Yup. It’s cold out. As a Canadian, Mama Silks says, “Stop your grumbling, get out your tuque and your down coat and get your behind to class.”
Many of my American students may not understand my "Canadian," so here’s an image of the "tuque" our Canadian athletes will be wearing at the upcoming Sochi Olympics.
We now have a Google Map of aerial and circus studios across America!
I survived my first week of circus life! My Residency program started this week and I had my first private lesson in dance trapeze, with Aimee Hancock. She is an amazing instructor and I feel really lucky to be working with her. I definitely thought of Susan this week, while working on dance trapeze. I'm really surprised how much I've fallen in love with the apparatus.
Observing each other during the exercises felt like watching a show, even though there were hardly any aerial tricks at all.
"You don't have to have all the skills that ever existed to make a beautiful piece," Rain said.
My mother always joked that one day I'd run away and join the circus, and now I am.
