One 90-minute session can have an inexperienced attendee flying through the air, doing flips and even being caught midair by Jake Kimball — a “catcher.”
Edgar, a Forest Lake native, has only been to eight practices — but his next step involves completing a back flip off the trapeze bar and into Kimball’s arms as the pair swing like a pendulum through the air.
“People come in with all different ideas of what it’s going to be, all different levels of security, confidence,” Kimball said. “First of all, I tell people what they’re going through is normal. It’s normal to be afraid.”
“But that fear doesn’t have to stand in your way.”
Trapeze not your thing? They teach hula hoop lessons, too.
