My last few hours in Toronto this week were spent joining the circus. My wonderful friend Sylvia invited me to join her at the Flying Arts Collective. I have known a few folks who were into silk aerial work (such as Lis, the source of my worms!) but had never tried it myself.
The wonderful instructor, Stephanie, walked me through a great warm up and then got me going on the basics.
After basic climbing skills we got into foot locks.
And eventually I managed an inverted butterfly move. But I was too exhausted to repeat the move for the photoshoot so instead here is a photo of my butt half inverted.
That was Wednesday. I am still hurtin’.
I think I want to do more of this.
