and My Circus Family

I’ve recently embarked upon a new hobby. I’ve always liked to dance (in various genres) and have taken bellydance classes for many years, but now I’m starting to involve fire props. When I saw my dance mates doing this, I knew I had to try it. When I lit my fire fans for the first time, I was quite terrified, but now that I’m getting comfortable with it, I can’t wait to try the next prop, and the next. This is the most fun I’ve had in a long time, or maybe ever.

In doing this, I’ve found a group of friends unlike any other. We love our circus family.
