The Deal

  • $42 for a two-hour flying-trapeze lesson, including a registration fee (a $22 value; up to an $87 total value)

Flying-trapeze class instructors teach students several basic tricks, including the swing, knee hang, dismount, and back tuck. If a student swings high enough and demonstrates the right timing during a knee hang, a catcher may be able to grab on and swing the student over the safety net using only their hands.

Trapeze School New York

Trapeze School New York’s expansion west meant Angelenos no longer had to cross the country to join the circus. At their outdoor studio on the Santa Monica Pier, highly trained instructors teach beginner, intermediate, and advanced maneuvers during classes on the flying trapeze, aerial silks, lyra, trampoline, and Spanish web. All of Trapeze School New York’s countrywide facilities in New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, and LA hold themselves to high safety standards that account for everything from equipment to instructors and safety belts. In an effort to bring their flying-trapeze instruction to surrounding communities regardless of funding, the school also gives lessons through their nonprofit branch of operations.
