Acrobatics, for more information check out the classes section.

Currently, Jason is based out of New York City and is a recurring performer in shows like: “Floating Kabarette” at Galapagos Art Space, “The Loose Caboose Show” at Bowery Poetry club, as well as variety shows at the new Slipper Room and Coney Island. He is also the producer of “The Waterfront Follies” and co-producer of “Boys Night: An All-Male Cirquelesque Revue!
