Emerald City Trapeze Arts (ECTA) is the Pacific Northwest's premiere destination for Flying Trapeze and Aerial Arts. Located just south of downtown Seattle, ECTA is housed in the former Canal Boiler Works building in SODO. Rustic charm shines through in its wood-beam construction and funky décor, but the real magic is up in the air. Featuring a full-sized flying trapeze rig, a professional theatrical performance stage and a stunning aerial studio, ECTA students enjoy nearly 20,000 square feet of vibrant, historic space in which to learn circus and acrobatic arts from world-class instructors. We are also proud to be one of Seattle's most unique special event venues. Part of life's mystery is about figuring out what makes you happiest, and discovering a community around you in which you can thrive. At Emerald City Trapeze Arts, we think family is a group of people who believe in the same imaginary place... *No experience necessary. Beginners are welcome.*

If you are in to family fun - do it. If you are not afraid of heights and getting a sour body - go there. It is extraordinary- and the money worth :)

The experience was amazing/scary/breathtaking/fun! The instructors are really good at teaching you what to do, they were motivating & knowledgable. I took my 12 yr old niece & she loved it as well.

We booked a family birthday party for me! 43 year old who likes to seem young. There were 11 of us who showed up for a two hour class on hanging by our knees.

I had the amazing opportunity to fly at Emerald City Trapeze on Saturday, 12/12/15. What a wonderful experience it was! The staff was very good at explaining exactly how everything works and what would happen once I got up to the board at the top of the ladder. And then their communication with me and with each other was exceptional!... More

My daughter just got married at Emerald city. The wedding had a circus theme so this place was perfect, but it would be great for any wedding.
