Matthew Altbuch, President / Instructor / Professional Catcher
Matthew is from Wellington, FL and is a graduate of Florida State University where he performed with the Florida State Flying High Circus throughout his college career. With the circus, Matthew was very involved performing high wire, flying trapeze, teeter board, adagio, and juggling.  As Lead Rigger, he was responsible for everything from the actual circus tent to all other aerial apparatus.  In 2002, he was recruited By SuperClubs Resorts in Jamaica to run the circus programs and train local staff. He was then brought to Club Med in 2005 and performed in the Dominican Republic. Matthew has worked with many nationalities and is able to instruct circus in multiple languages. He has dedicated his life to bringing the circus arts and shows to communities around the world. Through his company Aerial Trapeze Academy, LLC he has been sponsored to bring flying trapeze through Chile, the x-games Billabong surf contest in Costa Rica as well as implementing circus programs throughout the United States in Summer Camps in Maine, WV, PA, FL, Arkansas, NY, NC, SC, GA, and Maryland. Matthew has been a professional catcher, flyer, and instructor for the flying trapeze and other circus arts for over 18 years. He recently performed in Cirque du Soleil’s show Kooza in Virginia Beach.  When he isn’t performing, he works with kids teaching the art of circus and flying trapeze year round and the international circle community often calls upon his vast expertise.  “Run away with the circus, be home in time for dinner.”
