New trick: penny roll. It's the same as a cherry drop on uneven parallel bars, aka the trick I bashed my face in doing on a playground as a teenager. But now that I have done it (slowly) off a trapeze, next time i'll do it with the swing and smile at the catcher :)
Aerial silks pushed me to my exhaustion limit today and nothing worked upside down... It made me so anxious and I felt defeated, but seeing more posts from my circus filled weekend reminds me I am strong, amazing, and surrounded by the best circus family! <3
All successful catches yesterday with my first releases! Love the amazing staff @tsnyla and my amazing friends who all flew so beautifully yesterday! Love how special @beccabattoe makes me feel at the end of the video ❤️. And thank you @suhweetdee for the amazing second angle!! My heart is happiest when my feet are off the ground. ❤️
I’ve realised that adulthood for me has largely consisted of me doing all the stuff I really wanted to do - but didn’t - as a kid 👧🏼
Gymnastics - Flying (trapeze) - Skiing - not sitting at a desk all day - living in a city - getting paid to be bossy - getting paid to live in lycra etc etc 🤸🏼♀️
If your adult life isn’t your childhood wishes made real, do something to change it 🙏
SO. MUCH. FUN!!! 🎪 cannot believe I waited this long to do the trapeze school. Thank you so much @queenieire for taking me to my first class two weeks ago, and for coming today! This place is amazing! #trapezeschoolnewyork#flyingtrapeze#sofun

a little highlight reel from yesterday’s flying trapeze lesson. I didn’t successfully complete my catch & release but that just means I have an excuse to go back & practice! I have fallen head over heels for this, there is no better feeling then flying through the air!! @tsnyla #tsnyla#flyingtrapeze#imjoiningthecircus
Enjoy some video from Saturday’s session! We had a great time flying with our regulars and a new visiting flyer. It was a pleasure to meet Aaron who came to visit all the way from Denver’s Imperial Flyers.
Voici quelques vidéos de la leçon de samedi! Nous avons eu de beaux moments avec nos réguliers et un visiteur. C'était un plaisir d’accueillir Aaron de Denver Flyers Imperial qui est venu voltiger avec nous.
Been learning to rope climb over the last week - happy with my progress considering when I started I couldn’t get off the ground and now I can climb up and hang in there for a bit ☺️👊🏽 thank you for the nice photo @lozz_dog .
The past 11 weeks at Trapeze School New York (TSNY) Washington DC have been such a transformative experience for me. Before my first class, it had been three years since I set foot in a gym (...and that was a 5 week stint). Before that, the last physical activity I loved and did with any real enthusiasm was riding horses, which I haven’t done routinely since I was 13.
Trapeze makes me feel alive in a way that I’ve previously only felt while riding a horse. The wind/ air blowing against my face, the rush of adrenaline pulsating throughout my body, and the smile that comes from deep within after getting a new trick right. I’m not good at conventional sports, but I am* good at trapeze.
Since starting trapeze classes I’ve quit smoking, I’ve gained muscle tone in places I didn’t know even had muscle you could possibly tone, and finally feel like I’m getting “in shape” for the first time in my life. But more than any of that, I feel good. I feel happy. I’m starting to belong to a community that harbors positivity and encourages growth.
This Friday night’s showcase was the culmination of my Intensive Flying Workshop, which consisted of 10 Saturday mornings spent with the same phenomenal instructors and classmates each week as we learned new tricks, mastered old ones, and lent each other a hand and a kind word when it all seemed too hard to do. Then we came together and performed in front of over 100 people. And we did such an incredible job.
Words can’t express what being a tiny part of the TSNY-DC community has done for me, but man, has it done this mind/ body/ soul really good. Life altering good. When I think back to where I was 4, 5, 10 years ago? Tears automatically form in the corners of my eyes. That lost little girl would never believe her future held this much good.
Tomorrow I begin static trapeze to work on my body strength for flying. Who knows, maybe I’ll run away and join the circus... #circus#flyingtrapeze#intensiveflyingworkshop#trapezeschool#flyhigh#forgetthefearworryabouttheaddiction#ifw#lista#ready#HEP ! @tsnydc
After last year in turkey, I am back in the air. I am so scared of height, so anxious things can go wrong. This is one of my ways to fight. And it is soooo thrilling. Thank you @aircraftcircus for the brilliant afternoon #circus#flyingtrapeze#courage
