Following the journey of an Aerial Dance student!

See You In The AM!

Getting Back To It! It has felt like years since I have set foot in the studio! This summer has gotten the best of me. Preaching to the choir I am sure! Who isn’t busy this time of year? Next week summer school comes to an end, and I could not be happier! However, I…

Breaking Point

Do you ever wake up in the morning and have a hard time looking at yourself in the mirror? That has been my feelings for the past couple of weeks. Most days my head feels like it’s spinning out of control. I have been stretched too thin with being a stepmom, fiance, school year ending,…

Knowing When to Stop

Into the Night On May 23, the Aerial Dance Performance Team had the amazing opportunity to perform at Oshkosh’s Into the Night. This festival was very similar to Bazaar After Dark that Aerial Dance has been showcased at. Our team was located almost in the center of the all the vendors/activities. We were blessed with…

Feeling Good

Spring Health/Fitness Challenges Spring health and fitness challenges sound great to get you ready for summer, but you have to be careful. Some challenges may benefit your health while others can be harmful. I am currently participating in an 8 week health and fitness challenge.

Growing Together!

Real Talk We are almost a week out from the Student Showcase! It is exciting and terrifying at the same time! I have performed several times with Aerial Dance in the Christmas Show and in Student Showcases, but my experiences this year for training and practicing with Steve have taught me a great deal. I…

Spring Is In The Air!

Well, Spring is in My Step Anyways! In pole class this week, we worked on some really cool Flips and Walk Overs!!!!!! We worked on Lever Back Flip and Lever Walk Over. The Lever Walk over isn’t truly a flip, but looks like one if done fast enough. Through my years at Aerial Dance, I…

Girl Show Yourself Some Love!

Self Love Party! The Aerial Dance Self Love Party marked the end of Aerial Dance’s Self Love Challenge. Challenge isn’t really the best word. I feel that Self Love February was suppose make each of us a little more aware of what we need to love ourselves. The Self Love Challenge was a way for…

Trying New Things

A New Term is Upon Us! Each passing term brings a roller coaster of feelings! For some it is the excitement of transitioning to a new level and others it is the shear joy and terror of a new pole/aerial adventure. For me, this new term brings out feelings of nervousness, joy, and fear. Many…
