FIRST TIME FLYERS TO OUT OF LINES FLYERS
We are a flying trapeze school set up on the beautiful and secluded island of Koh Tao, Thailand. Our aim is to encourage as many people to experience the truly unique feeling of flying through the air. The flying trapeze is open to ANYONE with zero experience necessary of all ages from 6+. Come try it for an exciting activity or learn to fly like a professional. Your first flying trapeze class will consist of learning to hang upside down with the opportunity to get caught by a catcher! Don’t miss out on such a spectacular experience.
Born and raised in New York City, Clara has been flying through the air since age 10. She took her first swing at Independent Lake Camp and instantly fell in love. While others at school were doing sports or other ordinary after school activities, Clara was rushing off three days a week to fly at Espana Streb Trapeze Academy in New York. She learned to catch at age 13 and hasn't stopped flying / catching / coaching since! She was nominated in 2019 by the international Mestre Trapeze Academy Awards for best female catcher. This woman is one of the strongest people you will ever meet, not only physically but her mental drive to encourage the art of flying trapeze and guide students through each individual process of learning is incomparable. With 15+ years in the industry, and coaching, training and performing at multiple trapezes, she maintains a humble attitude and shows zero superiority amongst her peers. As well as flying trapeze, Clara also holds a degree in Mathematics with a concentration in education. Clara holds current Working With Children accreditation in Australia and CPR. Come hang out with her in Koh Tao!
It is hard not to have fun when flying and learning from Dylan. His laugh is contagious and you'll always feel welcome no matter who you are or what level of flying you are at. Dylan has an incredible amount of experience from professional flying with multiple circuses and coaching at dozens of trapezes all over the world. With 20+ years in the industry and constant desire to improve and learn, his passion for this art is obvious. Coming from a strong rock climbing background, Dylan fell into trapeze with the strength and determination necessary. Dylan and Clara have personally written a flying trapeze syllabus and training manual, and he is always up for a conversation about flying trapeze. His focus is how to make you feel comfortable on the trapeze and especially flying out of lines. Learning to love the net is a big deal, and because he loves the net, he puts in the time and effort to provide exceptional equipment and that perfect bounce. Dylan has an Advanced Riggers Certification and current Working With Children's accreditation in Australia. You haven't seen passion until you've met Dylan, come see for yourself!
