Emerald City Trapeze Arts Presents: Moving Day

On 14-16 April, 2016, Seattle's largest and most ambitious cirque space, Emerald City Trapeze Arts, is transforming into a magical extravaganza of circus arts for Moving Day . This staff production is teeming with international talent and promises to be the best ever. I will quote ECTA here:

 "Our international performers hail from POP Circus in Japan, Cirque du Soleil - La Nouba in Florida, Cirque du Soleil - Mystere in Vegas, Circus Juventas in Minnesota, and professional theatrical circus performances in Germany and Spain.

Our Acrobatic Archer, Orissa Kelly, joins us all the way from the UK where she performed for Queen Elizabeth II, the Prince of Saudi Arabia, and London Fashion Week."

I can't wait to see the show!!!! 

I can't wait to see the show!!!! 

Tickets are $25 for adults - unless you want VIP balcony seating at eye level with the trapeze action!! They are selling out fast - book your tickets here.  Doors will open at 9 pm for the 21+ Friday and Saturday shows (which is when I plan on being there).

Honestly, I'm just super excited and in counting-down suspense mode to see this show. Considering that many of the performers are my coaches, mentors and friends, my heroes with whom I get to work with and learn from every day, there can be nothing more exciting than to see them rock it out and do their best!! If you are looking for an unforgettable night in Seattle this weekend, see you there!

2016 Goals

2016 Goals

As I reflect on years immersed in the grace and extreme athleticism of synchronized swimming to the present, embarking on the magical world of aerial cirque dance, it is as if I am a force learning to move through different mediums. A spark of energy traveling from water to earth to air. In 2016 I look forward to experiencing and sharing endless Love and Light through movement, which consistent training and performing entail.

Barre: Bo Mellinger

A naturally talented actor, singer, dancer and performer, Bo Mellinger, who teaches the Barre3 method, has an exceptional knowledge and feel for the dancer's body. What muscles drive which movement; lines; and how subtly various exercises affect the physique. In class he focuses on mental imagery and cues that are precise and naturally relatable. Seemingly without effort - but we all know what an illusion that can be - Bo makes your body move with energy, precision, perfect posture and optimal alignment.

2016 International Contortion Convention

The 2016 International Contortion Convention is just around the corner! If the $355 General Registration fee and travel to fabulous Las Vegas are not in the cards this year, many of the sessions will be streamed live for the first time! The ICC takes place every two years, alternating between Europe and Las Vegas, USA.

Fundamentally, I believe that, when we seek with our heart, we discover and manifest exactly what we most need in the present moment. If you ask mindfully - the answers will come to you, whether in the mind's eye or the physical world. You will attract the right people into your life, find the right resources and open all the right doors. You will find yourself irreversibly drawn to the right ideas for you at this time.
