Champagne showers

Another night in my glass haha. This was so much fun! Just playing around, throwing confetti, feeling sexy. Yup I felt hella sexy :)! My right knee was quite bruised after tho, since I was sitting on it all the time oops. But it’s okay, it was worth it!

Blue Monday?

Blue Monday say whaaat? No Blue Monday for me! This was my styling for one round during the clubnight on January 18th. I really like how this look turned out! The hair made it very playful and young. Or something like that. Anyways, I think it just looked very cute and I felt comfortable wearing this. New fav hairstyle too!

Top – H&M
Jacket – Berschka
Shorts – vintage Levi’s 501

Dikke vissa

Another clubnight for the books! Dikke Vissa is always fun to work at. Always busy and good vibes! I loved my look wearing the purple bandana. Not something I usually wear but I think it worked really well! Oh and see the cellulite on my butt and legs in the first pic? Just wanted to point that out, most women ‘struggle’ with it and it’s nothing to be ashamed of!

Aerial loop – new act!

New act whazzuuup?! We wanted some extra flying moments in the dinnershow in Villa Thalia so Anuschka Bozo, our choreographer, created an amazing aerial loop act for me! I loooove to perform this one! It feels so good. The act is so strong and neat, with a lot of quick spinning involved. Oh I can’t get over it. I want to keep doing this for the rest of my life. Yes please?!

Flying high

Wow what a show we had last week in Ziggo Dome Amsterdam! On September 19th the Liberty Global Tech Summit 2018 was held there and me, Sanne, Paula and Annika had the honor to perform an aerial hoop act in the main hall where the guests were having a massive dinner. The whole space was lit, but when we were starting they turn off all the lights and put spots on us so everyone was really watching and paying attention which was really nice. We were hanging quite high, between 7 and 9 meters, but it felt so gooood! Our show was a huge success and everyone was so happy afterwards! Thank Pzia for this job and thanks girls for the great work!

10 years ago..

30 – 05 – 2008 ⭐️

Today exactly 10 years ago something crazy happened. After a rollercoaster ride I became the WINNER of the first season of HOLLAND’S GOT TALENT! It still feels unreal to be able to say this. I was a 14 year old girl, rhythmic gymnastics Dutch champion, challenging myself to do more with the talent I was given. I didn’t apply for the program to win. I just wanted to show the world what I loved to do. Without my parents I would have never been able to achieve what I have achieved today. Always taking me where ever I needed to go, wether it was training, a show, rehearsals and even a circus summer camp in Montrèal, Canada; at least one of them was always there. A massive thank you for everything! ❤️ Also a big thank you to my sister and brother for their continuing support and letting me claim our parents a lot 🙈 These four people mean the absolute world to me.

I’m beyond grateful that I’m able to say that my passion is still my job. This story is far from over..💖

Flexible Friday – HGT Memories

I thought it was time to bring back some memories from already 5,5 years ago. On march 25th 2008, at 14 years old, I auditioned for Holland’s Got Talent. I was so nervous about how people were going to react on what I was showing them. Me and my family were already so used to me being flexible and doing ‘weird stuff’ that we weren’t sure about it being spectacular enough. I couldn’t wish for a better ending. A standing ovation from the whole audience including the judges, three yes’es, an overload of amazing messages and so it began. For the semi final I did a hoop/ring act and I wasn’t sure if it would draw as much attention as my audition which I did in the tissu/aerial silk. Luckily the audience, judges and viewers liked it again and I was put in first place so I immediately went to the finals. I only had 2 weeks to come up with a complete new act and costume. It was a stressfull time but we did it. The beautiful big ring I barrowed from a circus-friend and I had to bring back the tissu, because that was how the Dutch people first became to know me. It went better than I could have ever dreamt of and in the end.. I was handed over the trophy from the first season of Holland’s Got Talent. Thank you so much for voting and supporting me back then. It still means so much to me. I can’t believe that it has already been such a long time, but people still show so much love and support, I’m so thankful! Let’s go back in time and enjoy the video’s :)! // Ik vond het wel tijd om wat herinneringen boven te halen van al weer 5,5 jaar geleden. Op 25 maart 2008, toen ik 14 jaar oud was, deed ik auditie voor Holland’s Got Talent. Ik was heel nerveus over hoe mensen zouden reageren op wat ik hen zou laten zien. Ikzelf en mijn familie zijn er zo aan gewend dat ik vrij lenig ben en ‘gekke dingen’ kan en daardoor wisten we niet of het wel spectaculair genoeg zou zijn. Ik had geen betere uitkomst durven wensen. Een staande ovatie van het hele publiek inclusief de jury, drie keer ja, een overload aan geweldige reacties en zo begon het. Voor de halve finale deed ik een hoepel/ring act en ik was er niet van overtuigd dat dit minstens net zo veel indruk zou maken als mijn auditie die ik in de tissu/doeken deed. Gelukkig vond het publiek, de jury en de kijkers thuis het weer mooi en ging ik direct door naar de finale dankzij de stemmen. Ik had slechts twee weken om een geheel nieuwe act in elkaar te zetten en ook nog een kostuum te laten maken. Het was een periode met wat stress, maar het is ons gelukt. De mooie grote ring had ik van een circus vriend geleend en ik vond dat ik de doeken weer terug moest brengen omdat dat het gene was waar het Nederlandse publiek mij voor het eerst mee zag. Het ging beter dan ik had durven dromen en uiteindelijk.. Kreeg ik de troffee van het eerste seizoen van Holland’s Got Talent overhandigd. Ontzettend mega bedankt voor het stemmen en supporten toentertijd. Het betekent nog steeds heel veel voor mij. Ik kan niet geloven dat het zo lang geleden is, maar mensen nog steeds zo veel liefde en waardering tonen, ik ben heel dankbaar! Laten we even terug gaan in de tijd en geniet van de video’s :)!

Training with Jean Passos

Do you remember that sexy, almost naked guy in a bathtub climbing in the air in the silks on Beat The Best? I’m sure you do! If you don’t, there’s a video below. He is a colleague and friend of mine who has his own studio. I’ve been training with him for the past two weeks for a new hula hoop/ring act, but also for a secret little project where I have to do the aerial silk. I will be in the most popular and longest tv-show ever made in Holland. The day before it will be aired on TV I will announce it of course! // Herinner jij je nog die sexy, bijna naakte man in een bad die in de doeken klom in Beat The Best? Ik weet zeker van wel! Als het toch niet zo is, hieronder kun je een video zien. Hij is een collega en vriend van mij en heeft zijn eigen studio. De afgelopen twee weken heb ik bij hem getraind om een nieuwe hoepel/ring act te maken, maar ook voor een klein geheim projectje waarvoor in ik zelf weer de doeken in ga. Ik zal te zien zijn in de populairste, langst lopende serie ooit gemaakt in Nederland.  De dag voor het op TV zal zijn laat ik dat uiteraard weten!

Jean also gives training himself in all different kinds of acrobatics. His studio is located in Amsterdam. All the info is listed in the picture below! // Jean geeft zelf ook training in allerlei verschillende soorten van acrobatiek. Zijn studio zit in Amsterdam. Alle info staat op de foto hieronder! Jean, ontzettend bedankt dat ik bij/met je mag trainen!
