Trapeze Artists Share Tricks Of The Trade
Trapeze Artists Share Tricks Of The Trade

AIR DATE: October 14, 2013

Terry Cavaretta accidentally wound up in the circus business alongside her siblings after they stumbled into a circus class at a local youth center. Later, as a member of the Flying Cavarettas, she and her siblings broke gender barriers (and the occassional bone), at Circus Circus. Now she has returned from retirement with a school for would-be flyers. She and trapeze performer Izzy Yaakub tell us what it takes to make it in trapeze.
