Salon Rouge

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Here are a few photos from the gig I did at Salon Rouge last week.  I performed an Aerial Hoop act, plus my handbalance act.  It was an excellent night 🙂5768369163_ebba967d35_o.jpg5777054328_47984d62e7_b.jpg

Last week me and Lisa had a fabulous photoshoot with Nick Delaney.  We got some fabulous images that I will post on here and on my website very soon.  But just for a taster of the wonderfulness of both mine and Lisas skills, and Nicks photography, then here is one of my favourite images from the shoot of me and Lisa:sally_1.jpg

Being busy and finding time to update my blog!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

I was hoping to update this blog a bit quicker after events, but it turns out that being a busy handstander, and constantly either training, gigging, teaching, or sleeping, then i have less time than I thought in my life to do much else.  But i will be trying my best to keep this blog updated as much as I can 🙂

Handstanding in May

Here is a quick picture I just found of me in rehearsals for one of my handstand gigs a few weeks ago:han-balancer.jpg

May

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

 

May is looking to be fairly exciting so far 🙂

I am performing the majority of May’s gigs at private events in London doing handstands and contortion.  I am also performing both my handstand contortion act and my aerial hoop act in Cambridge towards the middle of the month.

I am in the gymnastics centre a fair bit at the moment, it is like an addiction where the more i train then the more i want to train.  I am just very lucky that London offers some fantastic adult gymnastics sessions.  I divide my training between East London Gymnastics Centre, and Camden/Talacre Gymnastics Centre.

I am also back to coaching gymnastics sessions in several schools, both primary and secondary around North London.  There is a competition some of the children I teach are working towards which is exciting.  And I am working towards obtaining my next coaching qualification which is also exciting.

My Duo Act

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

I would just like to use this post to say how amazing my duo act is and that me and Lisa are both awesome !!!!  Me and Lisa are both able to combine all of contortion, hand2hand, acrobalance, and acrobatics into our act, and it is technically very advanced, and choreographically beautiful.  We are I believe one of very few female duo acts working to the level that we are working at at what we do.
