My first time jamming in Perth! What a lovely crew. First up I did some more side star work with local teacher Sky. Although side star is a foundational move I’m finding it challenging. Later I got the opportunity to meet and play with Tori McLarty. I managed to base bird, throne and transitioned between the two for the first time with Tori – very exciting!

In non acro news I took my first series of steps on a slackline at this jam also. Many thanks to King William UK for his tips on how to mount the slackline – stand with one leg either side the stack, then rest your foot on the line with no weight before launching off the ground to try to stand. Many thanks to the anonymous Perth jammer who provided additional tips on bending my knees, stepping with my heels instead of toes and keeping my hips square.
