NECCA hosts flying trapeze recital, Flight Night

BRATTLEBORO — On Friday, May 26, at 7 p.m., New England Center for Circus Arts (NECCA) offers the chance to fly into spring with a retro 1980s Neon Flying Trapeze student and staff showcase. Admission for this performance is by donation.

The fun continues with a Flight Night taster trapeze class for audience members to feel the joys of flying through the air with the greatest of ease. With $10 for one swing, or $20 for 3 swings, you will learn how to climb the ladder and take off on the trapeze bar from the platform.

For the more daring, you can learn to hang from your knees and even do a back flip safely into their giant bouncy net - all while wearing a safety line, of course. Bring your kids, your friends, and your neighbors because this event is for everyone (ages five and older for Flight Night), and no experience is necessary.

The student showcase takes place from 7 to 7:45 p.m., followed by the staff show, with Flight Night cleared for takeoff at 8 p.m. Reservation is required for Flight Night, register at
