In the past year i’ve been producing the TLV Burlesque Festival, the first burlesque festival in Israel, and it was a great success. I’ve created a show especially for this festival of course on my aerial anchor and it was well love and appreciated. Continue reading “Aerial Burlesque – Hawaii Fun by the Beach – My New Show” »
I’ve been in the aerial acrobatics world for almost 10 years, that means 10 years of taking classes and meeting many different kinds of trainers. Some were really good and some… as you can read from Part 1 of this post were not that amazing. All of them shaped me to become the kind of aerialist and performer I am today and I am always searching for more trainers to learn from.
This post is long over due.
A year and a half ago I fell from a trapeze. I never fell from my hoop or from any other aerial apparatus. It was very frightening, it was shocking but most of all – it wasn’t my fault. It was my (now ex) trainer’s fault.
The minute i fell i was lying on my face, on a thin thin mattress and i was shocked, frightened, scared, i was afraid i will not be able to move anymore, i was afraid i will not be able to walk. I was devastated.
This is something I have been working on for a year now.
I wanted to create something different, something that will express how hard it was for me to move countries, to get used to different cultures. The cultural masks I had to put and the struggle of being a stranger.
This roll is a hard move on the shoulders and should be done low and with a spotter.

More than I like the fact that when you stretch something you know exactly what you stretch, I like to know what should I stretch if I feel pain or muscle cramp.
Lately I started working out at the gym to become stronger for my aerial training. I try to work out every second day, when i’m not doing aerial training.
Every training at the gym takes me about 2.5 hours and I’ve noticed that after that my body is very flexible and it feels as if it wants to get bent.
So, learning more and more how to listen to my body, I started stretching after my training while i’m still at the gym.
I wanted to make a video of me stretching and than I found this lovely lady’s video that I feel is really similar to my back bend routine.
I would like to start this post by saying “i’m sorry” for all of you who feel like I’ve neglected you.
I changed countries (again), moved from UK (London) to Germany (Berlin).
In the past few months my husband and I didn’t know where we will live and I was a bit out of my game but now i’m back!
I am going back to train seriously and though I tried to maintain my power i didn’t really do anything artistic since May, so the next 2 months (starting week 2 of September) will be all about going back to train with my aerial acrobatics trainer, my contortion trainer and my lovely friend and trapeze partner.
I am going to create a video soon to show some aerial conditioning exercises that will make you stronger. Meanwhile, I’ve found a very good YouTube tutorial for “How to do your first pull-up”.
I have recently did a new photoshoot for a new aerial anchor show I created.
I am glad to share here with you the new photos and a short video of the “Behind the Scenes”
