MEET THE MATILDAS

Acrobatic Edition

 

How does it feel to be an acrobat?

 

Jenna Weir

 

Jaime MacLean

 

Hannah Levinson

 

>> Jaime MacLean: Exciting. It’s like when your very first show goes, you’re like “should I do it, or should I not?” But when you do it you feel so good about it. You feel so proud.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: I really enjoyed it. I like that you were just free. And you could just kinda- you can’t let go, but you can let go with your emotions.

 

>> Jenna Weir: It’s like a rollercoaster, in line, and you get scared for the rollercoaster and you don’t know how you’re going to feel. But in the middle of the rollercoaster you’re saying “yeah! I wanna do it, I wanna do it again!”

 

[music]

 

What was your favourite activity today?

 

>> Hannah Levinson: I really liked climbing the rope. That was really fun. I tried to get really hight.

 

[music]

 

>> Jenna Weir: I think my favourite one was the slings. I liked how we went out into the T and the ball into the T.

 

>> Jaime MacLean: I don’t know which one on the silks, but I loved the silks. The silks are so fun.

 

[music]

 

Would you run away to join the circus?

 

>> Jenna Weir: I think maybe. I had a lot of fun today, so, I don’t know.

 

>> Jaime MacLean: If I had the choice, my dad would let me, and I had the courage to do that… Definitely I would do that.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: I think I would, definitely, yes, because it’s so much fun and so exciting.

 

>> Jenna Weir: Yeah.

 

>> Hannah Levinson: The feeling you get when you’re up there is like, “wow. I actually did it.”
