Classes

We are so happy to be open again! We have implemented a number of changes in the building and in our class structure towards our efforts to do all we can to safely offer classes and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please make sure to read our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures document which outlines our protocols for reopening.

Single classes are available again! If one wants to come for a single class, reservations will be required and spots can be booked up to two weeks in advance. Students can take a single class in Flying Trapeze, Contortion, Trampoline and Beginner level Aerial classes, space permitting. Flying Trapeze single class is $50 and Aerial/Trampoline/Contortion single class is $45. A $15 per spot non-refundable deposit will be required at the time of the reservation.

Call 510-419-0700 or email trapezearts@gmail.com to reserve your spot now!

Flying Trapeze

Flying Trapeze class

Fly through the air with the greatest of ease... just like you see in the circus. During the first class, participants learn the basics. You'll hang by your knees on a stationary bar, then proceed up the ladder to the flying trapeze! After practicing a knee hang position for execution and timing, you may even be ready by the end of the class to attempt a catch with our catcher... and this is just the beginning!

We are excited to say that we are catching again!

- Our staff will be disinfecting the ladder, uprights, safety belts, seating area, and trapeze bars between each class.
- We will not be lending out the school’s grips (palm guards) to students. Gauze grips and leather grips are available for purchase.
- As the manufacturer of the safety belts used at our school and by most Circus schools and Club Med Resorts, we will continue to provide safety belts and they will be disinfected between classes. However, if you prefer to purchase your own belt, we’d be happy to make one for you!!

Aerial Arts

Aerial classes

All Aerial - Adults, Kids (7-14 years), and Teens (12-18 years.)

All Aerial classes offer tissue, static trapeze, hoop, and rope.

Advanced Tissue

Climbing, wrapping and dropping on an aerial silk - skills are similar to those used on a rope but even more challenging.

If students have their own apparatus (tissue, hoop, trapeze), they are welcome to bring it and use it for their class. Please note that student’s personal apparatus cannot be left at the school between classes.

- Please do not share rosin with other students or instructors. We encourage you to bring your own. If you do not have any, we have it available for purchase, so please bring a container (sock, baggy, etc.) in which to put it.
- Each student will have a designated area in which to sit and put their belongings.
- At the end of each Aerial class, students will be required to wipe down the mats and any equipment they used. The coach will spray the mats and equipment, and then the student will wipe them down. This method is being used in order to limit the number of people that touch the spray bottle cleaner.
- Aerial silks will be washed at frequent intervals.
