L2 Competition, APC 2013

My L2 Competition piece was my very first competition performance. I didn't have a character, or a story, or any real goal besides putting my janeiro pole trick in my routine. When I got to my final piece de resistance; a backbend to split, I ended up getting dizzy from the combination of my spin pole combo and the really bright lights and I backbended off of the stage as captured in the video above! I learned so much about how performances aren't ever really planned no many how many times I run them and how important it is to stay authentic even when the moves don't go my way.
