Bernie Feinberg
What brought you to Bumbershoot Aerial Arts?
I learned about Bumbershoot in 2010 when my granddaughters, 8 & 5, were taking a class where they were climbing the silks.
What is your favorite apparatus to work on?
If I had to choose one, it's the fabric.
What is your favorite thing about Bumbershoot?
I like the Shoot because everyone wants you to do well, learn and enjoy yourself.
What kinds of things do you do when you aren’t hanging in the air?
When I'm not in the air, I do ground based exercise, Pilates, etc. But for the time being, I'm holding on to my day job as a psychoanalyst.
What is your favorite dessert?
My favorite dessert is the yogurt blueberry pie my wife Linda makes. It's to die for.
When you are having a tough day in class, what do you tell yourself?
When it's really tough in class and I wish I was at the beach instead, I remind myself how much I've learned so far.
What is your favorite trick? Least favorite?
Leg lock sequence, where you shoot through the fabric a seat. Love it. Fond also of the crucifix. Least favorite so far are drops.
If you could run away to a desert island with one person from Bumbershoot who would it be?
You want to know who I'd run away with? Tena and also Kris. Oh, also April. And Jerome. No kidding, there are a lot of fun Bumbershoot people I'd run off with.
