The dedicated athletes at Trapeze School New York teach big-top antics with Big Apple panache among the glittering lights of the Santa Monica pier. In the flying-trapeze class, students bound off a 23-foot platform to perform simple cirque-inspired tricks, such as the classic knee-hang, while supported by modern equipment. Trainers dole out tips during downtime as well as provide exercises to practice at home for future sessions or wedding entrances. The one-hour silks class employs fabric to twist bodies into striking silhouettes while simultaneously bettering balance and posture. Bouncing on a high-powered trampoline, tyros in trampoline lessons focus on heightening spatial sense and building muscle through exercises such as a belt-assisted back flip.
Trapeze School instructors foster a concentrated, supportive environment, so newcomers can step out of comfort zones without being scared, intimidated, or consumed by what flavor of birthday cake to have next year. A packed schedule ensures class sizes are kept small; trapeze class has a max of 10 students, whereas silks and trampoline have a max of four.
