In the early 1930s, George Nissen observed trapeze circus artists performing tricks when bouncing off the safety net. He made the first modern trampoline in his garage to reproduce this on a smaller scale and used it to help with his diving and tumbling activities. Today, trampolining is an Olympic sport as well as an exciting piece of circus apparatus. Used in conjunction with a wall, trampoline artists are able to use the trampoline bounce to propel themselves up the wall creating the illusion of defying gravity. Our circus agency offers highly trained trampoline artists for hire, many of whom competed in the sport at an international level before entering the world of circus.
