“It has been good to be home and I love teaching. It is a good feeling to be up there. It defies words. In the aerial yoga and meditation classes you have to be focused only on this. It clears your mind. You have to be responsible for the fabric, your mind, and your body. You have to remove your ego. I want to make Kudzu a destination to do circus workshops, circus retreats, and a place for the community. Every person can do a little bit of circus. Why not fly?”
Every person can do a little bit of circus. Why not fly?
“I never meant to run away and join the circus, but my friend took me to a class the week I moved to Brooklyn. I moved to New York because I needed a fresh start. Dance was the original plan, but I had an injury and couldn’t dance. I freelanced with different circus groups and joined a formal troupe that just did warehouse parties. We did one in 2012, with Moby spinning. It was epic. I started this program to get as much circus as possible to come to Fairhope. When I was living in New York, I had to work a bunch of different jobs to pay the bills and work on this. I can focus full-time on circus down here. I wrote a book on Fairhope, I know it is a good place to do things like this. I want to make this a place where my friends can come down and do circus in the winter. I was only going to be here part time, but I got the beautiful Kudzu building and now I can’t take time off.”
