hiya! a photo of one of my contortion handstands. this was taken while i was at the circus school last summer. it was before i lost my chubbyness so please ignore the huge butt and thighs!

it was taken without me knowing- i was just practicing in the field outside the tent. i think we had just done build-up or seating as i have my work socks on.....

also sorry for the lack of pointed feet. my coaches told me again and again to point my toes and open up the angle of the top leg, it just took 4 months to remember to actually do it! hehehe! :D

and yes- i do have hands, the grass is just rather long!

and i also know that i have NO fashion sense! ;)

the course was great, and the coaches we had were very good...especially my handstand and contortion coaches- a romanian family who came with their 2 children (a 11 year old boy and a baby). their son was also an amazing handbalancer!

look at these photos of them...! img.photobucket.com . . .

we also had other coaches but i didnt spend as much time with them as i specialised in handbalance. they were also really nice and excellent teachers.

actually, i do act rather agressive in my act! i have a character act as a spider. i tend to target my attention on the attractive male members of teh audience! hehehe! it really gets their girlfriends to become possesive!

i'm getting my act dvd soon. i'll post a few clips once it arrives!

i know! if i drop my head towards the floor it tries to escape... i have managed to accidentally take off various sweaters and tops by letting them slide during training. i make a point of training in a nice bra! hehe!

I'm stealing your back. *Runs out, very spylike, grabs back and replaces it with mine.* You could have my little sister instead?

our ring, minus the ring kerb. this is where we trained, ate dinner, watched movies, lazed around and did shows!

full house!

build up- uncoiling the wires to the king-poles. i look miserable (im the shorty in the green top and addidas bottoms) but i was just concentrating really hard! you know the annoyance and confusion you feel when your headphones get all tangled? this is the same , just magnified like 100 times! the cables/rope stretch from the top of the central kingpoles to outside the ring of stakes- thats a lot of cable/rope to untangle!

you can see all the cables etc in this photo: the king poles are the two metal poles you can see sticking up aboue the canvas. check out out little box office- its so cute!

i found a little filthy dog to play with when we went to visit another circus. they were amazed that it let me pick it up and cuddle it- normally it bites... i have the power!


Image hotlink - 'http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v428/Snoopyjot/IMG_4148.jpg'
we went partying!

Image hotlink - 'http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v428/Snoopyjot/IMG_3653.jpg'
another fairground ride photo. we couldnt actually go on this ride as the max age was 7 and we would have all got stuck in the tunnels....ah well!

and last but not least-
Image hotlink - 'http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v428/Snoopyjot/IMG_1930a.jpg'
this was a common site. the police even had our registration plates on record. we were bad! lol! nothing serious though. we just had a romainian driver who looked like a terrorist....

here he is:

see what i mean?! but he was a lovely guy, really friendly. definately not a terrorist!

Please? You can't have my hips or legs though. I wouldn't want to give anyone my injured left hip, knees, ancles or feet. Sometimes I can barely walk. You could have Kazakova's? I promise, she won't feel a thing!

yes, i really am in the circus! i joined the academy of circus arts last year where i learned handstands, contortion and tons of other stuff, and now im employed by Bassline circus as their contortionist.

life is good! apart from the chronic hypermobility pain. but i cant have such a fab life without a few 'challenges'!!
