Date Night at Emerald City Trapeze Arts
Friday, February 15
8:00pm – 10:00pm
Emerald City Trapeze
2702 6th Ave South
Seattle, WA 98134
206.906.9442
http://www.emeraldcitytrapeze.com

The evening starts as you fly through the air with the greatest of ease! In ground school, you’ll learn the basics of what it takes to safely climb the ladder, grab the bar, (take a breath) and take the plunge. Do a couple of swings, maybe a trick, a big bounce in the net and then it’s off to the mats. Part two of the evening is all about trust and intimacy. Acrobalance combines elements of hand-balancing and partner lifts with endurance and strength. Couples learn acrobatic maneuvers wholly supported by each other’s hands, arms, legs and feet. And don’t be surprised when you end up in a compromising position. It’s kinda like Twister, for adults. Register online.
