Lilah and I have been working hard since the beginning of the year on choreographing, practicing and polishing a piece on the lyra or hoop. It’s one of our favorite apparatuses at the moment. We taught ourselves most of the moves in this piece as the classes we take are almost exclusively solo moves and tricks. We did a lot of research and tried a lot of poses and combinations to put together this piece which we performed at our studio. I think our strong connection helps us move together in a synchronized way. My sister and her partner, my mom and of course Chris and Gavin came to support us. My dad wasn’t feeling well enough to attend but encouraged us a whole lot along the way.
Here we are, performing together in front of a big audience! It was so special to put this together, practice and perform with my daughter and I am so, so proud of us. I hope there will be more in the future! Lilah is excited about creating something spooky for Halloween.
