First of all, thank goodness for Family Day! Yesterday we did have a No Parachute rehearsal but then I was free to enjoy my afternoon. I was given some much needed time to unwind and relax. I was able to reflect on Friday (which felt like a dream) and I just wanted to take the time to thank all of the performers,venue, volunteers and guest who made it out to My First Time- A Valentines Tribute.
I was blown away (once again) by the amount of support and love that was in the room. The performances were top notch, and I was so excited to see members of the community using the event as an opportunity to take risks and play. No Parachute is all about taking chances and trying new things, so we were so happy to have other performers really putting themselves out there. I was also excited by the fact that there were a lot of people from the aerial community as well as the theatre community present at the event. When I started Np I wanted to bring those two very important worlds of mine together, and at our fundraiser I was thrilled to see the two worlds mingling. I hope you all made some new friends!
If you were there, THANK YOU! If you couldn’t make it, I know you were there in spirit and you will have a chance to donate to our indiegogo that is currently being developed. It will be out ASAP with videos from rehearsals updates and more!
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
