What's the challenge?
To take a trapeze class.
What are you afraid of?
New experiences outside of my comfort zone / heights.
How was the experience?
I never considered myself a person who's afraid of heights, till I was standing at the border of a hanging piece of wood about to jump and swing on a heavy metal bar. The hardest part was when I had to trust the instructor to let myself go to grab the bar before jumping. I was sweating and shaking at that moment. The funny thing is that I wasn't that scared when I made the decision to do trapeze, I had no idea it was going to be that scary. Once you're holding the bar and you let yourself go to start swinging, the experience goes from terrifying to the funnest thing in the world. Having tried trapeze and skydiving I think I kinda know what flying really feels like, and it's amazing!
Thank you CBS for setting this up and being so incredibly awesome! Jay Kernis, you rock. Huge thanks to Suzi and Stuart at Circus Warehouse for being amazing instructors and having so much patience, can't wait to come back for my 2nd official class.
