Sign Up Now To ‘Fly’ This Fall

Register now as classes fill up quickly and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to join in trapeze workshops at Eisenhower Park’s I.FLY this fall.

 

“I.FLY was designed to give kids and adults the ability to fulfill their dreams of being in the circus,” says instructor Anthony Rosamilia.  “Flying through the air never gets boring.  At I.FLY, we help people create lifelong memories.” 

 

Flying trapeze workshops are a great way to dedicate yourself to learning. A consistent learning schedule makes a consistent flyer, so workshops are on the same day and time with the same group and instructors. You’ll develop a rhythm that creates more fluid transitions between turns—and more flying for you. I.FLY will touch more on the finer points of flying, fine tune take-offs, and tweak your positions to near perfection.

 

“When you are a beginner, you will learn a basic knee hang,” says Ann Marie Cagnazzi, a fairly new convert. “After you learn positions, you build off them. The instructors at I.FLY help you learn harder moves and tricks gradually.” 

 

Fall Workshops begin in September:

 

Workshops for all ages:  Wednesday, Sept. 3 through Oct. 22 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m.

 

Workshops for kids: Thursday, Sept. 4 through Oct. 23 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m.

 

Workshops for adults (17+): Tuesday, Sept. 16 through Oct. 21 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. 

 

At the Aquatic Center at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. Sign up at www.iflytrapeze.com or call 516-640-6995 for details.

In the case of German Cabral and Jason Galvin, energy efficiency advisors with the Farmingdale-based Green Homes Long Island, this was just the case. Who could have imagined that while trying to figure out the best way ot lower a client’s energy bills they would solve a 20-year-old mystery?
