About the School - What People Have to Say About Us

Here's a sampling of what our former and current students are saying about their experience at the school. If you'd like to send us a testimonial, click here.

Some of our students have expressed their feelings about flying in longer form. Read their stories in our Flyer's Life section.

We know that trapeze offers our students huge physical, mental and spiritual benefits, but sometimes even we're pleasantly surprised at how many ways those benefits apply in real life. One of our students, a triathlete, flew with us to strengthen the focus she would need to complete an Ironman race. Ironman + trapeze...who would've thought? After successfully completing the race, she sent us a link to her story. Read it here.


We'd like to share some experiences from our other schools:


"[The catcher] rises up to you and all of a sudden, he's there. He grabs you, you swing out, and your spirit just soars! [My son & I] order our week around when we left class versus how many days before we can come back again."

- Bob Edgett, student & former Marine


"Your slogan, "forget fear, worry about the addiction" is all too true. I had my first flight a couple of days ago and I can't even begin to describe how much I enjoyed it. Days later I am still thinking about my experience. Flying through the air on the trapeze was both breathtaking and exhilarating. It was like nothing I have ever done before and one of the biggest adrenaline rushes of my life. I wanted to thank Jonathan and the rest of the staff for their patience and positive attitude. They really helped me conquer my fear and now I can't wait to come back and master my catch. Thanks again for the wonderful experience! "

- Erica Sanginiti


"I wanted to thank you and your crew for bringing the trapeze to New York and making it so easily accessible. It was - to me - a microcosm of life - just what I experience when faced with a challenge.

It usually takes me a long, long, time to gain such insight...learning when I hesitate just what the consequences may be, how when my energy has been expended in other areas, I may not have the energy necessary to accomplish something I strongly desire, how important it can be to listen and just let go ...

Thank you, thank you, thank you ....It was just perfect!"

- Emily Singhota


"What does one do on a 52nd bithday? How about your first knee hang catch! Believe me, it ranks right up there with the bigger thrills of your life. The staff is great, well-trained, patient, and very upbeat. I can't think of a more exciting and fun thing to do to celebrate. If you're looking for that special present, think about giving someone the thrill of flying! Thanks to the staff for a wonderful birhday."

- Nora Anderson


"Last night was my first lesson and you bet I'm coming back for more. It's just a matter of time. The instructors were so helpful and everyone had a great sense of humor that kept things fun and lively. Fix, Fred, and Jonathon were a blast to be with. Jonathon, thanks for the catches and the mention in this morning's Daily! Icing on the cake.

I'm recommending this to all my friends in New York and Baltimore! Thanks again!"

- Cindy Hwang


"Healthy risk-taking is a good thing. Engaging in activities where you can feel accomplished and overcome a fear...can only help you in other domains of your life."
