For $18, today's deal gets you one ticket to a Mardi Gras party thrown by Emerald City Trapeze (a $35 value), on Friday, March 11 from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. at the Aerialdrome, located on Sixth Avenue.
The high-flying performers of Emerald City Trapeze will throw a humdinger of a hootenanny to celebrate Mardi Gras. Watch as veteran trapeze masters, some of whom have performed for Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Brothers, twist and twirl on aerial silks, slide and shimmy on Chinese poles, stretch and spin on a corde lisse, and throw strings of brightly colored beads while wearing platform shoes. Along with a celebratory circus show, the party's also playing host to DJ Peter Worth, whose house music will blast party bashers into a full-fledged frenzy of foot stomping. Since a Mardi Gras jamboree without debauchery and beads is nothing more than another night binging on French pastries, Emerald City Trapeze will ratchet up the revelry by encouraging guests to come in masks, and by hanging from the balconies, tossing beads to moxie-loaded merrymakers who expose the most spirited pair of suspenders.
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.
