Jason-Mejias-cita-14-3

Jason began his career at the age of 8, when he joined a local Acrobatic Gymnastics team in his hometown of Arecibo, Puerto Rico. He trained and competed nationally and internationally for many years under the men’s pair and four men category. After attending college at The University of Puerto Rico for Business Administration, he decided to retire from competitive acrobatics and move to New York City, where he worked for 4 years in Sales and Retail Operations for Verizon Wireless.

It was during this time in NY when his passion for aerial and acrobatic arts was reawakened. He knew where he really wanted to be and what he was born to do. He left his previous job and in 2007 became a Flying Trapeze Instructor at Trapeze School New York where he brought a fun, yet intense approach to teaching, perfecting skills and adapting the techniques he has learned from his own experiences. Jason has joined the Circus Warehouse team as their Aerial Rope instructor.

In the Fall of 2012 Jason joined forces with Burlesque and Aerial sensation Harvest Moon, they perform a Double Trapeze routine and go by the name of Aero Trapeze. They have already been seen at The New York Burlesque Festival where the act was described as “a must-see!” by burlesquebeat.com in 2013.

Currently, Jason is based out of New York City and is a recurring performer in shows like: “Floating Kabarette” at Galapagos Art Space, “The Loose Caboose Show”, as well as variety shows at the new Slipper Room, Coney Island, and The Bridges in DUMBO. He has also produced shows like “The Waterfront Follies”, “Bawdville!”, “DELIRIO” and is co-producer of “Boys Night: An All-Male Cirquelesque Revue!
