This site is dedicated to the wonderful art of aerial performance and training and the promotion of disability and integration in the performing arts.
My passion for aerial began after I was injured in a car accident in 2000 which left me partially paralysed from the waist down known as incomplete paraplegia which means that I have some movement and sensation but its very patchy. Over the past 15 years i have started and stopped physiotherapy many times trying to improve my quality of life while still being wheelchair bound but it never made me happy and instead made me feel less capable. After spending time with several physiotherapist I found one that made it fun and I realised I needed something exciting outside of it to challenge me to move my body and thats how I stumbled on aerial.
After calling around I found a school that was opened minded about having a student with a disability training at their facility and thats when I met Tammy Zarb at Industry Aerial Arts who was more than happy and encouraging for me to come along and see what I could do.
Over 3 years later (and after a lot of blood, sweat and tears) I found my way not only standing for longer periods of time, but climbing, hanging upside down and wrapping myself up in the wonderful world of aerial artistry.
Since starting this blog I have started training in not only aerial silks but lyra and hammock and aerial chair and i look forward to sharing with you my experiences in the hopes you will get something out of this blog and to also prove that if you want something badly you can achieve ANYTHING!
