Boris Verkhovsky on the origin of Trampoline Wall Acts

It started in Vegas.

Cirque du Soleil Mystère.

YES many Gyms had trampolines beside walls.  Taiso Saskatoon, for example.

But it was Cirque who first popularized and professionalized trampoline wall acts.  Each of their shows evolved variations of the act.

Ludi went on to Cirque du Soleil and I personally can’t recall any female acrobat with more impressive physical ability.

Currently she’s performing with husband Nicolas Besnard, in act named Duo MainTenanT.
