Acrobatics classes serve as an opportunity to learn circus skills for students without the prerequisites to apply for clown colleges of lion apprenticeships. Build up big-top aptitude with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a semiprivate trapeze lesson at Tito Gaona's Flying Trapeze Academy & Flying Fantasy Circus (an $80 value). Semiprivate lessons will take place at the Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill from July 25–August 19 and the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center in Newton Center from August 22–September 20.

The Academy's high-flying instructors hurtle fearlessly through lessons designed to teach trapeze basics in a safe setting. Aspiring aerialists glide into the basics, learning the principals of swinging on a trapeze and some beginning techniques, including how to generate momentum by pumping legs and how to make 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, where 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 since 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.

Customer Reviews

Tito and his family were just wonderful - so skilled at their trade, and so patient. Our teenagers had a really great time - learned a few things and had a completely new experience. Highly recommend this event!
