I created a map for all of us Aerial Hoop people so that we can find each other, know where we train in case we want to meet or while traveling and searching for a place to train.

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.
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.
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.
