The thing that intrigued me about flying trapeze was that participants were going up with a lot of fear and trepidation and coming down feeling triumphant about what they accomplished. What I realized was that trapeze was a great facilitator for people rediscovering what they were capable of. I sold my house and a business when I fell in love with flying trapeze. I bought a rig and after a couple years when I felt we had it together, we started having some classes. I switched my entire (life) around.
