Now What?

With all the rehearsals and preparation for the Orton Park Festival performance by Cycropia Aerial Dance behind me, I find my self with a bit of a quandary. For the past four months (and the four months prior to that leading up to the spring performance) my life has pretty much been a whirlwind of activity.


Now the show is over, and there is nothing on deck yet for which I need to rehearse. I have a lull. So now what? I suddenly have a few evenings a week back. Tired muscles will get a rest. That twinge in my elbow can heal. All that specific muscle can fade away.


I would prefer that last one not occur! I need to find ways to incorporate some specific muscle work into my life to keep the tone I now have. Some of it I can get on a simple chin bar in the basement, but I know the likelihood of me doing determined "exercise": Slim. I can, and will, step up the warmup exercises I do for contact improv dance, adding in some harder arm work. I can double down on the drills that work core muscles. All that is easy, as it is simply ramping up things I already do. I hope it is enough.
