Doing aerial circus classes for 11 years now is something I love but performing is not something that comes naturally to me. This weekend my circus school is having their first adult performance night. It’s always adults performing but the shows are usually very family friendly. We are getting a bit sexier this time.

Unfortunately I’ve had to pull out of actually performing because my shoulder is injured. It was getting worse the more I did circus so the only option was to rest it and not do the show. The nervous, terrified of performing part of me is relieved but I was actually really looking forward to doing this routine.

I am however still hosting and MC’ing the show so I still get to wear an absurd outfit or two and be silly. It’s strange that getting up in front of people and talking doesn’t phase me at all but that’s the way it is.
