WHAT WE DO

We created Volozio to share our passion for flying trapeze and provide a space for people of all ages and abilities to learn to fly. In an inclusive, creative, and fun atmosphere, we provide weekly flying trapeze lessons. We also host school groups, special events, corporate activities, and day camps for a unique experience.

As part of our involvement with the circus community, we regularly invite local and international instructors to teach and share their expertise in our lessons. We also engage in training and developing future generations of instructors. Periodically, we visit other circus organizations to share information and learn about the latest trends in the industry.

Circus is our way of life. Although we specialize in flying trapeze, we are interested in all types of circus arts. Circus is more than just big tops and acrobatics – it is a vibrant global community of unique and diverse people brought together by an art-form that develops the potential of each individual. We don’t just teach flying trapeze technique, we teach and endorse the values of circus.

WHO WE ARE

René Gasse
instructor & founder

In 1986, during his first season at Club Med, René demonstrated a passion for the flying trapeze. He was asked by the head of the circus program to join their team and travel all over the American zone. After just a few seasons, René became one of the team leaders for the circus program. In 1993 after his last season René moved to New York and introduced the first outdoor flying trapeze on the East Coast at Club Getaway. In 1997, he moved to Montreal to open Trapezium, the first indoor flying trapeze school in Canada. In 2003 René was approached by Cirque du Soleil to join the artist training department team at the creation studios in Montreal, where he stayed for 12 years acquiring and developing expertise of all levels in the field of circus. During the summer of 2015, he had the opportunity to establish a flying trapeze at the iconic Olympic Stadium in Montreal. In 2016, he went back to the United States and spent two years as the Trapeze Manager for Trapeze Las Vegas. Recently, René moved back to Quebec to found Volozio – a circus space with flying trapeze inside the Centre Multisports in Vaudreuil-Dorion, his hometown. Today with over 30 years of experience, what René enjoys most is to guide and share his extensive knowledge with the new generation of circus and flying trapeze enthusiasts from all levels, backgrounds, and cultures.

Andie discovered her passion for circus arts in 2014 in her hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. She started by taking weekly classes at a local circus school. Within a few months she began working there in an administration position and also as a part of the flying trapeze staff. During her two years working as the Studio Manager for Trapeze Las Vegas she focused her efforts towards learning all she could about flying trapeze, aerial arts, and acrobatic rigging. To expand her knowledge in the fields of circus arts and trapeze, Andie has travelled to visit many different circus communities across the United States and Canada to explore and learn from different organizations and coaches. Since 2017, she has spent her summers as a flying trapeze/circus coach at Camp Lindenmere in Pennsylvania to teach and manage their flying trapeze program as their Head of Trapeze. Since obtaining her Canadian Permanent Residency, Andie is happy to call Montreal her home. She is proud to be teaching and sharing her passion for flying trapeze & circus arts with the people of Quebec.
