If the idea of jumping off a 23-foot-high platform has you shaking in your safety belt, skip trapeze and learn another skill, such as trampoline, juggling, or acrobatic partner-balancing. Trapeze School New York’s local branch offers kids a special one-day circus experience as well as summer camps, culminating in performances for proud parents.
