Forget fear. Worry about the addiction.
By the way, that is the slogan for Trapeze School New York. They have a school down at the Santa Monica pier, and I always have fun watching the kids practice on the trapeze when I'm visiting there. That is something I would sure love to learn someday if I ever had the time and money for it! Actually, what I really want to try is silks... that thing where you are hanging from basically two long pieces of silk and you wrap yourself up in them and twist into all sorts of cool poses and shapes. One of my ballet friends does that stuff in New York, and she's been trying to convert me, but it hasn't really worked out yet since we live on opposite sides of the country now... but it looks like really hard and FUN.
And if you think THAT sounds cool (as I wander farther and farther off topic), you really have got to check out some of the footage from Project Bandaloop. They are an aerial dance group that does performances on the sides of skyscrapers and mountains. Incredibly cool stuff. Their demo reel is here to get you started: Bandaloop demo
Enjoy! Forget fear, worry about the addiction!
