Acrobatics classes serve as an opportunity to learn circus skills without first having to attend clown college or do lion apprenticeships. Build up big-top aptitude with today’s Groupon to Tito Gaona’s Flying Trapeze Academy. Choose between the following options:

  • For $40, you get a semiprivate trapeze lesson for one in a class of 5–20 (an $80 value).
  • For $70, you get a semiprivate trapeze lesson for two in a class of 5–20 (a $160 value).

The Academy’s high-flying instructors teach trapeze novices to hurtle fearlessly between handholds in lessons designed to teach trapeze basics in a safe setting. Aspiring aerialists glide solo or in pairs through basic maneuvers, learning the principals of swinging on a trapeze, generating momentum by pumping legs, and making nearby peacocks jealous by flying. After gaining experience and aptitude, students advance to more difficult tricks, alternating handholds and body positions. In a test of confidence and endurance, teachers mount the swings with trainees to perform the catch and return, in which the student releases hold of their own bar to grab the hands of another performer, while a third acrobat catches all falling pocket change.

The Academy puts between 5 and 20 students through aerial paces and exercises with the 1.5-hour class. Lessons double as an effective workout, as the trapeze engages muscles throughout the body, building arm strength from hanging, toning cores while swinging, and bulking up diaphragms by shouting “Hup!” after every release.

I bought this as a gift for my two teenaged daughters and they had a BLAST! I was especially grateful for how accommodating they were with my children's busy schedules. They treated them with respect and gave them an experience they will never forget! I highly recommend!!
