Imagine flying through the air and flipping from a 25-foot-high trapeze – defying gravity isn't just for circus performers anymore.

Circus Harmony, a nonprofit organization that teaches the art of life through circus, is making it possible for anyone to experience the thrill of flight at its new Flying Trapeze Center. The center – the only one of its kind in the area – is located just outside Union Station next to the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown St. Louis.

The center is bringing the joy of trapeze to anyone who is willing to take a flying leap off the platform – while tightly secured in a safety harness, of course.

"Remember when you were little, running around with a cape on your back and wishing you could fly?" said Jessica Hentoff, artistic and executive director of Circus Harmony. "Now you get to fulfill the dream of flying – you can defy gravity. We hope everyone comes to fly and to see how it feels."

Webster University student Toni Campbell loves the flying trapeze.

"It's exhilarating," she said while taping her hands before her fourth class at the center. "It's terrifying at first, but it's a really fun experience. It's also a great workout at the same time."

Fly for fun. Fly for fitness. Fly to
