Run Away to the Circus: Trapeze Class

Have you ever threatened to run away to the circus?  Or felt like you were living in a circus?  Now is your chance to do circus for real! Prof. Shaner is gathering a group of GTS adventurers for a flying trapeze class at the Trapeze School New York.  If you are interested in joining the fun, please email her by 14 March so that we can find a class that works for most schedules.  Cost of a 2 hour class ranges from $47-$57, depending on the day.  There are no strength or flexibility requirements to take the class.  No experience with acrobatics, or gymnastics is necessary.  You only need a sense of adventure and the ability to follow directions!
