Aerial Trapeze

Aerial Trapeze Class is offered with mixed groups, meaning that all levels of experience and proficiency are welcome to join. 
In this class, you will learn the original form of circus arts: Trapeze Bar.
The static trapeze is a stationary bar used for a variety of seated, standing, balancing and hanging poses, and transitions. The static trapeze has little swing to it, so the student uses their own body to create momentum for more dynamic skills.

Tuition: $291 per semester.
