Anyone can participate in our classes, regardless of previous experience or abilities. Don't worry that you might not be strong enough. During the class you will be taught the skills needed. All you need to bring is your enthusiasm and willingness to learn!
You will be in a harness the entire time you are on the trapeze and there is always a net.
The class will begin with a warm up/introduction on the low trapeze bar. There you will be shown the first position you will learn-the "knee hang". You will then proceed up the ladder to the flying trapeze platform. During the first part of the class you will practice the knee hang position for execution and timing. During the second part of the class, if you are ready, you will attempt a mid air connection, the "catch", with our catcher on the other side of the flying trapeze rig.
Work out type clothes- tights, leggings, sweat pants if they are not too baggy... jeans are usually too tight. We discourage shorts because the backs of your knees will be more comfortable on the bar if your skin is not bare. You should wear clothes in which you can move freely, yet they should not be so loose they get in your way. If you have long hair tie it back. You can wear socks or be barefoot, no shoes. You will have a harness around your waist, so don't worry that your shirt will fly over your head when you are upside down!
There are no age limits for any of our classes other than the Children's classes which are age specific. For any of the other classes we offer-flying trapeze, trampoline, fast track, Chinese Acrobatics, etc… we welcome adults and children. Our classes are not split by age either, so adults and children can take the same class together. It's a great thing to do as a family!!
We have a limited number of spots in all of our classes, so reservations are highly recommended. We would hate to have you show up for a class that is already full. You can call the school anytime to make your reservations, the more notice you have, the more availability we will have. You will need a VISA or MC at the time you make your reservation in order to hold your spot(s).
Classes are ongoing, you can begin at any time. If you buy a discounted class card, good for a series of classes, the validity dates of your card would begin on the date of your first class.

You can take a single class or you can sign up for a series. If you decide after your single class that you want to buy a discounted class card for a series of classes, you can apply that day's class to the card and benefit from the discount the card offers. The card has to be purchased on the same day as the class you took to take advantage of this offer.
There is a difference in cost between various classes, so cards purchased for one class type are not transferrable to other class types.
The platform from where you swing is 25 ft. off the ground, but you are only 15ft above the level of the net.
