Writer, nerd, and pole dance/aerialist extraordinaire in training. I love to spin!

Pole. Aerial. Contortion. Movement.

Age 22. Living and loving in Colorado. Started poling from the ground up in late March 2012. No previous dance/gymnastic experience. Or any physical activity, actually. This is me derpin' around, for the most part. Enjoy!

Pro-Track Journal: Week 6? 7?

livesoftheaerialists:

By Meri 

Time in pro-track has been going by like lightening. Already we have finished our first session and I have grown tired of recounting the day to day grind in detail. Although I am sure you are all just dying to know what flavor of KIND bar I eat every day, I’ll try to be more broad from now on. Also I have no free time to speak of. 

Like really. None. 

Slings class has turned into rope and harness, and Pilates into modern dance technique, both of which are becoming new friends of mine. Fabric has turned to rope, still just as challenging. Trapeze will be lyra soon, which I happily anticipate. Contact improv shall become handstands, something of which I desperately need.

Last spring I performed my first sling solo for my friend&#8217;s thesis show. It was awesome! She made these light up clouds that were the bomb. Also she wrote and performed all the music. It was a good experience.

This was one of my inventions twisted from when Ken was trying to teach us backwards cartwheels. It didn’t go as well on stage but a 40 makes it nice and comfy #PoleUnbound #poledance #pole #backflip #handstand #contortion

Low is the new high with @seanmichaelpole at #PoleUnbound @risinggoddess #shoulderstand

I’m going to pretend that the 40 has nothing to do with my confidence that I can nail this transition soon and instead it is thanks to the awesomeness happening at #PoleUnbound #pole #badass (at Rising Goddess Fitness)

#PoleUnbound is minutes from beginning. Thanks for the lovely gifts from Michelle and Barb of @risinggoddess fitness. They are so gracious for hosting this event!! #pole #poledance #gifties  (at Rising Goddess Fitness)

540 drop! Needs some cleaning up, but it’s fun to learn new things! #aerial #silks #fabric #aerialsilks

We started rope and harness today. I have a feeling I’m gonna love it. So much spinning and flying! #aerial #dance #ropeandharness #rope #harness #protracklife
