Momentum Upward

It has been a little over a year since I began performing as an aerial artist. It has taken most of my spare time and energy, but has been worth all the effort. Yoga gave me the strength and the wellbeing to follow my heart and aerial arts continue to full my passion. My whole life I have been making excuses for why I wasn’t getting on stage; too big, not properly trained, not good enough, too old….no more….I have been having such a good time! I would have laughed my head off if someone told me two years ago that at 39 years old I would be starting my first official performance year. Well, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. It is hard to feel down when you get spend so much time up in the air! I am so proud to be performing with the Red Light Variety Show and hope to continue to get on stage in some capacity till the day I leave this world.

The next Red Light Variety Show opens next week! For all of you Boise friends that plan to attend please hang around after the show and give us all a big hug.
