Becoming an acrobat is a more poised method of defying gravity than riding on an astronaut's back or repeating everything Isaac Newton says in a falsetto voice. Partake in vicarious soaring with today's Groupon: for $18, you get one ticket to the Halloween Circus Show and Dance Party (a $35 value) on Friday, October 28 from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. in the Aerialdrome at Emerald City Trapeze Arts.

Emerald City Trapeze Arts keeps costumed revelers awestruck into the early morning hours with its Halloween Circus Show and Dance Party, an All-Hallows spectacle of aerial derring-do, masked merrymaking, and pulsing dance music. Upon arrival in the Aerialdrome, audiences nestle into cozy enclaves to gawk at the sky-splitting hijinks of the high-flying trapeze act performed by flyers and leotard-clad spider monkeys from Cirque du Soleil and Ringling Bros. shows. Aerialists engage in graceful elevated choreography as live DJs spin sonic webs below and myriad art installations featuring local artists treat eyes to a feast of whimsical imagery. After the nimble aeronauts take a bow, an ebullient dance party unfolds, peopled by a dreamlike company of stilt walkers, magicians, and yowling eyeholed bed sheets. Glaswegian scratch-maestro DJ Peter Worth helps limbs break free from the season’s taxing monster-mashing cycle with an endless supply of freshly hatched beats. Meanwhile, a bevy of festive tipples (not included in today’s deal) hydrates larynxes parched from engagement in heated debates on the ethical implications of ghostbusting.

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.

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!!!
