Mike and Mandy have been two of my favorite subjects to work with on a semi-regular basis. Their dedication to their art- and their enthusiasm for sharing and teaching that art- was a crucial element in the success of the trapeze assignment. They've also shown me what can be accomplished with intense focus and a strong work ethic, not to mention deltoids the the size of volleyballs.
Outside of their jobs teaching at the Trapeze School of New York in DC, they perform together as a balancing act. With incredible skill, strength, and trust they use each other's body weight to achieve near impossible shapes and configurations, turning themselves into a constantly morphing sculpture that is as mesmerizing as it is incredible.
