Instructables goes Trapezing! (Updated with Videos!)
As a reward for our one millionth registered user, I was given the option to choose how we got to celebrate the occasion. After researching for a little while, a friend mentioned that she'd recently gone to a one day trapeze class. I looked into it, and it seemed like a fun idea. Several people brought cameras and a bunch of videos were taken.
You can see photo's of the event below, sadly the video's haven't been cut together yet. Hopefully I'll be able to add that soon!
Well, I finally managed to get the videos all put together, I hope you enjoy! You can find them on our youtube channel.
However, I'll just embed them here for ease of browsing!
I figured it'd be nice to show off one complete run by everyone. Sadly we didn't get video of everyone getting caught, so I had to make do with what I had.
Now a video of everyone's practice runs. We had to just practice swinging and getting our legs up and over the bar, then jumping back into the net. The guy who does the double flip out of the net at the end of the video is the instructor who's catching us in the following video.
Then we all got a chance to get caught. this is another mashed up video of all of us on our runs to get caught by one of the instructors.
Finally, after we finished the trapezing, we went to the equipment room to have some more fun. There were trampolines, tight rope (that was a couple feet of the ground), plate spinning, super yo-yo's, and a whole ton more. Again, we were all having fun, so video didn't get taken of everything, but I think this mash-up kind of shows off some of what we got to do.
...And that was our trip to Trapeze Arts! Everyone who worked there was great, and we had a blast!
