Running away with the circus was never on my bucket list as a kid. I was more likely to be searching through the hedgerows for a horse-drawn gypsy caravan.
But a trapeze does conjure up some fantasy for me. And this living room trapeze—in Brooklyn—is just the thing to make kids exclaim, ‘yippee!’ and give adults the chance to live out some tucked away dream.
If you have a trapeze fantasy, there is a circus school (!) in Brattleboro, Vermont, that is run by two sisters who are alums of Cirque de Soleil. I have a friend who is learning the flying trapeze who has lots of good things to say about it!
