I learned my first drop on silks!!!
It was awesome. And scary. But mostly awesome.
I did this today!
(And a less lame post will come tomorrow once I’ve finished my semester.)
I was actually going to try to diversify my posting topics a bit, I swear, but then I had the best aerial day ever yesterday, and then another super good aerial day today, and I’m so excited that I just have to write about it. I’ll talk about something else another time.
So yesterday I passed my climb test, and then I did two inversion progressions on silks, and then I successfully pulled off a seahorse on trapeze. And today I got a push me, pull me on silks! All of these are things I have been trying and failing at, so it was incredibly vindicating to finally succeed.
But, since not everyone who reads this is as obsessed with aerial as I am, let’s talk about what those things actually are.
Today I was told that I’m good enough to start going to level 2 aerial silk classes!
So I’m learning to do this now.
(The girl in that video is performing in a student showcase at the place where I’m taking classes, and at the time of the recording she’d been doing aerial for a little over a year and a half.)
It is exactly as awesome as it looks. Potentially more awesome, actually.
