Aerial Silk Diaries: Moving On Up!

aerialsilkdiaries
On Wednesday I took a test (along with several other classmates) to see if I could do all of the required poses and drops to start taking intermediate silk classes and guess what? I passed! It was an amazing feeling. I was so weak when I started taking classes in February. I couldn’t even do some of the most basic introductory poses. To be graduating into intermediate feels a little bit surreal because I remember watching everyone in that class and thinking I would never be able to do what they were doing! On Sunday I went for the first time and it was a lot of fun to learn some new things! This class is definitely a lot more exhausting as we’re doing most everything from an aerial invert – no more sitting in the hammock knot – this is all holding on to the free silks!

I’m going to start taking my camera to open silks to take some better quality videos for editing/sharing here on the blog! I think it would be fun to post a weekly video of my progress outside of grainy Instagram videos. What do y’all think? Yay or nay?

Are there any questions that you might have around this topic? Let me know! I would love to answer your questions in a video!

    I'm hopefully in love with aerial silks and would love to start taking regular classes. Two of my friends went to a discounted class and ended up having a bad experience with the instructor, so that put me off for quite a while. But now that I have a new job and more time on my hands, I really should investigate! Glad you're having an awesome time – congrats!

    Oh no! I'm so sorry that your friends had a bad experience. I can see how that would put you off. I hope you get a chance to look around and find a better place to take classes! It can be such the perfect little community if you find the right people. :)

  2. Well, you know I would say "yay"! You look so beautiful, fit, and graceful doing that. You make me say "I wish I could do that!" So are you going to go with red or blonde hair?! And I am a forever horrible fan/blog friend for not giving you a button. I need to make a good quality button, but I'm so lazy right now! -Jess L

    Oh girl, don't worry about the button if you don't have time. You may just come to my blog one day and see that I made a random picture of your face into a button. ;) Thank you for all of the compliments, as always! <3 I think I'm going to stick to blonde and go a little whiter, cut it a little shorter, and have some pastel pink put in. It's time for a professional cut so I'm going to see what my hair dresser thinks. :)
