It’s hip to be square: keeping your hips square, legs straight and toes pointed

gaiter guide aerial boots

“Bad habits are easier to prevent than to break. “ – Benjamin Franklin When doing aerial classes, chances are you will hear a nagging voice from somewhere in the room reminding you to straighten your legs, point your toes or to keep your hips square.

I didn’t discover my love of.. Read More

Surprise yourself: what happens when you step out of your comfort zone

“If you want something in your life you’ve never had, you’ll have to do something, you’ve never done.” JD Houston I recently went to a summer circus program for professional and pre-professional circus performers. All the trainers were well educated; most of them went through the circus school in Montreal and had performed with companies like Cirque de Soleil, 7 fingers and the Cirque Éloize. As you can probably imagine,.. Read More

Easy Peasy Lemon Trapeze-y: My Flying Trapeze Lesson with Gorilla Circus

I pass through Regent’s Park frequently, especially in the summer. The smells, the sounds and the sights of the park are a delightful reminder of how pleasant the overly crowded capital can be. On this day however, something had changed; something was different. Where there usually sat couples kissing, and children playing frisbee, instead there were people nonchalantly flying through the air as if it was the most normal thing to happen on.. Read More
