The amazing Sally Miller

Last week I had the joy of working (again) with Sally -aerialist, gymnast, balancer, contortionist. Gymnasts give me great pleasure not least because of the control over their entire body that they have. There is a very different (from,  say,  dancers) rhythm to their work, the preparation, the execution and the finishing. I was also interested in the rigorous  warming up of the specific bits of body that were going to be most tested. When Sally was going to do a particularly difficult position she would stretch for two or three minutes beforehand. Warmth was also absolutely critical. Sally has remained almost entirely injury- free during her career and that is clearly not just luck
