Trinity Groves, the restaurant and entertainment center in West Dallas, has a new activity that seems made for social distancing: a trapeze.

Skyline Trapeze, which claims in a release to be Dallas' only trapeze rig and aerial training facility, has opened to the public, at 2720 Bataan St., formerly home to West Dallas Floors.

Skyline Trapeze was founded in 2013 under the name Dallas Circus Center by Donovan Chandler, a former trapeze artist. He's had a trapeze facility previously in Dallas, as well as in Addison and Lewisville.

In addition to the Trinity Groves location, he's planning to open a covered/indoor location at 2355 W. Northwest Hwy., just west of I-35.

Prices for the one-hour classes range from $55 to $60. You can fly solo or bring a group, currently limited to groups of 4. (During non-COVID times, the classes can hold up to 8 people.)

They'r also not doing any "catches" right now to minimize contact. "This is a great time to work on those swing progressions or turn-around swings," their class description says.

Classes feature on-the-ground introductions and safety procedures, followed by practice time attempting various tricks and catches over a safety net.

"We’re excited to welcome Skyline Trapeze to Trinity Groves,” says Trinity Groves co-owner Phil Romano. “It’s completely unique for the area and a great addition to our diverse collection of restaurants and shops. It’s the latest initiative to make Trinity Groves the number one entertainment destination in Dallas."
