Learn to Fly! @ Regents Park (until September)

May 3, 2012toSeptember 30, 2012
Anyone can come and learn to fly in one of our two hour classes, our youngest students are 8, our oldest (so far) 78! Students start with a warm up then move on to practice a simple trick on our low bar. They then attempt the trick on the Flying Trapeze and towards the end of the class get caught by a catcher on a separate swinging bar. Most of our classes are run on a one-off basis, the more classes you take the more advanced tricks you can perform! If you truly are addicted to flying you may be able to join our weekly intermediate class!
We will be based in Regents Park from April to September 2012, with our second trapeze touring other London Parks. Click here for directions to our Regents Park location.
Classes and courses can be booked approximately 1 month before the class date. If you would like to be updated when new classes/courses go on sale, please sign up to our mailing list.
The Gorilla Circus Flying Trapeze School was launched in summer 2009 with the aim of bringing flying trapeze classes to ordinary members of the public. The school is one of only two flying trapezes in the UK that are open to the general public, and the only circus school in London that takes place outside.
The school’s first summer was a great success with our full sized flying trapeze touring several London parks from June to September. Hundreds of curious Londoners came for classes and a large number returned to improve their skills and progress to an intermediate level. Our daily ‘Try’n fly’ sessions offering a single swing for the experience and adrenaline rush were also very popular.
The Flying Trapeze School was featured in national media with appearances on the BBC, ITN and Channel Five. The school also received positive reviews from Time Out magasine and local newspapers.
This year the school will be returning to London’s parks and open spaces from May to September, visiting locations including Regent’s Park and The Roundhouse in Camden. The schedule will include ‘Try ‘n’ Fly’ tasters offering a single swing, and longer lessons where participants will learn a trick and have the chance to go for a catch. Gorilla Circus is also working with local authorities to run subsidised workshops for young Londoners.
