Overview

Emerald City Trapeze Arts (ECTA) is the Pacific Northwest's premiere destination for Flying Trapeze and Aerial Arts. Located just south of downtown Seattle, ECTA is housed in the former Canal Boiler Works building in SODO. Rustic charm shines through in its wood-beam construction and funky décor, but the real magic is up in the air. Featuring a full-sized flying trapeze rig, a professional theatrical performance stage and a stunning aerial studio, ECTA students enjoy nearly 20,000 square feet of vibrant, historic space in which to learn circus and acrobatic arts from world-class instructors. We are also proud to be one of Seattle's most unique special event venues. Part of life's mystery is about figuring out what makes you happiest, and discovering a community around you in which you can thrive. At Emerald City Trapeze Arts, we think family is a group of people who believe in the same imaginary place... *No experience necessary. Beginners are welcome.*

We had a holiday party for work here. The building is really cool inside. Lots of old timber beams and a nice venue for the acrobats. The show was brief but entertaining.

Our family recently took the 2 hour beginner trapeze class and loved every minute of it. The team at Emerald City took care to make sure everyone had a great time, including our 2 children. What a fantastic experience!
