On Being a Good Circus Student: An Ode to Teach-ability

What makes a good student? IS there such a thing? Is your crappy attitude getting in the way of your training and making your teacher crazy, or are you the student your coach cant wait to work with? Take my little quiz and find out!

Deep, Dark Circus Confessions

Oh, Dear Danglers, I have a confession to make (savor this moment, because it wont come often). Remember that little post I wrote about circus being hard and not expecting instant results? Yes. Well. Ahem. I may or may not have disregarded my own advice, and pitched a crying, screaming hissy fit in German wheel class when I felt I wasnt progressing fast enough. BUT, in my defense, my mojo had fled about half an hour before (it was scared), and Id been working really hard and I hadnt eaten because Im on a diet and.. yeah, youre not buying it either. So what should I have done when I hit that wall of frustration and was ready to spit nails and start a bar fight? (Hint: it wasnt swear, snap at my coach, or bitch slap somebody. I did a lot of the first and a little of the second, but only thought about the third thats gotta count for something, right?)

So, are you a superty awesome student, or a giant pain in the ass? Lets find out!

True or False

I accept instruction and critiques graciously and enthusiastically.

I take the work seriously, but almost wet my pants laughing when so-and-sos pants fell off while doing the Full Monty (that was funny, yo).

I understand that mojo comes and goes. Its elusive, like a ninja.

I try to leave my crappy day/crazypants/BO at the door.

I smile and laugh, laugh and smile. When I do it while twitching, people back away and I get more silk time.

I take myself super seriously. I tell myself that I will DIE if I dont get this trick today. Because I will. I know I will. And Im NEVER GOING TO GET THIS, AM I? YOU CAN TELL ME THE TRUTH! I CAN TAKE IT! I SUCK, DONT I?

I often infer that theres some secret that my teacher is not telling me thats preventing me from getting that trick it has nothing to do with practice. (Tell me, bitch! Before I cut you!)

I often cry, get really mad, and sulk. I do my best work when Im really pissed off.

I frequently argue with my coach when he /she give me corrections. They love that.

I find complaining to be an excellent mode of expression.

If you answered TRUE to 1-5, congrats! You are a superty awesome student. If you answered TRUE to 6-10, theres room for improvement. Get on that.

The Nekkid Truth

At the end of the day, its really about an Attitude of Gratitude, isnt it? I am so grateful to be learning so much from someone so skilled. I get to use (and break) my body in unexpected ways, play with others who are just as eccentric as myself (thats the nice way of putting it), and roll around in a giant hamster wheel and call it art.

Theres freedom in allowing yourself to suck, even when you want so badly to be good. From here on out, my only response to correction will be thank you. When I want to scream, I will throw up my hands (or maybe just throw up) and laugh instead. I will love this flippin apparatus wastefully and extravagantly, and put my focus squarely on the work where it belongs, instead of on me (where I really want to put it). Join me, wont you? Everybody wins. Ill see you and your awesome self in the air!
