Who I’m Loving Today – Sofia Tsola

Dear Danglers – that is ONE HELLUVA STARTING POSITION! Notice how gloriously deliberate and precise every move is. Also? Clean and sassy (she doesn’t gum up her stunning work with a lot of random noodling). I love this, and hope you will too! Love and pull-ups, Laura

VIDEO: Getting Into Cirque

Hello Dear Danglers! First, let me thank everyone who asked after all of us here in NYC in the wake of Hurricane Sandy! Classes are back in full swing (heh heh), and I’m positively giddy with excitement. HOORAY!

 

I was trolling the YouTubes for juicy little tidbits to share with you, and found this fun look into the process of becoming a Cirque du Soleil performer – funzies! Regular blog posts will resume this Thursday now that things are reasonably “back to normal” (whatever that is), so thanks for your patience. Enjoy! Love and pull-ups, Laura

Erika Lemay – Lyra Brilliance

I first worked with Erika Lemay in a show in Venezuela many moons ago. She must have been about 16 – coltish, a little awkward, and very sweet, performing on fabrics and duo straps. WELL. Gone is the awkwardness, and in it’s place is pure, unadulterated brilliance – VA-VOOM! She is one of my all-time favorite lyra performers – have a look at the video and you’ll see why. Bravo, Erika! Love and pull-ups, Laura

 

PS – aerial students & fledgling aerialists – look at how beautifully put together this act is. NOTHING is an afterthought – her (composed) music, costume, choreography, right down to her hair – combines to create a very specific picture.

VIDEO: Brilliant Movement and Character – Are YOU Fleshing Out Your Performances?

There’s a LOT to love about this fun and imaginative performance, but I am completely in love with her movement quality and the specificity of her character work – SUPERB! Let this inspire you to create magic this week (and every week). Enjoy! Love and pull-ups, Laura
