What’s Next?

I would like to start this post by saying “i’m sorry” for all of you who feel like I’ve neglected you.On the way from London to Berlin

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.

The Physics of Rigging from Trees / Delbert L. Hall

I got Delbert L. Hall’s permission to post this article that he wrote on his website. This is for all of you aerialists:

If you have read much of anything that I have written over the last 30 years, you know that I do not like to say “don’t do that,” but rather, “if you do that, then this will be the result,” or “you must contend with such and such.” This same logic applies to rigging from trees, you can do it, but you must understand the forces and how to properly deal with them.

Pencil Under the Hoop - Aerial Hoop Online ClassThis pose is beautiful by itself but, as many other poses, it’s a transition to many other poses.

If you are a beginner you most likely won’t succeed to get into it very easily, and this is why i show in the video also an easier way to get into it, BUT it is important to remember that this is not the RIGHT way to get into it, it is an easier way to help you understand what it feels like to be in this pose.
