Trapeze Austin’s crew of experienced trapeze and aerial instructors know that the path to sky-high performing begins on the ground. That's why they treat beginners to static aerial arts lessons from the comfort of reliable old terra firma. During these one hour lessons, instructors patiently demonstrate essential trapeze and aerial routines on silks, aerial rope, and the Spanish web, home to a cartoon spider voiced by Antonio Banderas. After students have built up their strength and mastered the nuances of climbing, they can also chase gravity-defying big-top showmanship via exhilarating flying trapeze lessons held at the Stunt Ranch and the SoccerZone. Amidst spacious facilities laden with meticulously maintained circus rigging, instructors guide students through an initial ground lesson to familiarize bodies with swinging mechanics before venturing skyward for a round of closely observed soaring.
