35 & Under: Flying High at the Capitol Riverfront

The CREW DC 35 & Under Committee continued its 2015 “taking risks” theme by flying high with the Trapeze School New York at DC’s up-and-coming Navy Yard! First, the group took a walking tour of the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood, led by Tammy Shoham, VP of Planning and Development of the Capitol Riverfront BID. The group learned about the history of the neighborhood and how Canal Park and The Yards Park played an important role in spurring development in the area. They also got an overview of the boom of projects under construction and in the pipeline for the next 3 years, further transforming the neighborhood. Next the participants stretched their comfort zones by taking part in a flying-trapeze class. While learning trapeze required trust, support and little bit of guts, participants were quickly flying high with confidence and grace!
