Make them trapeze artists

How many towns have a circus school? Asheville’s lucky enough to boast Toy Boat Community Art Space, which offers classes in aerial arts, trapeze, juggling and other tricks of the carnival trade. Perfect for the youngster who wants to fly through the air with the greatest of ease. Really, perfect for kids of any age, including adults who haven’t forgotten how to have fun like kids do. Or maybe it’s especially perfect for the adult who has forgotten.

But don’t just take it from me, but rather from the wondrous Sadye Osterloh, and heed the many exclamation marks:“Wondering what to get your kids, partners, bosses or grandparents for the Holidays? Feeling a little bit stumped? Why don't you just get them to join the circus! You can register your loved ones for a session of circus classes! Take your pick of classes from juggling, trapeze, acrobatics, aerial silks, improv/comedy, percussion ensemble, mask-making and more!”
