Alya's Spring Circus Show

Alya has been taking classes for over a year now at Gravity Works, a local school for circus performance arts.  She has been developing skills on the hoop and the trapeze, but her real love is performing on the "tela" (Spanish for "fabric").  This takes great strength and concentration, and we are amazed at how well she has done.

Recently, she was asked to perform with her troupe at our local shopping mall on a busy Saturday afternoon.  And much to Alya's chagrin, I brought the Nikon along to capture it all...

There was quite a crowd on hand!

Here she prepares for the "Goddess Fall"...

...and unrolls and falls as I hold my breath!
