St. Louis Stilt Walkers

Have I told you about the St. Louis Stilt Walkers club? You may have seen us walking around Tower Grove Park in nice weather.

This week we met Mr. Michael DeFilippo on one of our Sunday stilt walks (Em Piro of the St. Louis Fringe Festival likes to call them “Sunday Constitutionals”) and he snapped a few fun pics. Stay tuned to Mayor Francis Slay’s weblog for our spot as Pic of the Week this coming Tuesday! http://mayorslay.com/bigpicture/

Brooke & Paige

Someone asked me over the weekend what’s my favorite age range to coach for.

I can’t say I have a favorite age range. I think perhaps a better question would be “What kind of person do you like to teach?” And my answer would be “Anyone with genuine enthusiasm for aerial work.” Enthusiasm makes all the difference. It doesn’t matter if you’re 8 or 80, so long as you’re happy to be learning and willing to give it a try!

These two sisters are some of my favorite long-time students. Having the privilege of watching them grow, gain strength and confidence in their skill, and finally show off their routine in front of their family in friends definitely tops my list of memorable teaching experiences.

A Hoochie Coo Moulin Review!

Come join us tonight for The Green Hour: A Hoochie Coo Moulin Review! at the Coliseum nightclub on Washington.

This month’s Hoochie Coo Review brings you all the dazzle and glam of a Parisian nightclub, with a dizzying absinthe twist. Tonights show will feature some favorite numbers from the recent Grand Delirium Beggars Show and – of course – that powerhouse dance troupe: The Hoochie Coochie Girls themselves! Join your host, Lola Van Ella, and prepared to be wowed by dancing girls, aerial acrobatics, feats of balance, and sexy fire manipulation.

Also, ask to taste some of the Coliseum’s newest themed drinks like:  ”The Lola Van-Tini”, “The Showgirl”, “The Silver Screen”, “The Flaming Foxy Bomb”, “The Rail Rider” and more! (And oh, are they dangerously delicious)

There will also be all kinds of lovely sparkly things from Batty For Bling! Pasties, fascinators, hair clips and costume accessories for all your show girl needs!

Please help us celebrate this fabulous new theatrical extravaganza! Tickets are only $15, and there will be plenty of cabaret seating for everyone.
