Living It Up: Flying Trapeze
Almost every child at some point dreams of joining the circus. For Jackie, a career under the big top still beckons. Tonight, Living It Up is headed to Boca to try out the Flying Trapeze.
Jackie: "What are you going to teach me?"
Frank: "I'm going to teach you a knee hang today...You're going to end up hanging by your knees, coming to the catcher, and I'm going to catch you."
Frank: "We are going to go to the single trapeze now and practice our knee hang on the ground before we take it up in the air."
Frank: "Legs up, keep going, let go"
Jackie: "I feel like my world's turning upside down."
Frank: "Legs off"
Jackie: "Now that I've mastered the single trapeze, I'm ready to take it in the air."
Jackie: "Forget it mom, I'm leaving my job and joining the circus."
Jackie: "Okay this looks a lot scarrier than it did from down there!"
Frank: "You're just going to step right in front of you keeping your arms straight.
Jackie: "That was so much fun!"
Jackie: "Now that you've seen me attempt the trapeze, check out these young ladies, they've tried the trapeze about 50 times and they are very good."
Jackie: "This looks like fun doesn't it?...You want to come up?"
Jackie: "And that's what it's like Living It Up learning how fly."
If you're interested in learning the trapeze, the Hi-Fli Academy is available for lessons.
Also don't forget next Tuesday, Jackie's learning the sport of fencing.
