The New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro will hold a free open house Saturday for interested students to try activities before committing to a session of classes.

From noon to 2 p.m., youth and adults can play on aerial silks, learn to juggle, balance on a wire, hang on a low trapeze and explore New England’s only custom-built circus facility.

Staff will be on hand to lead activity stations and answer any questions.

This is also a chance to put your daring to the test on the flying trapeze (with safety lines, of course). One turn on the trapeze is $10, or three turns for $20.

The winter session of classes at NECCA begins Jan. 6 with more than two dozen classes.
