Sky High

Last fall I finally cashed in a gift certificate for the Trapeze School that my friend Kristi had given me years prior. I knew that I would like it and was avoiding starting because trapeze lessons are expensive and I always have too many things to do. But trapeze is more fun than dancing and for better or worse, I don’t come to it with the same expectations I have of dance. It is scary and fun and makes me feel great and alive. Last week I had my first lesson since last year. My mom took the pictures of me; I took the pictures of my friend Lara.

I happened to be taking a lesson when a video crew was filming at the school (in the old tent location). You can see me in this video for NYC attractions on the Sheraton Hotel website; click on Local Area Guided Tour - the New York Trapeze School is the 2nd item featured.
