Come one, come all and enter the Big Top, where your dreams of running away with the circus can come true! Events & Adventures makes finding unique new experiences stress-free and easy.
Last Saturday, Events & Adventures Vancouver was mesmerized by circus performers at several circus-themed events such as Cirque du Soleil! We booked a private group lesson at Vancouver’s top circus training school—Circus West, where we were entertained and taught circus tricks by our instructors.
We began our course with juggling, poi spinning and object manipulation. And after everyone was warmed up, we got a chance to take a shot at the more complicated tricks that everyone wanted a taste of—trapeze tricks, the aerial silks, giant trampolines, and more! Our group was split in half and while one group got a chance to try out the Olympic-sized trampolines while learning how to bounce, flip, and split, the others twisted their way into the air on the aerial silks. There’s no question that the trapeze was the most popular attraction, we all wanted a chance to take a turn flying on it. With the help of a safety harness, rope, and the strength of our own bodies, we were able to swing on the trapeze while dangling by our ankles at least 20 feet up into the air! Even the shyest members of our group were open to new experiences like this thanks to the friendly atmosphere of our club.
To finish off the night we learned hand to hand acrobatics and tried acro-yoga. Our lessons were taught as a team-building exercise. There’s no better way to bond and connect than to get up close and personal during an acro-yoga session—it was a challenge to figure out how to balance on each other but we left the experience feeling closer than ever. The night was amazing thanks to our teachers who were funny, engaging, and truly gave our group the VIP treatment at the circus, and because of the friendly and open attitudes of our members at Events & Adventures Vancouver.
