After Dumbo retired, his ink-stamped memoirs left fans wondering whether his ability to fly stemmed from his ears, his anti-gravity vest, or his capacity for love. Lend your ears and limber limbs to the tented arts with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get admittance to a 60-minute Intro to Circus Arts Class (a $27 value) at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, located in Germantown.
The Philadelphia School of Circus Arts offers a wholly inimitable experience featuring acrobatic engagement with the big top’s most artistic and athletically invigorating equipment. In the Groupon-exclusive, 60-minute Intro to Circus Arts class, the school’s seasoned instructors lead students through the ups, downs, and upside-downs of disciplines including juggling, fabric performance, trapeze tight-wire, and plate spinning. Active, free-spirited, and safe, the class pushes participants through light physical challenges, intermediate tests of focus, and never-ending wrestling matches against Father Gravity. Beginning on January 15, sessions run from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays and are open to all levels of talent and curiosity.
