This session is for first or second time flyers aged 10-18 (at least 4’7″ tall).

The class will go over the fundamentals and basics of flying trapeze, giving young flyers the opportunity to get used to taking off, swinging and landing. Once they feel comfortable with this process we start working on performing a simple trick, with the aim of being able to be caught by a catcher at the end of the class.

Beginner flyers will always wear a harness/safety belt which allows our experienced tutors on the ground to lunge the student safely. After taking off you’ll swing back and forth across the space, and at the caller’s instruction you’ll let go to land in the safety net. It can feel daunting but our tutors will make sure you always feel safe and secure – and the second you leave the platform, you’ll be hooked on the feeling of swinging through the air!

Please note sessions are weather-dependent. If a session does not go ahead due to weather we will refund you the full amount of your ticket. Please ensure we have your correct contact details to pass on last-minute updates!
