My Defining Moment

My defining moment was last year in dance class. We were having "circus week" where professional circus performers came in to teach us about modern circus. One of the activities we got to try was static trapeze. I immediately knew I wanted to continue learning new tricks and routines even though I could barely do one pushup. That moment defined me because I never quit trying after that. I work incredibly hard to develop my skills and even got a trapeze solo in our big end of the year dance show. I've become more dedicated and passionate about the aerial arts than anything else in my life. Now I go to a circus school to train on a more professional level and will probably have the aerial arts as a big part of my life and career. None of the opportunities I have right now would be possible if I hadn't pushed myself to try trapeze that day.


  1. It's interesting how something like a school visit from people as unique as circus performers can have such on impact on someone's life. Without such an experience, you would not have found a new love. Also, where is circus school? I didn't even know that was a thing!

  2. This is very cool as that one day has changed your life and helped you realize what you want to do with your career. I never knew that Circus acts would have such a big impact on someones life.
