How about a little break from all these soap posts? I know this blog is mostly about soap, but occasionally I like to change it up a bit! So…
Trapezing! (or more accurately “flying”)
I took my first class (a two hour session) years ago. I really really liked it. Since then I had done a class here or there (usually when I a friend was visiting. I’d drag them along an we’d have lots of fun!). The trapezing school by me offers these ten week intensive classes. I really wanted to take one for a while. I finally signed up for a class in April. We’re nearing the end of the ten week session now and can I say I AM IN LOVE!
There is something magical and exhilarating and just plain fun about flying through the air and trying to get your body into positions it doesn’t want to ha! My biggest goal for this class was to “catch” the pullover shoot and learn my swing (which you need to really advance on to any of the tricks after the basics). It’s taken me five weeks but I’ve finally started to conquer the pullover shoot. Once I got the trick the next stage was the “catch” it.
Last week (6/14): This was one of the best tricks I’ve done. Everything was right. The catchers timing (it was a different catcher from who we usually have) was off so we just touched hands.
This week (6/21): Success!
Now it’s on to working on the swing. I’m so sad the class is ending but I’ll be back in the fall when classes resume again.
