Flying Trapeze and Aerial Offerings Expand to Meet Increased Demand for Alternative Fitness Programs

Trapeze School New York-DC (TSNY-DC) today announced it is officially open for business at its new location at 1299 New Jersey Avenue, SE, Washington, DC. With a brand new building directly across from the Navy Yard Metro in The Yards community in the Capitol Riverfront, TSNY-DC offers a full roster of flying trapeze and aerial classes for students of all ages and fitness levels.

TSNY-DC opened its first DC-based location in 2009, and has since built a devoted community of students who are excited to embrace different kinds of fitness activities. In addition to people taking a class simply for a few hours of unique fun, many students have discovered the amazing health benefits that come with flying trapeze and the aerial arts. Students achieve new levels of strength, flexibility and fitness and overcome physical, mental and emotional boundaries with every class.

“Our new building and location is a reflection of our amazing community of staff, students and supporters across Washington, DC,” said Brian McVicker, TSNY-DC president and general manager. “It’s incredibly rewarding to see students conquer their fears, embrace new challenges and transform their fitness through flying trapeze and aerial arts. With a new location and expanded class offerings, we can’t wait to welcome even more students to our incredible school.”

“The Washington, DC community continues to amaze us with its support of our school and excitement over the flying trapeze and aerial programs we offer,” said David Brown, co-founder and chief executive officer, Trapeze School World Corporation. “We are excited to expand the school’s presence and continue to bring the magic of flying trapeze and aerial arts to the region.”

TSNY-DC offers all-levels flying trapeze classes seven days a week, where first time beginner students can learn side by side with more experienced students, and everyone progresses at their own pace. During the spring and summer months, TSNY-DC will also operate an on-site outdoor flying trapeze rig, providing even more opportunities to enjoy flying trapeze in the great outdoors.

In addition to flying trapeze, TSNY-DC offers an aerial arts program where students can experience beautiful new kinds of movement using variety of apparatus. Aerial classes include aerial fabric (silks), aerial hoop (lyra), static trapeze, Spanish web, acrobatic partner balancing, and trampoline. The school also offers juggling and conditioning classes.

A grand opening celebration will take place later this winter; details will be shared closer to the event. For the latest news and class updates, follow TSNY-DC on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
