Becoming an acrobat is a more poised method of defying gravity than riding on an astronaut's back or repeating everything Isaac Newton says in a falsetto voice. Soar stylishly with this Groupon.

Emerald City Trapeze Arts' instructors welcome aerial enthusiasts of all levels to experience the sky-splitting thrill of the flying trapeze. Expertly guided and safe trapeze adventures begin with a brief stretching session before pupils develop balancing skills on a practice bar. From there, the basics of proper takeoffs, swinging, and body positioning are added to students' acrobatic tool belts. Learners acquire skills at their own paces and obtain new techniques with ample demonstrations by Emerald City's circus-grade instructors. When ready, class-goers are able to swing through the outdoor arena and catch their teacher's hands in midair—proving to formerly doubting third-grade gym teachers that they can, in fact, trapeze with ease.
Emerald City Trapeze Arts
Onlookers gasp as the graceful figure tumbles to earth in a slow-motion plunge. Her strong legs twist and spin down a billowing swath of deep-red fabric like a spider expanding its web. It is awe rather than fear, however, that draws the crowd's gasps, as the elegant descent is performed as a demonstration by one of Emerald City Trapeze Arts’ skilled instructors during a silks class. A dedication to teaching students of all ages and abilities the skills necessary to capture both the beauty and athleticism of the circus arts is the studio's main mission, upheld by a cadre of circus-grade instructors and a friendly staff.
Below the soaring ceiling of exposed old-growth beams of Seattle’s indoor venue or amid the warm breezes of Maui’s outdoor trapeze, students leap and balance on well-maintained circus apparatuses as their instructors correct their form and ensure their safety. The staff welcomes aerial enthusiasts to experience the sky-splitting thrills of all manner of circus specialty, from the flying trapeze to acrobalance to aerial hoop performed on the top of an elephant's stiletto. Along with high-flying classes, Emerald City Trapeze Arts’ crew celebrates the circus arts via dances and parties held within the whimsical-yet-rustic Seattle venue, from merriment-packed Halloween festivities to energetic performances by staff and students.
