Up, Up and Away

File this one under Things That This Blogger Will Tell You About But Is Too Damn Scared To Do Herself:

The Trapeze School of New York specializes in multi-level classes in the aerial arts, i.e. flying trapeze, static trapeze (where the bars and ropes don’t sway), trampolines, silks (where students practice acrobatics dangling on a piece of silk), and lyra (in which one performs all the same drops, hangs and movements that a trapeze artist does on a hoop–H-O-O-P).

All fear aside, this looks like a lot of fun–and relatively safe fun–for our non-acrophobic friends. The classes cost between $40 and $70 and last one hour, with a limit of ten students per session. (Buy a block and you’ll get a discount.)  During the winter, instruction is indoor but outdoor classes are added in the warmer months.

And yeah, kids can do it, too. The minimum age is only six!
