With the exception of that one remarkably talented walrus, acrobats tend to be fairly trim. Exercise aerially with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a two-hour trapeze class at Emerald City Trapeze Arts (up to a $70 value).
Emerald City's instructors welcome aerial-enthusiasts of all levels to experience the sky-splitting thrill of the flying trapeze. Your expertly guided and safe trapeze adventure begins with a succinct stretching session before you develop your balancing skills on a practice bar. From there, you add the basics of proper takeoffs, swinging, and body positioning to your acrobatic tool belt. Learn at your own pace and obtain new techniques with ample demonstrations by the circus-grade instructors. When you're ready, you'll be able to leap through the air and catch their hands in midair—proving to your doubting third-grade gym teacher that you can in fact trapeze with ease.
Engage in an energizing physical workout, join the vaunted company of dancing bears and mustachioed iron-women, and let your inner circus star take literal flight with today's Groupon. With classes scheduled every day of the week, you can fly in on your own time and experience the blissful perspective of someone no longer glued to the surly bonds of earth.

Emerald City Trapeze Arts
Once upon a time, the Canal Boiler Works building in SODO housed Seattle's blacksmiths, who spent their days harnessing the power of fire and steel. Today, the building is still around, but its tenants tap into a different kind of power. Beneath a wood-beam ceiling, the aerialists of Emerald City Trapeze Arts fly through a 20,000 square foot studio, learning classic circus and trapeze skills from instructors with decades of experience. During aerial arts classes, students engage with silks, hoops, and ropes suspended in midair, mastering artful, fluid motions while simultaneously boosting their strength and coordination. Trapeze classes take things even higher; the studio's full-sized trapeze rig towers 30 feet in the air, recreating the thrills of big-top flips for beginners and seasoned aerialists alike. The space also invites students to try their hands at several other classic apparatus, including Trampoline and Cyr Wheel.
Although the air is their natural habitat, Emerald City Trapeze Arts' instructors teach earthbound classes, as well. Tumbling classes unlock youngsters' inner acrobats with cartwheels and somersaults, while pole fitness classes introduce the tricks and transitions needed to develop a full dance routine.
