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 throughout the year. 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 facilities and organizations to share information and learn about the latest trends in circus. Although we specialize in flying trapeze, we are interested in all types of circus arts.

Circus is our way of life. It is more than just big tops and acrobatics. Circus 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 McCall
instructor & co-founder

Andie discovered her passion for circus arts in her hometown of Las Vegas. In 2014, she decided to take a few circus classes and was captivated by it. She began attending regular classes and within a few months she got an administration job at the circus studio where she was training. She was then promoted to a management position in less than a year. During her two years as the Studio Manager for Trapeze Las Vegas, she focused her efforts towards learning all about flying trapeze and aerial arts. Andie’s time in Vegas also gave her the opportunity to train with Cirque du Soleil acrobats. Over the last few years, Andie has had the privilege to travel to many different circus organizations across North America – from places such as San Francisco Circus Center to Trapeze Experience in the Hamptons, New York – allowing her to explore different organizations and learn from different notable coaches. In 2017, she spent the summer as a flying trapeze and circus coach at Camp Lindenmere in Pennsylvania. Most recently in 2018, she returned for a second summer at Lindenmere. This time she was promoted and in charge of the flying trapeze program. Today Andie is happy to be teaching flying trapeze and sharing her passion for circus arts in Québec.
