sylph preps for performance, part II


Recommended Posts

My circus gym's student showcase is coming up at the end of January. (1/27)


Here are the various deadlines/milestones associated with the show (as per the gym owner).

  • 12/30 Music selected/act conceptualized (done)
  • 1/13 Costume complete (mostly done)
  • 1/22 Tech rehearsal
  • 1/26 Dress rehearsal
  • 1/27 Performance day!


Performance music: 



Super strength-based routine with some playing to the audience and a bit of braggadocio.



Goals of some kind will be added as I think of them... likely do do with getting my food intake back under control after all the holiday goodies and ensuring I get enough practice so as to not look like an idiot at the end of January.

So awesome, looking forward to seeing the routine/updates! (Are you able to post a video of the routine?)

If I ever run it through, I'll definitely be filming it (haven't made it beginning to end, quite yet. Nervous about that juuuuuust a little bit..). And either at dress rehearsal or performance night, I'll get someone to record it.


Previous performances are here if anyone is interested:

Really cool videos! The amount of progress is impressive on the second one, looking forward to see the 2018 one!

I remember both (man I'm old :P) and they're still super cool! You always have such impressive clean lines. And I still just love the sass in the intro of the second one. :) 

Hey, what does that say about me, then!? ;) How about, rather, we've just been friends for awhile?

That second performance was so much fun. The wig totally sold it for me.

Related somewhat to my own mental gymnastics over the last couple challenges, if any of you lovely people have any input to add, I'd love to hear it over here:

First workout of the new year with some squats and other lower-body activities. (Shoulders and low back are still pretty toast from the hour+ of snow shoveling I did on Saturday)


Back to work tomorrow. Also, first day for my new boss, so that'll be interesting.

Omg yay performance month! :D 

Yay! I'm going to attempt to get a full run-through of my routine tonight. We will see if I succeed or if I've set myself a challenging bar to meet.

Grr... I need to send my performance music to the show coordinator as an mp3 file. Apparently, using only my iPhone, this is impossible.


There should be a way to save a file as an mp3 through itunes on a computer but not sure if you can do it through the phone itself. I've had to do a lot of file shenanigans for shows so if there's any way I can help I am happy to!!

I know there is on a computer, but I'm trying to avoid synching my personal phone with my work laptop.
