Has anyone had any experience with Trapeze Arts in Oakland? I took a class there recently and loved it. I'm considering signing up one or both of my children (ages 5 & 7) for summer camp. I checked the archives and didn't see much, so I'm hoping that someone on BP can share their experience with this place. Thank you! Jenn
I've just signed my daughters up for Trapeze Arts' summer camp. Since this will be the first time they've participated in the camp, I can't give you any feedback on the program, but I can tell you this: Your five-year-old will not be eligible.
Despite the fact that my younger daughter, who is currently six, has been taking class at TA all year (which she loves), she was not eligible to participate in the summer camp until the actual week this summer that she turns seven. When I wheedled and pleaded for them to take her earlier in the summer (in a week that was far more convenient for our schedule) TA staff said, in essence, ''We have to be very rigorous about not taking kids younger than seven. It's a long day at our camp, the kids are constantly on the go, and we find that kids under seven simply can't keep up.''
Hope that's of some use to you! Darcy
Re: Gymnastics Class for 5 year old boy
This isn't straight gymnastics, but very fun for a 5 year old. Trapeze Arts is a wonderful circus school in Oakland, where he can learn tumbling, trapeze, trampoline, etc. It's non-competitive and fun, with close attention paid to safety. The family that runs the school are wonderful, caring people who hire the same. Have fun! Heidi
Re: Circus school in the East Bay?
Try Trapeze Arts in Oakland. They have classes for adults and children. They're listed in the telephone book. Website here: http://www.caladventures.com/TrapezeArts.htm with a coupon!
