Triple Trapeze Group Performance from Sarah Muehlbauer on Vimeo.

I have so many things to blog about and haven’t had a second to sit down at a computer and write them. This weekend was full of summer fun including the LA Vegan Beer Fest and cool movie screenings. I’ll have some recaps to share up here on the blog this week.

I had a really rewarding aerial class on Sunday as I completed all the tricks I’ve learned thus far successfully. I’ve been struggling with a few basic moves on aerial silk that I’ve been able to do, but not gracefully. This week I was able to pull them off with ease. It feels awesome to know that I’m improving.

We’re half way through the summer session which means I’m half way there to the little performance we’ll be doing. I’m excited to put together an act, but haven’t yet decided whether I’ll be doing aerial silk or single trapeze.

The video above is from a friend’s triple trapeze performance that I’m loving right now (and hopefully she won’t mind that I’ve linked to here). The choreography is so fluid and I am really into how each trick turns into the next thing without pausing. There is always something to catch your eye. I will try to keep this style in mind when I’m putting together my own little demo.

p.s. if you’re viewing this in a reader, make sure to jump out and watch the video.

summer time


It finally feels a little like summer today and it’s making me think of all the things I want to do while the sun is shining. Mostly I’ve been enjoying gloomy mornings, but a little warmth reminded me that there are lots of summer events not to be missed.

Here are some of the things I want to do this summer:

  1. Go camping, preferably in the Sequoias
  2. Have more picnic lunches
  3. Go to a drive in movie, as I’ve still never been, ever
  4. Ride my bike more (oops someone needs to get back in cycling shape)
  5. Learn an awesome aerial routine
  6. Go to one of the Cinespia cemetery screenings
  7. Go on some some cool hikes

So basically, movies & outdoors (and circus).

What are your summer plans?
