  • I made it into the Slutcracker!
I’m not a trained dancer. I didn’t start taking any dance classes until I was 19 or 20, and starting dance as an adult really drives home developmental windows. People who have danced their whole lives literally have parts of their brains that developed differently, and just like with language there are critical periods to changing the neural pathways in your brain when it comes to movement. Being in burlesque always came with a lot of imposter syndrome for me because I had so much catching up to do when it came to dance technique and learning choreography seemed like a Herculean task. I auditioned twice before (in like 2010–2011ish) and didn’t get in, I never got feedback on why but I can only imagine it’s because I couldn’t pick up choreography then and I would get visibly discouraged during the audition.
After a few years of circus schools, dance classes, and some good ol’ confidence building I went into this year’s audition in the mindset of showing who I am as a movement artist moreso than getting the choreography perfectly. I’m super thankful for this opportunity and I’m really excited to see what Slut Season brings!

  • First performance back in Lithuania. Now I really feel I'm here, but what should I do about it?

  • It's been 3 years since I started my circus journey, and what a journey it's been! Swipe to see a shot from one of my very first lessons! 🤣

  • With parkour, I try to train absolutely everything on both sides. But how many of us can honestly say we bother learning flips on our less dominant side?

I think this is probably the only flip I can do on both sides but I would very much like to start getting comfortable with more

Can you tell which leg I prefer? 🎥 @adammarr

  • My passion🖤

Это те существа на Планете, к которым я отношусь с трепетом, и которые завораживали меня всю мою осознанную жизнь. В детстве на одной из тренировок по танцам пришла в танцкласс, встала перед зеркалом и стала придумывать "танец медузы". А через некоторое время в ансамбле я доросла до роли медузы в номере "Океан", и это был предел мечтаний😆 Наверное я была самая медузная медуза) 
На втором видео - хрисаора, самая изящная из медуз на мой взгляд.
⠀
Невероятной красоты существа.

  • מודה ליקום על שניתנה לי האפשרות לעשות את מה שאני אוהבת!!
אני יוצאת ללמד תכף ב@kirkasomania
.. ולמרות כל השנה האחרונה, ושכביכול כבר התרגלתי, עדיין זה מדהים איך כל פעם מחדש אני קצת מתרגשת לקראת היום שני הזה. ולקראת הילדים המדהימים האלו שמרגשים אותי. כמו לראות פרח בר צומח וגדל.❤
אז שיהיה לכולנו שבוע מוצלח ומלא עשייה טובה🌈🙏
