Have you ever had dreams you could fly? Yeah, us too.
Revolution's basic class structure is a 2 hour flying trapeze session for up to 10 students. Open level classes welcome all flyers, from first timers to visiting professionals.
Class size is limited to 8-10 students depending on class length. Every class is staffed with a minimum of three coaches who will work the pedestal board (where you takeoff), spotting lines (where we keep you safe from) and catching (where we catch you and make everyone look like a star) positions. All three coaches will provide insight and instruction during the class and until the catching portion of class there will always be a coach free to provide additional feedback and coaching to those students waiting for their next turn.
At the beginning of each class, new students will have “ground school” where they will go over what they will be learning that day. Returning students get a review of the skills they are working on and what they want to focus on during that class. Once we've talked through everything the students need to know, we put safety belts on everyone and dive right into flying! All beginner students wear safety lines while flying and a coach assists them with their landing in the net. More advanced students may be approved by our coaches to perform skills without safety lines (but always with the net! This isn't Hollywood after all).
Students take turns on the trapeze and receive personalised instruction on both the board as they learn to take off and while they are flying and executing their new skills. During class, students can expect anywhere from 5-10 turns before catching, depending on the size of class, and then two turns during the catching portion of class. We also provide additional coaching between turns both on the ground or on our low "practice" bar to maximize every student's progress during class. We practice skills for about 90 minutes, and then spend the last half hour of class catching. During catching, the students who have mastered a skill are caught in mid-air by one of our staff catchers!
At the end of class, flyers will have a chance to talk with their coaches about their class and what to expect in future classes. They may also get tips on things they can work on both in and out of class to maximize their flying potential.

I liked your [Stretch & Strengthen] class. Next time I was in yoga, I found myself able to do splits on both sides for the first time in years.
