High Flying

Trapeze anyone?  Really, like the kind in the circus.  Just a stones throw away from my house is a real honest to goodness trapeze school.  Sometimes when I have driven by they are out swinging away.     The founder Dylan Phillips spent the last eleven years traveling all over the world performing and with his partner Brian Lazarus decided to start -

Trapeze U - An Institute of 'Higher' Learning
Check out their website here.

They have a variety of classes that range from:
$20 - Fly By (a climb up the ladder and one chance to fly) to $65 - Trapeze 101 (2 hour class)

If the shot was panned out a bit more you could almost see my house from here!

Not everyone has a trapeze school in their if you are ever in the area be sure to let me know, cause I want to come watch (watch being the operative word).

Oh, and if that's not enough you can also take a juggling class! (big red nose not included)



  1. Too cool! Back in my college days I went to FSU when they had the FSU Flying High circus and you could take a PE credit by taking a circus class. I tried it, but couldn't get the juggling down (which was required) by the drop/add, so I ended up dropping the class.

  2. That looks cool...but there are not enough drugs, alcohol or money to get me up there! LOL! But I would love to watch others try it and live vicariously through them.

  3. How fun to watch this action. Is it something you aspire to do? I would never be "up" for anything this adventurous. But it would be so much fun to watch. Sunshine Summer Smiles...

  4. Oh my goodness, that's hysterical. I'm afraid of heights so I'd definitely just be a "watcher". We have the only parachuting school in our backyard (just beyond the cornfield and cows) and we enjoy watching the "jumpers" all year round. A few have landed slightly off course in our back yard and I've given the jumpers and their parachutes rides back to the airport. It's fun to watch but I'd never jump out of a perfectly good airplane (although my husband and brother jumped a couple of years ago and loved it!).
