Please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes prior to the start of your lesson or class, so that you can check in, warm up, and be ready to fly when your lesson begins.
What to Wear
Wear close fitting, stretchy clothing that covers your knees and shoulders. For tops, as flying trapeze generally involves going upside down, higher necklines are encouraged. For bottoms, yoga-type pants or tights work well. Baggy pants of any sort should be avoided for safety reasons.
If you are interested in using grips we encourage you to use either gymnastics grips without a dowel, men’s gymnastics grips with a dowel, or tape/gauze grips. Women’s dowel grips are not recommended in flying trapeze. You are not required to wear grips, and many of our flyers fly without them. If you have more questions, send email@example.com an email.
Ready to commit and fly with us once a week and get close to your fellow classmates? Come join us for session classes and learn not only tricks, but the ins and outs of putting up and taking down the net, serving your fellow flyers, and assisting people on the board.
Weekend Drop-In Classes
These classes are for flyers ages 7 and above at every level of ability and experience, whether you’ve never tried flying trapeze before or you’re working on taking tricks out of lines. Beginning students will learn how to take off from the platform, perform fundamental trapeze tricks, and begin work on the ‘swing’ – the bread and butter of flying trapeze. More experienced flyers will continue to work on fundamentals and on advancing their trick vocabulary. In the last ½ hour of class, flyers who are ready will be able to take their tricks across to a catcher – one of their coaches, swinging from a second trapeze!
You can find all of our classes on our registration site.
