The Bachelorette Fete - Part I: Runaway with the Circus

Thursday, May 6, 2010

Today I’m beginning a new series dedicated to the many, MANY options available to brides and her best girl friends on what to do and where to go for the Bachelorette Party. This somewhat new tradition can take on a variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from a small luncheon with your friends, to an all-out destination getaway.  I’m going to begin this series with an activity I’m hoping one of my engaged girlfriends will be so excited to try, that she’ll insist we plan this immediately!

In the heart of Los Angeles is Cirque School LA. Founded by a Cirque du Soleil veteran, Cirque School offers classes that combine aerial circus moves and Pilates. With a focus on flexibility and strength as well as a whole lot of fun, taking a class at Cirque school with your girlfriends would be one not soon forgotten. The classes follow a circuit of exercises designed to increase core strength and fluid movement and include work on the trapeze,fabric and rope.  It’s a little scary but sounds like so much fun at the same time!  The training is intense, but seriously exhilarating.  Before you know it, you’ll be flying through the air with the greatest of ease. 

But not to fear!  For those of you who would rather keep both feet on the ground, the school offers Ground Classes, which also provide the same benefits, but at a much lower altitude, as well as mat and reformer Pilates classes. 

So throw caution to the wind and runaway to the circus, with your best girlfriends of course, even if it is only for a day.
