Lizzy Schwartz

Lizzy Schwartz first found the world of circus when she took a flying trapeze class in Austin Texas in 2006. She immediately fell in love with circus both as an art form and as a workout. She began performing and coaching professionally in 2009, traveling across the U.S., as well as internationally, balancing flying trapeze and various aerial disciplines. A few highlights from her resume include the Flying High Circus at Florida State, the E.C. Flyers at Emerald City Trapeze Arts, Airborne Arts, Circus of Hope, Fly! Boise, the Wonderland Flyers at the Whitehouse, and the Flying Kestrels at McLaren’s Circus in South Africa.

Lizzy is a graduate of the Intensive Professional Program at NECCA, and is thrilled to be returning to teach and help the Flying community here grow.
