Aerial class is going so well, guys! On Friday, I managed to do the first full series of tricks on the trapeze! That was like 5 or 6 tricks, granted some of them were pretty wobbly legged (nothing like standing, balanced on a 2" pipe).

I can effectively pike and pull myself up pretty easily the first couple of times - but the interesting thing about aerial is actually the point where you exhaust yourself in class. Evidentally, in order to really build strength, you have to keep doing tricks until your body is - literally - too tired to pull yourself up again. (Just like lifting weights.)

I'm really hoping to debut an aerial act in 2012, and I'm very optimistic about the potential to present something basic and impressive! I hope that this will be something I can do for a long time - the exercise is great, and I really enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when I can actually do (perhaps not with panache, but that will come!) large portions of the tricks the teacher demonstrates!
