What You'll Get
Mastering the flying trapeze can pay off when faced with challenges such as performing the uneven bars portion of a job interview. Swing to success with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour Intro to Mixed Aerial Apparatus workshop for two at American Turners Circus (a $40 value).
American Turners Circus' agile aerial coaches guide students through midair twirling exercises on five types of equipment in Intro to Mixed Aerial Apparatus workshops. Students bring along a friend to jointly extinguish gravity's hold during one-hour sessions, which begin by schooling students in basic stretching and conditioning to prepare for introductory aerial techniques. Twirl and fly on up to three types of aerial circus gear, including trapeze, hanging silks, coiled Spanish webs, lyras, and ladders without the avian road rage of traditional flight. Students rehearse midair acrobatics and prove their ability to think while hanging upside down under the vaulted steel-beam ceilings of the Turners' massive gymnasium. By studying the art of circus with the American Turners, visitors keep up a legacy that began in 1849 when their predecessors, the Louisville Turners, began their above-earth performances on Market Street in what would become the city's first gym.
