Skyline Trapeze Brings Aerial Arts to One of the Largest Untapped Cities in the Country
Some businesses are born from passion, others from need… Skyline Trapeze in Dallas, Texas, rose from a smooth combination of both.
After Donovan Chandler found himself travelling to Austin for training, he realized exactly how many people were in his position?travelling across the state to take part in the art of aerial trapeze. He decided that, as one of the largest metro areas in the country, it seemed only fitting that Dallas should have its own flying trapeze school and training center.
In addition to professional students, Chandler tells us that they see quite a lot of recreational students, as well. “Circus arts in general have skyrocketed since that time because the general public has discovered there are far more enjoyable ways to get into shape than staring at a treadmill,” he details. “Not only has the fitness aspect captured people’s attention, but the novelty of explaining to someone at a dinner party that you are a recreational flying trapeze artist has really captivated the country!” He laughs, adding, “That one line will literally steal the show at any gathering!”
To ensure safety, Skyline has a mass of professionals on-staff at all times. “You should feel very safe,” Chandler affirms. “Not only do we have an impeccable track record (nothing more than stubbed toes), we also spend a considerable amount of time and money making sure our equipment is beyond reproach.” Since they were the first flying trapeze school in North Texas, they have been able to attract some of the best individuals in varied walks of life. “We currently have three engineers, a medical student, an EMT (in training), a professional skydiver, and an experienced circus rigger all working and teaching classes,” Chandler details. “Between the lot of us, we know a thing or two about keeping people safe!”
