If you would have asked me a few years ago if I would ever consider doing aerial dance, I would’ve told you you’re crazy.  I never in a million years thought I would be strong enough to do it.  This past year I took a leap of faith and decided “what’s the worst thing that can happen if I try it?”  Well, I am so glad I did. I haven’t felt this strong or powerful probably ever in my life.  I have so much energy and my confidence is through the roof. I honestly look forward to being able to go to class and am super excited to continue learning more through the time span of the program.  The music is super upbeat and motivating and the staff are super down to earth and will be your biggest supporters.  I have met so many amazing people throughout this journey so far, but more importantly I am learning who I am as a person and finding myself through the expression of aerial dance. 

Every week we learn how to push our limits just a little further and not only become stronger physically but also mentally as well.  I find myself accomplishing some moves I never thought I would be able to and doing them well at that.  I feel like this is a place where I belong and cannot wait to see the progress over the months as I continue my journey in aerial dance.  What had once started as a fun way to get myself in shape for a horseback trick riding clinic has turned into a way of life for me. 

I have learned so much in such a short amount of time and cannot wait to see what else is in store for me. I am super excited to see my muscles get more toned and to be able to notice a difference in my physical strength as well.  This is a sport that isn’t easy, but is very rewarding when you are finally able to look back and see a move you got that you didn’t think you would be able to or when you are able to look back on your progress and see how far you have come over the time span of the program.  I cannot wait to see what is in store for me in the future and am excited to be able to say I am glad I took the first step in trying aerial dance.
