With the exception of that one remarkably talented walrus, acrobats tend to be fairly trim. Today's Groupon lets you in on their fitness secret with a two-hour trapeze class at Emerald City Trapeze Arts for $30 (up to a $70 value). Or you may also buy a ticket to the Halloween Circus Show and Dance Party (a $35 value) on Saturday, October 30 for $18.

Few things in this life outside of giant dads can provide adults with the sky-splitting thrill of being flung through the air, and the flying trapeze is one of those things. Whether you've been trapezing since birth or are brand-new to the ancient aerial craft, Emerald City's instructors will welcome you with dependably sturdy arms with a two-hour trapeze class. Your expertly guided and completely safe trapeze adventure begins with a succinct stretching session before you develop your balancing skills on a practice bar. From there, you'll add the basics of proper take-offs, 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 mid-air—proving to your doubting third-grade gym teacher that you can, in fact, trapeze with ease. Classes are scheduled every day of the week and weekend.

If you're not ready to leap into the air, aspiring aerialists (21 and older) can revel in fresh inspiration by soaring vicariously through the fantastical acrobatics of the Halloween Circus Show and Dance Party, which takes place on the eve of All Hallow's Eve. Upon arriving at the surreally castellated Aerialdrome at 9 p.m., you'll get to show off your ice queen, vampire, or furious badger costume on the mezzanine while mingling among installations from local artists. But save your best oohs and ahs for the high-flying trapeze act, featuring gravity scofflaws from Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Bros. After the show, you'll get to join the vaunted company of dancing bears and mustachioed iron women for some ground-based acrobatics on the dance floor while Glasgow's DJ Peter Worth spins bewitching beats worthy of the Weird Sisters until 4 a.m. Libations and intoxicating witches’ brews will flow freely from their cauldrons, and a motley assembly of buffoons, stilt walkers, magicians, and flying madams will color the crowd at the voluptuous masquerade. Emerald City Trapeze Arts' bazaar of the bizarre and its epic spectacle will give Groupon customers a nice change of pace from the season's typical Monster Mashes and awkward small talk with Frankenstein.

21+ for the Halloween Circus Show and Dance Party. New clients only and must be at least six years old for trapeze classes.

  • The live music, food, and a pleasing atmosphere bring together a safe and unique experience. With everyday people looking for something different to do, the class was exhilarating to watch and learn from. – Seattlest
  • The people who work here are well trained, polite, and professional. At no point did I feel out of shape, insecure, or silly about being so-the-opposite of all of them. – Katy H., Yelp

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.

Cheryl · November 24, 2015
They are amazing teachers, they were able to pick one or two small things to correct each time to get you to where you felt very comfortable. I feel that at any level you would leave feeling good about what you can do as well as how far you can come in one day. I really enjoyed myself and adored the instructors!!!
