Emerald City Trapeze Arts
Seattle is known as the Emerald City because of it’s lush green surroundings, evergreens, national forests and city parks, and it’s mountainous and lake filled terrein. The school’s name references of course the city’s nickname, along with the sparkling city at the end of the yellow brick road in the magical land of Oz. All notes of the bizarre and extreme can come prancing through, and dreams come true.
We will make a trip to this beautiful city to attend this premier circus school for a week long retreat. Scheduled in this trip is attendance to the winter show at the school’s performance venue, sightseeing around the city, and a week of circus classes. This could be the day you fly! Classes will include flying trapeze, stretching and flexibility, and a variety of aerial specialities.
This is a sample schedule, items liable to change until further notice.
Accommodation: Green Tortoise Hostel
