A look back… and a push forward

“The only person you should be comparing yourself to is who you were yesterday.”
Falsely yours, A. Nonymous

June wasn’t without it’s challenges, but like they say: “With great challenge comes great reward”, and rewards there were many.

It is with great pleasure that I am sharing with you my new aerial silks demo reel.  The video was filmed at École National du Cirque in Montreal and was recorded and edited by my talented friend Alexis Vigneault.

I am beyond proud of the end result.  It is a great symbol of my work this past year, and an excellent motivation to keep going!

I also received my prints from my first aerial photoshot!

I really enjoyed playing with makeup and getting a chance to see my character come to life.  Now, I’m all set to head out and start knocking on company doors.  For a glimpse at some of the photos check out the Gallery.

Monday, June 30th was the opening of our show “100% femmes” at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal.

It was 40 degrees outside with the humidity, and pavement and wind were interesting challenges, but we did really well.  We are beyond excited to perform our last two shows on Friday, July 5th and Saturday, July 6th. Feel free to check out some of the photos taken during our first show in the Gallery page.

If I were to be comparing myself, to the Léda who started this blog 1 year ago, I would have to say I’ve come a long way, and I can’t wait to keep going.  Anything is possible!
