School of Acrobatics & New Circus Arts

One of my dear friends invited me to take a trapeze class.  She found a great deal through LivingSocial, a social media company.  We went to SANCA (School of Acrobatics & New Circus Arts) located just south of Safeco field.  They also have other classes to try such as contortion training, wirewalking, circus arts, geman wheel, etc.  The instructors were immensely friendly and informative.  We started off by doing basic tricks from static trapeze, back flips, etc and at the end if you don’t fall, you can attempt a mid-air connection called “the catch” before the end of a class.    Basically, the last part of the knee hang is letting go of your legs and swinging with the catcher.  I didn’t fall once and I attempted the catch at the end!  I have already learned their amusing short hand language of trapeze: “Listo, Ready, Hep!”  Be warned, trapeze can become an addicting (and exhilarating) habit :)
