From Dark to Light

Have you ever had a class where nothing goes right? Moves you’ve been able to do for months fail you as you slide to the floor like a limp noodle… Confidence shattered, frustration rising, self-confidence shaken. I had this exact pole class Wednesday night. I left that class so discouraged. Trying to make my long…

How Do You Define Healthy?

Women’s Health Week This week is National Women’s Health Week. If you were to ask me last Sunday what that meant, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you. I probably been like “Yea! Go Women!” Aerial Dance has been posting various websites/articles about Women’s Health Week, in my free time, I have been trying…

I Have An Addiction

Do you ever do something to feel a rush? A sense of euphoria? Momentary ecstasy? I do… If someone had told me 5 years ago that I would dance in front of 500 people, I would have laughed in their face. I’ve always been the shy girl who sits in the corner. I could go…

A Night with the Team

Ladies Night! On Wednesday April 11, I hosted a little get together with some of Aerial Dance’s own competition team! Unfortunately, not all could attend and we missed them dearly! My reason behind this even was to get a perspective of what it is like to participate on the Aerial Dance Competition Team! I like…

Not My Strong Suit

Many of you have often heard me describe myself as a Practical Poler. I groan inside (and sometimes it slips out) when we do floorwork or transition type stuff in pole class.  I’ve never been a super graceful person, even as a kid. I tend to be very choppy in my movements. It took my…

Follow the Leader

I was talking with a friend the other day about the many things that make Aerial Dance such an awesome place to workout. I talked about the variety of classes, the equipment, how unique the classes are, the small class sizes, etc. But what I found myself talking about most was the environment and the…
