How did you get into flying trapeze?
I tried flying trapeze when I was on holiday a few times. When I moved to London, I had to find a flying trapeze right away. I found Gorilla Circus… and the rest is history!

What flying trapeze trick do you like to throw the most?
I like throwing layouts, but I don’t really have a favourite. LOVE IT ALL.

What do you like best about teaching flying trapeze?
When students say “I did what you said and it worked!”

What advice would you give to someone who’s on the fence about trying flying trapeze?
Sitting around on a fence like that is scarier than flying trapeze!

What feedback do you give the most often to students?
Try to knee yourself in the face (To knee-hangers)

Tell us something wise that you learned from flying trapeze, or share a funny story.
If at first you don’t succeed, you are just currently having difficulties, and you should try harder in the future!
