With a Spring in My Step

I am SO stoked that today was above 80 degrees here in HB.  The chilly weather was really getting me down and then finally some sunshine arrived! I had a fabulous time taking ballet this morning with my dear friend Brittany.  There is no better workout, seriously!  I was sweating by plies! Afterward we got some froyo and shopped downtown.  The beach was crazy packed full of sunbathers, spring breakers, and anyone jonesing for some summer fun.  I bought this little tee from Angl and shorts from F21.  My shoes are Sam Edelman that I got courtesy of the South Bay Galleria from my styling day! Woo woo!

Oh, and I can’t forget this precious thing lounging in our yard!  😉

After shopping, sun, and some cokes, I went to dinner with Laurie, my bf’s momma, who is awesome.  :p  We chatted about Vegas, pole dancing, Cirque du Soleil, and other normal stuff.  Hahahha.  It was delicious and fantastic.

I am very excited for the upcoming weeks.  I am afraid my blog is going to be largely about aerial and my Vegas auditions.  But that is cool too, right?

My exercise routine is getting fierce, which is good.  I am spending lots o’ dough on classes, but they make me so happy, it is worth it.

‘Till next time!

 

 

 

 

A Different Pointe of View

My boyfriend decided to make a short video on the painful and monotonous life of ballerinas.  This is his first HD movie and it took us two days to film.  Check it out and let me know what you think!

Make sure to view it in full screen by pressing the little four arrow icon under the video.

I’m very proud of Fiona for working so hard and gettin’ her face in a magazine!  Go Fiona!

You can check out a million more pics of Fiona’s recent photo shoots at her blog …but that sounds kinda morbid.

Chasing the Dream – Interview

One of my fellow Journalism 110 classmates, Brittany Graham, published this fab interview of…ME! :p

Her blog Chasing the Dream focuses on students attending college for a degree, but yearning to be in the spotlight for a different reason.  She interviewed me about my dreams of becoming a Vegas showgirl, or an aerial circus performer, or whatever I end up wanting to do.

She puts it much more eloquently than I can, so head over to chasingdreamz.blogspot.com to read my interview!

Dancing in the Sky

For the past six weeks I’ve been taking aerial lessons at Hidden Talents Fitness in Huntington Beach.

I’m just so excited because I have exercised everyday for this past week, and I anticipate keeping my routine for the next few months.  My schedule includes:

Monday: 1 1/2 hours of ballet
Tuesday: 1 hour aerial fitness followed by 1 hour of aerial hoop and tissu
Wednesday:  1 hour of aerial hoop and tissu
Thursday:  1 1/2 hours of ballet
Friday:  Pull ups, push ups, sit ups, and stretching
Sunday:  Kayaking

In retrospect, this week wasn’t even that difficult!  Truthfully I looked forward to every class!

I wish I had the money to take more, but it is kind of pricey.  Anywhere you go it is going to be at least $30 a class.  Sucks because you can get a gym membership at $25 for an entire month!  However, you can get deals and packages at studios that make it a little less.  I am just so lucky that I am not paying rent right now or I know I wouldn’t be able to take these!  Yikes!

The classes I am taking includes the hoop/lira and tissu/fabric/silk.  The lira is basically a strong hula hoop hanging from the ceiling, and the tissu is two long pieces of fabric hanging from the ceiling.

This aerial hoop girl video is awesome and there are soo many more videos on YouTube.

This is a video of aerial silk from Cirque du Soleil.  Click to about halfway through cuz the first part is slow.

Ta-da!

Is anyone else taking crazy acrobatic classes right now?  I really want to learn contortion but I don’t know anywhere that teaches it. Lemme know!
