I recently decided to start working with a new apparatus, the static trapeze. I hadn't ever been exposed to the static trapeze until I started my current teaching position at Cirque Indy. It started out as a flirtation really. I walked by the trapeze, eventually I touched the trapeze, then I sat on the trapeze. Before I knew it, I was mounting and performing moves in the trapeze. I'm taking things slowly and working on building confidence and aerial awareness in this new to me apparatus. I'm getting that excited newly discovered feeling all over again- one I felt nine years ago when I first touch a pole and recounted again and again with the silks and lyra. It's a happy feeling to be excited and driven to explore a new apparatus. It's the feeling that keeps an aerialist coming back for more. I'm hoping to explore more of this apparatus and share my journey here on my blog. So as they say in show business, stay tuned for more!
