What is a bar-to-bar rig
It is a type of flying trapeze rig where instead of having a catcher there is only another swinging fly bar
Whats a flying trapeze rig? Ah ok, it’s kind of like the big swing that you see in circuses. Flying trapeze has become a popular hobby, with hundreds of flying trapeze rigs situated all over the world.
If you really like being caught by someone soft and cuddly, or if you are a catcher, we will offer occasional conventional classes with a catcher - our rig will be easily reconfigurable to support this,
Because it’s different - they are popular in France, but not so much elsewhere
It’s traditional! - Flying trapeze was invented by Jules Leotard and he used bar-bar
You can do a catch every go :-) - if you want to - you don’t have to wait till the end for the ‘catch’ rounds
You can do multiple tricks in one go - if you have the repertoire and stamina, just keep adding tricks on!
More time in the air - everyone spends the entire session on the platforms - no more down to the ground and back up the ladder.
Just you in the air - You don’t have to rely on the skills of the catcher
Do I have to be strong or flexible?
Not particularly, so long as you can hang by your arms for 10 seconds or so at a time you will be able to fly.
Is It safe?
Absolutely! You are required to wear a safety harness with our instructor manning your safety lines, until you are ready to progress, and of course we have a big, soft net to land in.
What Should I wear?
Something comfortable that you can move in. Nothing dangling please
We look forward to seeing you flying!
