What is Trapeze?
The Trapeze apparatus consists of a short horizontal metal or wooden bar, hung from either end with rope. Trapeze acts may be static, spinning (rigged from a single point), swinging or flying, and may be performed solo, double, triple or as a group act. It is officially the last performance of the circus.
Static Trapeze involves performing a wide range of moves around the bar and ropes, including balances, drops and hangs.
What to wear
Wear comfy, stretchy clothing that does not restrict your movement. Close fitting items are ideal as baggy or flared bottoms and tops can get caught or tangled which can be a hazard to you and others so avoid these.
Backs of knees, elbows, wrists, backs and hips are prone to bumps and bruises when training. Wearing multiple layers helps to reduce this, along with leg warmers, leotards, long socks and gaiters/jazz boots. You also want a top that will cover your midriff without riding up, or that you can tuck in.
Please remove all jewellery and watches, and tie long hair back.
