Flying Trapeze 1

About

In Flying Trapeze, the participant jumps from a platform holding onto the trapeze bar, using their legs to propel them backwards and forwards in a swinging motion whilst performing various moves on the bar.

Our Flying Trapeze setup is known as a ‘petit volant’ and most of our participants wear a harness belt to ensure safety from falling.

Flying Trapeze is a dynamic and exhilarating aerial skill which provides a full body workout. 

Who it's for

Flying Trapeze 1 is suitable for complete beginners OR those who have completed an Introduction to Aerial course or Circus Arts 1 Aerial. 

As this course uses equipment at height, participants will need to strong and confident enough to support their own body weight – for at least 20 seconds – in order to get the most of the class.

If you're unsure if your strength and fitness is ready for a full term of Flying Trapeze, or you want to learn aerial circus but aren't sure what skill to focus on, have a look at our Introduction to Aerial course.

Our Level 1 courses are based on curriculums that are the same each term, so we don't recommend repeating them. However, you can try a Level 1 course in a different skill.
