The flying trapeze: fly from one bar to another or from a bar to a catcher at a height of 7 meters.

Vertical dance: raised 3 meters off the ground by a rope, bounce horizontally on a huge vertical canvas.

Bungee trapeze: pulled by elastic ropes, bounce in the air and try to catch a trapeze.

Air gymnastics: rotate and execute positions in the air with fabric, a smooth rope, and a fixed trapeze or hoop.

The trampoline: learn how to jump and stop in place.

Bungee games: kids bounce back and forth along an acrobatics course while attached to bungee ropes.

Stilt walking: start with 30-cm-high stilts.

The unicycle: keep your balance on one wheel while holding a rope.
